PBS SoCal to challenge KCET in Los Angeles programming

The Los Angeles Business Journal (no link available) is reporting that KOCE soon will begin programming for Los Angeles audiences, taking on KCET, which went independent from PBS in January. "We need to convince people in L.A. and surrounding regions that we're not just concerned about Orange County," PBS SoCal/KOCE President Mel Rogers told the publication. The station is renaming its public affairs show Inside OC as SoCal Insider for the new season in January. "The move will allow KOCE to grow its audience without incurring the production costs of an entirely new program," the Journal notes.
