Tess Vigeland Fills In for A Martinez

Having manned the post-game phones on ESPN 710 AM all miserable Lakers season long, no one deserves a vacation more than A Martinez. He’s off today through the 20th of May and filling in for him at the KPCC Take Two end is Tess Vigeland (pictured).

There aren’t too many people who jump back and forth between LA’s two FM public radio stations, but the talented Vigeland is one of them. She was just on KCRW Tuesday hosting To The Point and has also stepped in recently a few times on the Santa Monica NPR station’s Which Way LA. Her last prior fill-in stint on Take Two was a few months ago.

“It’s probably fairly rare,” she tells FishbowlLA this morning via email of the KPCC-KCRW skein. “I’m grateful to both stations for lending me the microphone!”

And what is on Alex Cohen-Tess Vigeland show number one today? “We’re still getting the program together, and all this may change by air time,” she says, “but we’re hoping to be talking about the two newly-discovered slush funds in the LA Parks and Transportation departments… We’ll also look at Kamala Harris‘ lawsuit against JP Morgan over debt collection practices; the new documentary about the family behind The Source restaurant in WeHo; the new Marine Corps ad campaign aimed at Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders.”

“And we’re going to bid a fond farewell to two LA landmarks – Hollywood Park and the Santa Monica Norm’s.” Take Two airs weekdays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. PT.
