On this episode of the I Heart Costa Mesa show, we interview Bradley Zint, Reporter for The Daily Pilot newspaper, about his eight years spent covering Costa Mesa and its surrounding communities. We also talk about his perspectives on the City of Costa Mesa, how he's seen it change since he first started at the paper in 2010 - and, of course, we ask him the rapid-fire, Fast Final Fives! And with Brad just today announcing he is leaving the newspaper, this is one special edition of the podcast you don't want to miss...
