“KCRW was looking for someone who could shine a bright light on this sprawling, diverse and vitally important region of Southern California, and we are happy to have Gustavo as a guide,” says Gary Scott, news program director at KCRW. “Gustavo is smart, he’s dogged, he’s funny… and he’s occasionally outrageous – but he’s more passionate and plugged in than just about anyone you’ll ever meet.”
