CAPITOL WEEKLY PODCAST: Shaquille O’Neal. The Golden State Killer. Governors Pete Wilson, Gray Davis, Jerry Brown and Gavin Newson. Longtime Associated Press photographer Rich Pedroncelli has photographed them all – and just about every other prominent person to make an appearance in California’s capitol city. Now, after over three decades behind the lens, he is hanging up his press pass.
Capitol Weekly’s John Howard often shared assignments with Pedroncelli when the two worked together at AP; they, along with co-host Tim Foster, reminisced about those days and talked about the changes to the industry. Plus: Who Had the Worst Week in California Politics?
