Kaplan on at Air America Radio


The program schedule for the liberal talk show net that takes off March 31 is out, and as reported in December, USC's Martin Kaplan is on it. "So What Else is News?" will air Monday through Friday at 7 p.m. for an hour.

Based in Los Angeles, this is a one-hour program showcasing the intersection of politics, media and popular culture. This program will feature analysis and reports from the presidential campaign, as well as a daily reporters’ roundtable on how the news of the day is affected and reflected by the media. Marty will also cover the spinning of the news with a regular segment called “The Corrections.” This is also the place to hear the political voice of Hollywood, with celebrity guest interviews from the entertainment industries.

Kaplan is associate dean of the USC Annenberg School for Communciation and director of the Norman Lear Center, as well as a former speechwriter for Walter Mondale in the White House, deputy op-ed editor and columnist for the Washington Star, commentator on NPR's "All Things Considered" and the "CBS Morning News," and ex-Disney studio executive. He also has been quoted in the L.A. Times on a few occasions. Air America Radio will broadcast in Los Angeles on KBLA (AM 1580).
