Re: "Breaking News From The Rock"
THE ROCK SHOCKS PUBLIC ACCESS TV
WITH "BREAKING NEWS FROM THE ROCK"
LOS OSOS -- For anyone who truly gives a damn about accelerating
change in what Howard Jarvis once called "the most corrupt county in
California," the revolution is now being televised.
The Rock, the only Los Osos-based newspaper, has launched "Breaking
News From The Rock" on Public Access Channel 2. "Breaking News" airs
Mondays at 11:30 p.m., Wednesdays at 10 a.m. and Thursdays at 5 p.m.
The first edition of the show features an in-studio interview with Morro
Bay clean water activists Marla Jo Bruton and Richard Sadowsky on the dire
condition of the Morro Bay/Cayucos wastewater collection system, and
exclusive, dramatic videotape of the serious damage.
"Breaking News" is written by creator Ed Ochs, editor of The Rock,
produced by Cinthea Coleman's Boffo! Productions, and filmed and edited
by Dave Duggan for Charter Communications.
Said Ochs, "Don't try to adjust your expensive TV if you should
stumble on to the opening seconds of 'Breaking News From The Rock' on
Public Access Channel 2 -- your picture isn't broken. True to the
no-holds-barred, fiercely independent voice of The Rock newspaper,
'Breaking News' blazes new media trails that previously did not exist
on the Central Coast.
If you like The Rock, you'll love 'Breaking News.' If
you hate The Rock, you will love to hate 'Breaking News' for all the
reasons you hated it before, but now even more than ever on television.
"Anyone interested in the Los Osos sewer dilemma will want to know
how serious the sewer problem is in Morro Bay and Cayucos and what it
could mean for Los Osos -- and make a real effort to watch the show.
Unless, of course, they just don't want to know how heavy it is. The
show is definitely not for those with low self-esteem, no sense of
humor, inbred biases, or extreme political beliefs."
Just in case viewers didn't get the message the first time, Ochs
said, the next two editions of "Breaking News" are in production and
will air in August.
