Veteran KCRW deejay and longtime station Music Director Nic Harcourt has announced he will be stepping down as head music man and scaling back his on-air duties. From a press release:

After 10 successful years as host of Morning Becomes Eclectic, KCRW’s signature music program, KCRW Music Director Nic Harcourt is stepping down November 30 to pursue several independent projects. Harcourt will continue as a KCRW deejay, hosting a 3-hour show on Sundays from 6-9 pm.

Harcourt explains his thoughts on his years with KCRW and his hopes for the future of his time on the airwaves at 89.9: “I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to come to work every day and be surrounded by creative and passionate people and I want to keep the connection alive on my Sunday show." He continues, “As a parent of two young children, I believe it’s time for me to explore new career opportunities and expand upon my other activities in movie, television, voice over work, advertising and the Internet.” KCRW General Manager Ruth Seymour says they are actively seeking candidates to fill Harcourt's rather large and influential shoes.
