Schiff, blasted by GOP after Mueller report, says oversight of Trump won’t stop

Rep. Adam Schiff faced Republican calls for him to resign Monday after the Attorney General’s letter summarizing the special counsel’s report on the 2016 election contradicted the Burbank Democrat’s claims of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Schiff stood his ground. “President Trump’s attacks on me, and those of his allies in Congress, are nothing new,” Schiff said in a statement in which the House Intelligence Committee chairman indicated the panel will continue its separate inv...

How to get to Dodger and Angel stadiums without taking a car

Bostonians roll their eyes when asked, “What trains go to Fenway Park?” That’s because they all do. Yankee Stadium? Take the 4, B or D trains and from the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven lines outside the city, it’s a straight shot to the House That Ruth Built. But getting to L.A. Dodgers and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim baseball games becomes a game-within-the-game involving fighting traffic, paying for parking and then sitting in more traffic just to get home. With the famous “Freeway Series” co...

Radio: What would you do with KLOS and KABC? Here’s what you said

The question was seemingly simple: What would you do if you bought KABC (790 AM) and KLOS (95.5 FM)? This came from a friend of mine in the radio industry.What sparked the question was a recent column by Jerry Del Colliano on his InsideMusicMedia.com website in which he wrote of the financial troubles facing Cumulus Media — the owner of KLOS and KABC. What’s next, he asked, for the company that sold “icons like WPLJ/New York for pennies on the dollar and all but evacuated New York and Washington...

As post-LA Marathon runners took over Santa Monica, meet the DJ ‘zombie’ who live-streamed his race

As the clock struck three hours past start time of the L.A. Marathon on Sunday morning, runners who had just breached the finish began slowly walking through a maze of muscle milk and bananas in a post-marathon saunter, perhaps best described as a zombie waddle. One of such post-marathon “zombies” was DJ BL3ND, his face covered by an actual zombie-akin demon mask as he updated his Instagram followers about his 26.2-mile achievement. The Downey-native wears the mask to hide his name and age from ...

This LA Marathon runner is “running” it on crutches this year

While most people ran the L.A. Marathon on two feet, Paul Brestyanszky ran it on four. Two were crutches, though. “I’m hanging on,” he said just minutes before the race began. “I have no choice it’s my 34th.” The legacy runner has ran every L.A. Marathon since the beginning. But when he slipped, fell and fractured his patella bone in his knee, he had to get creative. “I’ve been doing a lot of bench presses,” he said. An exercise he’s hoping will condition his armpits and pecks for the hours of w...
