On the morning of February 27, thousands of listeners of radio KJLH 102.3 FM in Los Angeles got more than regular news and the on-air comedy and antics of the popular syndicated Steve Harvey Show.
They also received helpful information about child support services provided by the Los Angeles County Child Support Services Department (CSSD), with live, in-studio, segments over an hour and a half from 7-8:30 a.m.
Al Reyes, L.A. County Division Chief of Communications and Media Services and Supervising Child Support Officer Vera Ashley-Potter of CSSD’s Commerce public contact office were interviewed by KJLH morning host Antoinette Russell.
Among the hot topics covered were how to open a child support case, resolving case issues to end a license suspension and using the information and videos on the CSSD website to educate oneself about the child support process
Owned by music legend Stevie Wonder, KJLH says Mr. Wonder’s vision of “Kindness, Joy, Love and Happiness” is behind its commitment to provide the community with valuable information about services which improve people’s lives. The station’s listeners are largely African American and Hispanic, evenly divided between age groups 25 to 65+ years old.
This was CSSD’s second appearance in morning prime time in the last two years. It is part of the Department’s effort to reach out to parents at large community engagement events sponsored by KJLH. This includes a Fall empowerment summit for fathers and a major women’s health expo at the Long Beach Convention Center.
