4802

WQED's studio at 4802 Fifth Avenue in Oakland is the central point for a live and lively conversation about the events making up the news of the week. Host Chris Moore is joined by regular panelists Lynn Cullen, Valerie McDonald Roberts, Bill Green and Heather Heidelbaugh.

Description:

Chris Moore and our panel of 4802 regulars discuss topics including the verdict in the Jordan Miles case as well as a statement made by Mayor Bill Peduto declaring his desire to create a policy to discipline officers found in the wrong in civil trials. Officers Eric Kelly, Paul Sciullo and Stephen Mayhle will be remember on the fifth anniversary of their death and McCandless woman accused of drowning her children will be discussed. They’ll talk about decision by the Supreme Court to strike down limits in federal law on aggregate campaign contributions that individual donors can give candidates along with the recent trouble for General Motors. And, ending on a lighter note, David Letterman’s successor will be debated.
