Celebrities, media personalities, stakeholders and friends came out to the launch party of public radio’s highly anticipated new show, “Reality Check Live” with Cary Harrison on Tuesday, April 17, at Revolver Video Bar in West Hollywood. Iconic actress and singer, Nichelle Nichols, who played Star Trek’s Lieutenant Uhura, was accompanied by producer and actress Angelique Fawcette at the event. Actors Leslie Jordan, Ronnie Kroell and Jason Stuart joined KPFK’s Christine Blosdale, GoWeHo’s Laurie Schenden, The Lavender Effect’s Andy Sacher, Brave New Hollywood’s Henrick Vartanian and over one-hundred guests to celebrate Harrison’s new show that promises to “prevent truth decay.”

Revolver Video Bar, West Hollywood’s legendary standard, hosted the event with complimentary Summer Water rose wine courtesy of WINC, hors d’oeuvres from Continental Kitchen (West Hollywood + Beverly Hills) and Kung Pao Bistro (West Hollywood). Los Angeles Public Information Officer Robert Kalonian presented Harrison with a commendation from LA County Assessor, Jeffrey Prang’s office. But it was the arrival of Nichelle Nichols, that wowed the audience. The highlight of the night was when Harrison read her a personal note from Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who had been scheduled to attend, but was called to Washington DC at the last minute. Congresswoman congratulated Harrison on the launch of his show and wished her good friend, Nichelle Nichols, a happy birthday.

Reality Check Live airs on KPFK 90.7FM on Wednesdays at 7:30PM and is also available on iTunes, Google Play, iHeartRadio and Stitcher. You can also catch the podcast on www.RealityCheckLive.org
