Each week, JACOBS MEDIA honors an "innovative" member of our business. This week, they're again singing the praises of KCRW/LOS ANGELES, writing the station, "is one those legendary public media stations, including being one of the charter members of NPR way back in 1970. The call letters stand for College Radio Workshop, and the station is owned by the SANTA MONICA COMMUNITY COLLEGE. But unlike many heritage public radio stations, KCRW has a well-deserved rep for innovation, whether it comes to music, live performance, or technical achievements. This is a brand that doesn’t flinch when it comes to taking a leap."
JACOBS continues, "In addition to airing network programs from NPR, PRI, and others, KCRW is famous for its eclectic music and cultural programming, including classic shows like Morning Becomes Eclectic as well as an emphasis on live performance. KCRW’s President, JENNIFER FERRO, has been with the station nearly two decades, and is charged with providing leadership to an iconic station as it moves into a new three-story state of the art building, while navigating the media disruption and change that is all around us."
