Still at home with KTLA, she expands to a new radio show & a TV show By Valerie Milano Hollywood, CA (The Hollywood Times) 4/17/14 - “I’m still at KTLA (Ch.5) as a part-time reporter with a focus on special stories and breaking news, and I am also the new talk show co-host for KFI (640 AM) with Mark Thompson whom I used to work with in KTLA. It’s the Thompson and Espinosa Show!” said the enthusiastic and seasoned reporter Elizabeth Espinosa.

The series is based on the epic Coen Bros. film from a few years back, and indeed, they are involved as executive producers. A (supposedly) true story with only the names changed to protect the innocent. Not sure how FX expected to improve on the original. However, casting Billy Bob Thornton as the homicidal drifter (Lorne Malvowas) was a good start; and at this writing, Thornton is the only reason to come back for seconds on this brutal and less nuanced version of the Oscar winning film.
