Background
"Which Way, LA?" is a public service radio program of KCRW, the National Public Radio station of Santa Monica Junior College, Santa Monica, California. "Which Way, LA? began in 1992 as a weekday program examining the state of Los Angeles after the civil calamity that were the 1992 riots in Los Angeles. Under the guidance of host Warren Olney and producer Ruth Seymour, "Which Way, LA?" was originally intended only as a temporary program, but its depth and relevance to Los Angeles social and political events resulted in the show's becoming part of KCRW's regular programming. Now publicized by KCRW as the program "on the issues Southern Californians care about," "Which Way, LA?" is a fixture on the city's air waves and stands as a landmark program in the history of Los Angeles broadcast journalism.
