Santa Cruz, CA (PRWEB) December 15, 2015
Wagner & Winick On the Law, a law-focused talk radio program broadcast from KSCO AM 1080 in Santa Cruz and KVEC AM 920 in San Luis Obispo has signed a national syndication agreement with BizTalk Radio Network. Starting January 2, 2016, the program will broadcast live nationally on the BizTalk Radio Network (http://www.biztalkradio.com) Saturday afternoons from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. (PT). It will also continue to be broadcast live at the same time across the California central coast on KSCO AM 1080 and KVEC AM 920.
The program has received great response during its first year and a half. Co-hosts, Mitchel Winick and Stephen Wagner select a law-related topic each week and invite an expert guest on-air to help discuss the issues. Program topics range across a broad spectrum and have recently included discussions of law and policy surrounding terrorism, the second amendment, police body cams, drones, election law, marijuana law, and data security. However, other less-serious topics have also been covered, such as wine law, legal movie reviews, and the NFL controversy over “DeflateGate”.
“Our program is not intended to provide legal advice,” said Stephen Wagner, a law professor at San Luis Obispo College of Law and trial attorney with Adamski Moroski Madden Cumberland and Green LLP in San Luis Obispo. “Our objective is to select interesting law and public policy topics and then have a meaningful conversation about them. Sometimes our goal is to challenge conventional opinions and other times we merely want to educate our listeners so that they are better informed,” said Wagner.
Wagner’s co-host, Mitchel Winick, is President and Dean of Monterey College of Law and San Luis Obispo College of Law. “It is exciting for us to join the BizTalk Radio Network,” said Winick. “Stephen and I believe that legal issues and public policy are interesting to everyone. You do not need to be a lawyer to realize that the law affects us every single day. Our objective is for listeners to leave our program better informed, more thoughtful, and better prepared to deal with the legal issues that arise in their business and personal lives,” said Winick.
Wagner and Winick have served as co-hosts of Wagner & Winick On the Law since the program began broadcasting in July 2014 on KSCO AM 1080, one of the nation’s leading independent talk radio stations located in Santa Cruz, California. Their introduction to radio broadcasting began as on-air legal commentators for the nationally syndicated The Costa Report.
“Our network has been looking for a law-related program to compliment our existing business and finance programs,” said Scott Miller, Executive Vice President of BizTalk Radio Network. “We think that Wagner & Winick On the Law is going to be a great addition to our network lineup. With their background as law professors, Stephen and Mitchel have a unique ability to break down complex issues in a way that makes them interesting, understandable, and even more importantly . . . entertaining,” said Miller.
