Issues & Ideas: air date 08-28-2013

  • There's a new federally-mandated fishery management system on the west coast called Catch Shares -- and it's making both fishermen and environmentalists happy. Marisa Waddell talks with one of each about what Catch Shares mean to local fish and fishermen.
  • Also, Donna Cheek profiles two North San Luis Obispo County groups that improve the lives of cats and dogs, especially through spay and neuter programs.
  • And San Luis Obispo County Library Director Brian Reynolds chats with local author Eric Soderquist and photographer Chris Burkard as they take you on an adventure of California surfing chronicled in their book, The California Surf Project.

As director of programming and content, Marisa Waddell coordinates the radio programming on KCBX and KCBX HD2 and leads efforts to develop content on the KCBX website and other digital platforms. She manages the KCBX on-air staff, including the newsroom (of which she is editor-in-chief), music hosts, continuity announcers and on-air volunteers. Marisa also hosts the Thursday night Americana music program The Road Home, and contributes interviews to the weekly KCBX radio magazine Issues and Ideas and to KCBX News.
