Longtime KCRW fixture Nic Harcourt announced this week that he will be leaving the popular public radio station for a position with MTV.

During his time at KCRW, Harcourt has been an influential part of the station’s programing. He has been credited with discovering more than his share of artists, bringing them to the public’s attention.

His work as a music supervisor for TV, film and advertising came about as an extension of his work hosting KCRW’s signature music show Morning Becomes Eclectic. He called the station his radio home for more than a decade, and most recently hosted a Sunday evening music show. His last show was this past Sunday.

“Every music director that has come to KCRW has been able to build on the foundation their predecessors left behind,” said KCRW General Manager Jennifer Ferro. “It meant a lot to have all three of our former music directors on the air here, but we wish him well as he continues to find new ways to share his unique music sensibility.”

KCRW 89.9FM, licensed to Santa Monica College, is National Public Radio’s flagship station for Southern California. The Santa Monica-based nonprofit represents cutting edge radio, presenting an eclectic mix of independent music, news, talk and arts programming.
