It would be extrordinary for the LA City Council to reject Mayor Villaraigosa's pick of Deputy Chief Charlie Beck to head the department. Here, KPCC's Frank Stoltze joins Off-Ramp host John Rabe at the official announcement. We've also included Beck's entire opening remarks as the second piece of audio.

In the slideshow below, reporters flock from far and wide to speak into KPCC's magical, mystical microphone...and to cover the LAPD Chief-in-waiting Charlie Beck's first press conference.
