HRTS to hear Riordan’s views

Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan brings his revitalization pitch to the Hollywood Radio & Television Society Thursday, marking the new mayor’s first speech to an industry group.

Riordan is expected to discuss ways to facilitate production and keep it within the city as well as his goal of improving L.A.’s image and the role the industry can play.

The BevWilshire Hotel luncheon will also mark a changing of the guard at HRTS , as Warren Littlefield, the organization’s (and NBC Entertainment’s) prez, concludes his one-year stint. CBS Entertainment exec VP Peter Tortorici takes over, beginning with the traditional newsmaker luncheon of the four network entertainment chiefs in September.
