Pasadena Monthly with Justin Chapman," formerly known as "NewsRap Local with Justin Chapman." The second episode aired Friday, February 24, 2023, and featured a discussion on the USS Pasadena with Mayor Victor Gordo, former Mayor Bill Paparian, and USS Pasadena Foundation President Bill Creedon. The current USS Pasadena, a nuclear attack submarine commissioned in 1989, is expected to be deactivated sometime before 2024 (the first USS Pasadena was a cargo ship from 1918-19; the second USS Pasadena was a light cruiser from 1944-50). They discussed their efforts to have a fourth ship named after Pasadena, including Mayor Gordo's recent conversations with the Secretary of the Navy.
