Your Turn to Deliver the News

Senior managers from TV station ABC7 are coming to listen to San Pedro.

The station is holding an “ABC7 Listens” town hall meeting on June 10 to hear from residents about local issues and stories.

The meeting is one in a series of dialogs between Channel 7 news executives and community leaders throughout Southern California. It is free and open to the public.

Community members will learn how to submit news to ABC7, request sponsorship of non-profit events and access job openings.

During the “open mic” segment, people will have the opportunity to tell the station about newsworthy local issues.

“If we don’t know about it, we can’t consider covering it,” said community relations manager Diane Medina.

The Central San Pedro Neighborhood Council is hosting the town hall meeting.

“We invite the community to come out and learn how to become part of local government and access the newsmedia,” said Central communications officer Joe Donato.

The meeting takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. on June 10 at the Port of Los Angeles High School, 250 W. Fifth St.

Seating is limited and RSVPs are advised. Contact (818) 863-7238 or to reserve a seat.
