September 27, 2012

KOCT is proud to begin his new season of Journalist Roundtable on August 2nd, 2012 with two live back to back programs from 7pm to 9pm on KOCT Channel 18. From 7pm to 8pm, the first show will explore 4 unique topics: Our first guest, Wayne Knight from Tri City Medical Center, will be discussing the selection of Tri City to operate a  Shared Savings Accountable Care Organization (ACO) for Medicare patients. The ACO program is part of  the Affordable Care Act recently upheld by the U.S Supreme Court. Next, J. Robert Shaffer, an Oceanside Author, will  introduce his recent book “Samoa, a Historical Novel”. Oceanside has one of the highest populations of pacific islanders in the nation. Our third guest is Sandra Fichter with the Veteran Associations of North County to talk about their Career Transition Assistance Program (CTAP). This program helps returning veterans to enter the civilian job market. Finally, our fourth guest will be Torgen Johnson, an activist involved in the movement to shut down San Onofre Generating Station. The Second show will air live from 8pm to 9pm and will mark the start of KOCT 2012 Election Season. The two candidates for the 76th Assembly District Rocky Chavez and Sherry Hodges will be interviewed about their prospective positions and goals should they be elected to this State Office.
