KOCT’s partnerships with schools, the faith community and The Coast News:
At KOCT’s recent Open House we met parents and teenagers interested in KOCT and our Internship program. Many of our local schools, such as Rancho Buena Vista, have excellent student internship programs and KOCT has trained many of their students and utilized their skills to produce community programming.
KOCT continues to produce a wide variety of programs—documentaries and topical talk shows such as North County Talks: Faith & the Common Good. The program is hosted by the Pastor of North Coast United Methodist Church, Pastor TS Harris. They have tackled many challenging and topical subjects such as the Minimum Wage, Human Slavery and Affordable Housing. Check out their most recent show.
I would also like to announce a new KOCT partnership with another local media resource, The Coast News. Now, in every addition of this weekly newspaper you can find a weekly listing of KOCT latest programs and the date and time they will be airing. Thank you to Chris Kidd, the Advertising Manager and Associate Publisher for the Coast News Group for his support of KOCT. The Coast News is also expanding and starting this month they will be publishing an inland addition of their popular newspaper. KOCT wishes them well in their new endeavor. We also appreciate that The Coast News Managing Editor, Tony Cabala, has been offering his expertise as one of the journalists on our popular Journalist Roundtable program.
