Remembering Matt Holzman: KCRW and LA Lose A Big Voice
Matt Holzman found refuge in KCRW around 1990, after leaving a career in the corporate sector, where he worked at the consulting firm Anderson.
He started at KCRW as a board operator and then took what he knew about marketing from his old consulting gig to become the tiny station’s first underwriting director.
In the ensuing decades, he put his stamp on virtually everything the station produced, becoming one of the biggest and most loveable voices and producers in the L.A. public radio world.
Matt died of cancer on Easter, at the age of 56.
