A weekly blog from Tom Reeser, KOCT’s Executive Director
· Special thanks to the Editor of OsideNews, Steve Marcotte, for his series on this year's Oceanside parade. Steve was a guest on KOCT’s Journalist Roundtable during his start-up phase and the paper has been very successful and is widely read. Steve arrived early on Saturday, July 2nd, to watch the KOCT crew set-up , record, and air the parade ‘live’ on KOCT’s channel 19. KOCT has covered Oceanside parades since the early 1980’s. Thanks to our two volunteer Hosts Kristi Hawthorne and Jim Schroder for once again providing color commentary. AND thanks to Main Street Oceanside for Underwriting the parade coverage for this very popular program. KOCT appreciates the photos and press provided by the OsideNews. KOCT is in support and solidarity with another local media resource. A great way to stay in tune with your community is to read the OsideNews.com AND watch KOCT-Your North County Channel.
