December Oceanside Spectrum

Oceanside Spectrum is KOCT’s community television show with a guest list as diverse as our north county community. The program is hosted by Elaine Swann— “the Etiquette Lady”.  Our community (& KOCT) is lucky to have this professional host interview our local community activists, leaders and non-profits. Ms. Swann has shared her etiquette advice on various radio programs, as well as on the TODAY SHOW, ABC, NBC, CBS, The CW, FOX News, The STYLE Network, and CNN Headline News. A recent New York Times article touted her as one of the "Emily Posts of the Digital Age". As the go-to leader in everything etiquette her advice has appeared in publications such as the Modern Bride Magazine, Kiplinger's Magazine, and several newspapers across the US.

Our December Oceanside Spectrum has a great line-up of guests and organizations and things to do, including art in our community and in our schools and support for Camp Pendleton families. Also in this edition is information about a 2016 Youth Success Week and an organization that is providing shelter and services for our veterans.
Our first guests discussed Artbeat’s ‘Crazy Christmas Sweater’ party and exhibit.  Elaine then interviewed Cathy Nykiel, the Sunset Market Manager, who talked about the First Friday Art Walk and the weekly Sunset Market.
One of the most active and much needed YMCA’s in north county is the Armed Services YMCA that serves our military families on Camp Pendleton.  The new Executive Director, Chris Keane, made his first appearance on the program to share information about Santa’s Workshop and their Secret Santa program.
