Watch: The Week in Review - Musso & Frank Fallout, VC Check Writing, Pandemic Pivot

We launched in January with a mission to report on stories that impact the Los Angeles startup and technology communities. Now, we're taking our reporting to video.


We'll focus on three key projects:

  • Our Weekly News Briefing, which you can check out above, is our 5-10 min rundown of key dot.LA stories and general developments from the L.A. tech, media and startup space.
  • The dot.LA Daily Digest will get you caught up quickly on stories each day. We'll arm you with breaking news, events and information. Look for it at the end of each day on Instagram, YouTube and elsewhere.
  • We'll also be rolling out regular dot.LA exclusive interviews and event recaps with influential change-makers and dot.LA reporters.
Watch for that programming on our website, on our YouTube, Instagram and Facebook. We've brought on Chief Host & Correspondent Kelly O'Grady to lead these efforts. Follow her on Instagram for updates!
