"Oprah" Comes to Los Feliz's John Marshall High
As part of "No Phone Zone Day," Friday's live episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" will include segments from five "viewing parties" across the country, including here in Los Angeles. "Oprah" show correspondent Lisa Ling will host the L.A. segment at John Marshall High School, where "American Idol" winner Kris Allen and finalist Allison Iraheta will appear. (Oprah herself won't be in Los Angeles.)
Winfrey is joining with traffic safety organizations, law enforcement agencies, federal and state transportation and highway safety offices, advocacy groups and others to promote the national "No Phone Zone Day" -- which asks motorists to simply put down the phone when they're behind the wheel.
