CORBA’s Mark Langton and Steve Messer recently spent some quality time with radio DJ Cynthia Fox. They will be appearing this coming Sunday on the KLOS program Spotlight on the Community.
In the half-hour segment Langton and Messer will be talking about the Fat Tire Fest as well as CORBA’s advocacy and outreach programs. Cynthia’s enthusiastic support for any activity that gets kids into the open air getting exercise made it easy for them to talk about the importance of having bike-friendly parks and public land. They’ll touch on High School Mountain Bike racing, CORBA’s trail care crew, Youth Adventures, the L.A. Bike Plan, and much more. Fox, like many Angelenos, was surprised to learn that bicycles are not welcome on L.A. City Park trails and unimproved access roads.
Aside from her regular 10-3 Monday through Friday KLOS slot, The “Fox” as Cynthia is known to her fans, hosts this outstanding show every Sunday morning. Spotlight on the Community gives non-profit organizations an opportunity to reach out to the public through mainstream media. CORBA is grateful to have been invited to talk about our programs and the mountain biking issues we all care about so much.
The show will air on Sunday, October 17, 2010 at 6:00 a.m. You can listen by tuning in to KLOS (95.5 on the FM dial) as you prepare for the Fat Tire Fest! After it airs, the program can be downloaded as a podcast from KLOS on-demand.
