Merced city's 'Conversations' to feature Relay for Life and homelessness on KYOS

The city of Merced said the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, homelessness in Merced and the upcoming Merced County Fair are among the topics featured this week on Community Conversations, a public service program on KYOS.

The show focuses on community, education and government news affecting residents throughout Merced County. It airs on KYOS, 1480 AM, at 7 p.m. Saturday and at 3 p.m. Sunday.

Other "Conversations" set to air include a Merced woman who had two sons murdered within one year, two Merced College students who will be graduating and heading to UC Merced and Lee Andersen relating his experiences of running in this year’s Boston Marathon.

The hour-long show focuses on news that has gone unnoticed or underreported.

The show is hosted by Nathan Quevedo, public information officer for the Merced County Office of Education, and engineered by Rick McMillion of KYOS. The show is produced by MCOE, the City of Merced Public Information Office and Roger Wood, in association with UC Merced and the County of Merced.
