Josh Rubenstein made his name on Los Angeles Television reporting news and presenting weather for KCBS/KCAL. Now, as the LAPD’s Public Information Director, he uses his television knowledge in the presentation for body-cam videos in which there are questions of possible abuse of power. For his first sit-down interview about his former and new career ,Josh discusses why the career switch and how these videos are prepared for use on television. From some quarters they’ve drawn criticism and he addresses that as well.
On October 1st, 2017 Carrie Weidenkeller and her 24-year-old daughter Marissa Narvaez went to Las Vegas for the big Route 91 Country Music Festival. As music was blasting from speakers on stage outside the Mandalay Bay Hotel bullets suddenly showered down on them wounding the two women. 422 others were injured by gunfire. 58 people were killed. Many more were hurt trying to escape.
This October 1st will be the one-year anniversary of the massacre. But before that a very important deadline is quickly approaching for those who were at the concert. In this segment, for the first time on any media, the two women talk about the horror they experienced and the benefits that helped them.
In this segment Kevin Schiller, the Clark County Assistant manager and Anita Ahuja from the California Victim Compensation Board discuss the benefits, deadlines and why anyone who went to that concert -hurt or not - should be applying.
