Lauren Tyler has her own blend of style and personality which grows on you to a point that you’re not quite sure what you did before you met her. Does anyone around here remember what KCRW was like before Lauren came to the office? She’s got a real spark about her, with all the warmth, sass, and skepticism you can hope for and appreciate.
Where did you grow up and …

Meet Nick Lopez! I first met Nick at one of our many events at the street team table, he was just a really level-headed chill dude. The more I talked to Nick the more I realized he was the type of person that really epitomizes the KCRW way of life… relaxed, easy going, in tune with nature and his surroundings, and helpful as ever. …

From Rachel Reynolds, Music Publicity Director:
Jim came to my rescue last year when I was looking for some help on a project requiring someone who was tech savvy, had great attention to detail and, most of all, a curious spirit with good instincts. I found all of that in Jim. He was 100% invested from the day he started and has provided a tremendous amount …

World, meet Kendall Antron. If you don’t know him yet, you soon will. Kendall is a rising star of musical talent. He showed up as a volunteer one day and he’s been considered KCRW family ever since. He’s reliable, personable, enthusiastic, a stylish dresser, a great musician, and an all around great guy (he still gets this honor even though he was 5 minutes late …

maggie 3

I’ve been working with Maggie Marion in the newsroom for almost a year now. She’s one of the most dedicated volunteers I’ve seen at KCRW. Her exuberant personality helps relieve some of the deadline-induced stress of the newsroom, and she also knows about all the web series worth watching. She should be volunteer of the century, but KCRW won’t let me nominate her for that, …

This October it is an honor to recognize Andrew Steely. Sure, you might say, hey.. Andrew is a staff member, not a volunteer. What gives? To which I would reply… yes you’re right, he’s a fantastic employee but he is ALSO a superstar volunteer… in your face! Honestly though, Andrew is one of the most humble, down to earth, fun loving dudes you’ll find. Always helpful, …

If you’ve spent any time here at KCRW you’ve probably worked with Shawniece Swain and seen her beaming, smiling face and felt her outgoing personality and warmth. I honestly see her everywhere… out at KCRW events, running the food crew during the membership drive, in studio with the DJ’s. — you could even say she embodies the spirit of the damn place!
Where did you grow up …

Aug_volOfMonth

It’s actually a happy coincidence that KCRW volunteer August Larson happened to be picked August Volunteer of the Month. Right? Well let me tell you a little something about August: he’s a real stand-up guy. He’s always jumping into new projects and signing up to cover music shows whenever openings pop up. You can tell he is a big KCRW fan.. he’s got the …
