BRIEFLY : Radio: Olney to Speak at Benefit for Counseling Center

Broadcast journalist Warren Olney will be honored next month at a fund-raising dinner for the Southern California Counseling Center in April.

Olney, the host of "Which Way L.A.?" on radio station KCRW, will be presented with a 1995 Achievement Award at the center's "We're Betting on L.A." dinner-banquet.

"We decided to honor Warren because he's reaching out to the community in the same way that SCCC has done for so many years," said Sherry Weinman, event chairwoman.

The SCCC offers psychological counseling to low-income individuals and families.

Olney, a veteran news reporter at Los Angeles television stations, has been host of the radio show since its inception after the 1992 L.A. riots.
