Nic Harcourt may have stepped down as the Music Director at KCRW only last week, but his job has already been filled.
"KCRW announces the appointment of Jason Bentley as Music Director and host of Morning Becomes Eclectic, effective December 1. Bentley will leave his current evening time slot to take over KCRW’s signature music program from 9am to noon PST, Monday through Friday," reads the announcemment from KCRW.
Bentley has been affiliated with station for a long time, starting on the phones in high school, and working his way up through the ranks. He's been with the station for over 16 years time (not continuous, but overall). That means reach for that brass ring, baby! Today's phone guy can be tomorrow's ruler of the world.
Bentley's apparently no slouch either. In addition to his time at KCRW he's done a lot of other high level work:
"Bentley is widely respected, not just as a KCRW DJ but as a Music Supervisor for film (“The Matrix” soundtracks), a music executive (co-founder of the Quango Music Group and an A&R exec at Madonna's Maverick imprint) and as a music producer and remixer in his own right. "
