Zarian to host talk on columnist
The ongoing contention over Glendale News-Press columnist Dan Kimber will be the subject of a dialogue Thursday on “The Larry Zarian Show.”
Columnist Patrick Azadian and Glendale resident and Forum page writer Patrick Grant will sit down to discuss the social implications of the back-and-forth that has played out in the News-Press' Forum section for more than a month since Kimber's column on the Armenian Youth Federation and assimilation.
Kimber, who has already appeared on Zarian's show to explain his viewpoint, has found himself at the center of controversy over his comments on the federation's bylaws.
The show airs at 7 p.m. Thursday on Channel 280. The call-in number is (818) 547-3668.
Republicans to host former radio host
Xavier Hermosillo, former KABC and KMPC radio talk show host, is scheduled to address the Glendale Burbank Republican Assembly tonight at a meeting at Clancy's Crab Boiler.
Hermosillo, who also served two terms as the California chairman of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly and co-director of the Western White House Advance Team for George H.W. Bush, will discuss rejuvenating the GOP by “mining for natural Republicans — Latinos, Asians, Armenians and other genuine Americans — and not defaulting them to the Democrats,” according to an announcement from the club.
The event starts at 7:30 p.m., with an optional $20 dinner beginning at 7 p.m. Clancy's is at 219 N. Central Ave.
