"L.A. Business Today" up for national award

Last December, I was interviewed by a show called L.A. Business Today on Channel 35, a cable channel programmed by the City of Los Angeles. In my segment, we discussed a variety of real estate issues, including both the residential and commercial markets. The other segment was an interview with Mike Malin of The Dolce Group (owners of bars and restaurants).

If you misssed this segment and want to watch it, click here.

The good news is that this particular show has been named a finalist in its nomination category for the 2009 Government Programming Awards, which will be held in early October in 2009.

The bad news is that due to budget cuts, the City will no longer be able to fund production of this show. Instead, the City has given the producers the opportunity to sell sponsorships for the show -- the sort of commercial spots that one might see on a local PBS station (subject of course to approval by the City).

About the show: LA Business Today is a new talk program hosted by veteran TV reporters Bob and Sharon Jimenez. The two will be interviewing business leaders in Los Angeles who, collectively, drive the engine which makes Los Angeles among the most dynamic economic centers in the world. Bringing their combined sixty years of television interview skills to the show, Bob and Sharon Jimenez will open up the dialogue of business for viewers of LA Cityview 35, as they look at business and personal survival as our unique city copes with historic change.

This could be a great opportunity to get in front of a variety of city officials and decision makers in the local business community. If you're interested in sponsoring, please contact
