|Thank YOU Los Angeles Press Club......The Randy Economy Show was just named a Finalist in three categories for the upcoming 58th Annual Southern California Media Awards!|
What a thrilling morning!
I woke up today to the news that The Randy Economy Show was named as a Finalist in three different categories for the 58th Annual Southern California Media Awards, including Entertainment Journalist of the Year.
I was also honored to have been nominated in two additional categories for Personality Profile/Interview for my interview with Duf Sundheim who is a candidate for US Senate here in California. In addition, our show was named as a finalist in the Best Use of Sound along with my co-host former Los Angeles City Councilman Dennis P. Zine. Yep. ZineOMite!
Congrats to all of the finalists.
Now, what the hell am I going to wear.....
Here is a note posted on the LA Press Club Website today....
