Rising Up With Sonali

Gustavo Arellano on the OC Weekly and LA Weekly Seismic Shifts Under New Ownership

Former OC Weekly Editor-in-Chief Gustavo Arellano will be our special guest today to reflect on the changing media landscape as the OC Weekly and LA Weekly experience seismic shifts under new ownership, billionaire owners resist unionizing at other outlets, and journalists in general are facing a grim scenario. Arellano will also put the crisis in journalism into a national context when the need for high-quality and trust-worthy journalism is more needed than ever. Then, we’ll continue our focus on the changing media landscape with author Mara Einstein whose fascinating book about online digital marketing is called Black Ops Advertising: Native Ads, Content Marketing, and the Covert World Of the Digital Sell.
