KOCT has produced a number of new, interesting North County focused programs since our last blog.

We now produce, twice per month, a topical program, North County Roundtable. A new show is produced on the 1st and 3rd Friday of every month and at 6 pm and 9 pm on KOCT’s channel 18.  Our Feb. 16th program had a diverse group of interviewees starting with an exploration of the legalization of marijuana.

 Host Alison St. John interviewed Dallin Young, the Executive Director for the Association of Cannabis Professionals.

Our second guest was Neil Nagata, the President of the San Diego Farm Bureau and Nagata Brothers who discussed their opposition to the proposed SOAR initiative (Save Open space and Agricultural Resources)

Our last guest covered all things political in North County including the recent wave of District based elections. Tom Shepard, President of Tom Shepard and Associates had a far ranging discussion about the upcoming primaries, 76th Assembly and the 49th Congressional race.

Speaking of politics: A most unusual council meeting occurred on January 24th in which the City Council selected former City Manager, Peter Weis to be the Mayor after the resignation of Mayor Wood due to illness. Watch it by clicking Jan. 24th City Council Meeting concerning Mayor Selection and move the time-line to 22:07
