This half-hour interview show, "L.A. Tonight with Roy Firestone", is hosted by the Emmy Award-winning journalist. Firestone delves into provocative issues shaping the day's news, with guests who have a broad local/global appeal, including celebrities and public figures. In this KCET special, Roy Firestone explores our tabloid culture with guests Harvey Levin, the reigning king of tabloid journalism and founder of TMZ; Steve Edwards, veteran entertainment reporter and anchor for Fox 11's "Good Day LA"; and Mark Geragos, celebrity defense attorney who has represented Michael Jackson, Chris Brown and Winona Ryder. The group discusses the evolution, ethics and drivers behind today's sensational celebrity-driven news climate and explores if Hollywood has taken over substantive issues in today's headlines. During the episode, Edwards notes, "There are no gatekeepers anymore. There are no gates anymore." Levin remarks at one point: "I'm just tired of Paris Hilton. I'm tired of the same old, same old stories. I'm interested in strategic things about Hollywood."
