Insight: King Fire Update / Elk Grove Bid for MLS / Ryan Lillis on Sac's MLS Bid / Italian Film Fest / Exquisite Corps


CalFire’s big concern – the King fire near Pollock Pines. We’ll get an update on the effort to hold it back from crossing Highway 50. 

Elk Grove is one of two proposed sites for a Major League Soccer team bid; MLS executives will visit the region beginning tomorrow. We’ll speak with Elk Grove’s Vice Mayor about the bid for a pro-soccer team and the city's expanding school district.

A longtime tradition in Sacramento is the Italian Film Festival and this year there are six movies in the six-month long series. Bob Masullo is the festival organizer – he joins us to talk about the film Certified Copy and we’re popping popcorn right now.

Plus … the Sacramento trio Exquisite Corps is ready to release its second album … Bryan Valenzuela stops by to share some of the music.
