Why L.A. public radio is so L.A.

I'm listening the KCRW over the internet right now. And in the little quick traffic a local news cut-ins, they read this story (some paraphrasing):
"The O.C. will be going to rerun heaven starting in February. The once red hot Fox teen melodrama put Orange County in the consciousness of America when if first aired four years ago, but many views tuned out after Marisa died."

Okay. Why is this on any public radio channel? And especially during morning news? "Red hot"? "Rerun heaven"? When did Orange County or any location in the Los Angeles area need to be put into "the consciousness of America"? And are we all supposed to know who Marissa is?

Wow. Clearly some of New York has rubbed off on me.
