Ruth Seymour, Warren Olney Recall the Origins of Which Way L.A.?

A few day into the ’92 riots, KCRW and Warren Olney hosted a town forum on the issue. That single show grew into the award-winning public affairs program Which Way L.A.?

Twenty years after that first broadcast, former general manager Ruth Seymour, WWLA‘s founding producer Sarah Spitz, and host Olney sat down with Steve Chiotakis to commemorate the show’s beginnings.

Recalls Seymour, “What Warren didn’t know at the time was that he was actually auditioning. He had no idea about this because we had not made any announcement. We came to the conclusion that we had to respond [to the riots.] We were going to do a one hour show for one month only through June. And we had absolutely not a penny to do this program on. I scraped up enough money to pay a host, but I didn’t have any more than that.”

“Did I get paid?” teased Olney.

Steve Chiotakis Joins KCRW

Marketplace Morning Report host Steve Chiotakis will be jumping ship to KCRW to become the new local broadcaster during All Things Considered. Chiotakis will helm KCRW’s afternoon news coverage during the 3-7 shift.

“KCRW is a natural fit for me,” says Chiotakis in a release. “It’s home to terrific and talented people. It’s an LA institution with a world-class sensibility. I’m excited about what’s possible and can’t wait to get to work telling the stories of this great city.”

Chiotakis is an Edward R Murrow Award winner for news writing. He’s scheduled to start his new gig at the end of this month.

Jeremy Hobson To Host Marketplace Morning Report

After three months as an interim host, Jeremy Hobson has proven himself worthy of a full-time role with Marketplace Morning Report.  Hobson will now host American Public Media’s morning business newscast alongside Steve Chiotakis and be heard by over five million listeners on 400 public radio stations each week.  Hobson is excited to shed the interim tag and continue to inform audiences on global business affairs.

I’m thrilled at the opportunity to host the Marketplace Morning Report.  The show’s mission — breaking down the complex business stories of the day so we can actually understand them — is more important now than it has ever been.  I’ve been in public radio since I was nine years old, and Marketplace is everything I’ve always loved about this unique medium.  It’s timely, insightful, educational, and most importantly, fun to listen to.  It’s an honor to help make it what it is each morning.

Hobson has been with American Public Media since 2007 and reported for Marketplace Morning Report from both the New York and D.C. bureaus.  Prior to his time at American Public Media, Hobson has done reporting and producing at NPR and worked for Boston’s WBUR.

It’s official. Jeremy Hobson is the new host of American Public Media‘s “Marketplace Morning Report,” where he’ll be joining Steve Chiotakis. Hobson had been hosting the show in an unofficial capacity since October 2010, with the departure of Bill Radke. Prior to stepping in for Radke, Hobson had worked as a reporter for Marketplace in New York and D.C. since 2007, filing stories and features on Wall Street’s greater impact on Main Street.

Marketplace’s morning newscast is broadcast to over 400 stations throughout the country and reaches 5 million listeners.
