DOWNEY - The NBC-4 "Today in L.A." morning show will be taping live segments from 3rd Street Coffee in Downey on Friday, May 10, and the community is invited to take part. Residents will receive free coffee, tea and small lattes, courtesy of "Today in L.A." Taping begins at 5 a.m. City officials are dubbing the event "A Day in Downey" and will use the taping to highlight "some of the unique things that make Downey such a great place to live, work and play," said Councilman Roger Brossmer. Plans are still in their preliminary stages, but possibilities include Downey's police and fire departments, Downey schools, Gangs Out of Downey, the TLC Family Resource Center, the "Healthy Downey" initiative, Downey's Green Task Force, and more. Residents are invited to show up any time between 5-7 a.m. "Today in L.A." is anchored by Alycia Lane and Michael Brownlee, with Elita Loresca doing weather and Sean Murphy on traffic. It won't be the morning show's first time in Downey. It taped live segments from the Columbia Memorial Space Center last year. 3rd Street Coffee is at 8221 3rd St. in Downtown Downey.
