A disc jockey who has been a fixture of the Los Angeles music scene for more than a decade is moving to MTV, the public radio station that broadcasts his show announced.
“Former KCRW Music Director Nic Harcourt has decided to leave the Los Angeles public radio station to focus his energy on a full-time position as music supervisor in residence at MTV,” KCRW said in a statement. “He will helm music supervision for select shows during the coming year.”
According to the statement, Harcourt’s “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 from 6 to 9 p.m. His last show was this past Sunday.”
Jason Bentley has succeeded Harcourt as KCRW’s music director and host of “Morning Becomes Eclectic,” the station said.
