Nic Harcourt has announced that he'll step down as KCRW's Music Director and host of the popular show Morning Becomes Eclectic. Is he falling on the sword? Are their lurid details behind the ending of his run on a legendary show? Not bloody likely.
“As a parent of two young children, I believe it’s time for me to explore new career opportunities and expand upon my other activities in movie, television, voice over work, advertising and the Internet,” said Nic.
“Since I arrived here, I’ve fulfilled many of my dreams as a music lover, meeting and interviewing legends like Neil Young, Paul McCartney, Willie Nelson and Cat Stevens (Yusuf). I’ve also been able to set the stage for future stars, introducing artists like Coldplay, Damien Rice, Dido and Norah Jones on KCRW’s airwaves."
He'll end his run on November 30th, but will stay on his Sunday night show. KCRW’s General Manager Ruth Seymour said that they'll have a hard time replacing Nic.
“Nic is a hard act to follow. We are now in the process of choosing a new Music Director. We have been looking at potential candidates with an eye toward announcing a choice in the new few weeks.”
