Los Angeles’ Jason Bentley is best known for his renowned, soothing voice, well-curated mixes, and an ear for music that has been beloved for over a decade on Santa Monica’s KCRW, most notably as the host for Morning Becomes Eclectic.
Today, KCRW announces that Bentley will finish his 10-term as both director and host, and last show on MBE will be August 30, 2019, but Bentley will continue to host his popular Saturday-night global electronic mix show, Metropolis.
“It’s been the honor of a lifetime to serve this community, working closely with musicians and local arts institutions, and helping shape the sound of the greatest radio station on Earth,” comments Bentley. “Now, I’m excited to explore new directions and make way for KCRW’s continued success.”
“Every Music Director at KCRW has made their lasting mark on KCRW and Jason is no different. His radio-perfect voice and impeccable music taste has inspired so many. Jason’s attention to detail and programming instinct made a true impact here. I know he leaves KCRW in a better place and am excited to see what else he does next,” states KCRW President Jennifer Ferro.
