The Times has a story out of Ventura County today on Lance Orozco, the news director (and only reporter) at KCLU-FM (88.3) who was named one of the L.A. Press Club's "Journalists of the Year" this month. The station based in a freshman dorm at Cal Lutheran University has just five employees and earlier this year won ten Golden Mike awards and five AP awards. Orozco, who used to do the weather at Channel 2, edged out Warren Olney of KCRW and Larry Mantle of KPCC for the press club honor as top radio journalist.
