As we get closer to the election of a new mayor for the City of Los Angeles, NBC4 Southern California and its Spanish-language partner Telemundo52 along with 89.3 KPCC-FM and USC Sol Price School of Public Policy are joining together to co-host a mayoral debate between City Councilman Eric Garcetti and City Controller Wendy Greuel.
The debate will air live and commercial-free on Monday, April 22 on NBC4, Telemundo52 and 89.3 KPCC-FM from 7-8 p.m.
NBC4’s long-time Chief Political Reporter Conan Nolan will moderate the debate, and will be joined by three panelists who will ask the candidates questions about the important issues facing the city: Frank Stoltze, KPCC crime and politics reporter; Ana Patricia Candiani, Telemundo52 news anchor; and Jack H. Knott, dean of the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy.
The debate will cover a wide range of critical issues facing the city right now, including jobs and the economy, pension reform, a growing budget problem, and public safety issues such as police and fire resources.
Leading the discussion is NBC4 veteran reporter Conan Nolan, who covers state and local politics, and is well known for his interviews with top political leaders as the host of "News Conference," the longest running political/public affairs television program in Southern California, which airs Sundays at 9 a.m.
“We’re excited that NBC4 is bringing this debate and critical city issues directly to our viewers to help them make an informed decision on Election Day,” said Todd Mokhtari, vice president of news at NBC4 Southern California.
