Looks like President Obama will be swinging through parts of Eagle Rock and Highland Park on Friday as part of a two-day visit to Los Angeles that begins this afternoon. In between fundraisers and other appearances, the President is scheduled to be interviewed on Friday morning in the Highland Park garage studio of comedian Marc Maron for his WTF With Marc Maron podcast, according A.V. Club.
Dominic Patten of Deadline Hollywood says the White House requested a spot on the program, which has been downloaded more than 100 million times, for the President:
The plan is that before Obama jumps on Air Force One on June 19 to head up to San Fran for more Democratic Party fundraisers, the pop culture-conscious POTUS will swing by the comedian’s garage studio in the morning for a just over one-hour sit-down. The White House reached out to Maron’s team a couple of weeks back to set up the interview, sources tell me. The commercial-free podcast with the President is set to be posted online June 22.
An LAPD traffic advisory distributed by the Daily News and other news sites says that motorists should avoid the following areas on Friday (June 19):
- Ventura (134) Freeway and Colorado Boulevard between 8 a.m. and noon
- Colorado Boulevard and Figueroa Street between 8 a.m. and noon
- York Boulevard and Avenue 51 between 9 a.m. and noon
- Yosemite Drive and Avenue 56 between 9 a.m. and noon
Is the President going to visit Occidental College in Eagle Rock after the WTF interview or pick up some vegan donuts and an horchatta latte on York? Stay tuned.
