Harry Shearer's KCRW Show Canceled
He told fans on Twitter that the station would be making an announcement shortly. We reached out to the Santa Monica public radio station but ...
... were unable to get through.
Shearer didn't rule out the possibility of taking the show to another station. He said via Twitter, though, that it probably wouldn't happen in Southern California:
Le Show will continue, but not on KCRW radio in SoCal.
The program was described this way by the station:
A weekly, hour-long romp through the worlds of media, politics, sports and show business, leavened with an eclectic mix of mysterious music, hosted by Harry Shearer.
[Added at 1:24 p.m.]: KCRW released a statement on the matter. It says his show hasn't been canceled but rather that it "will be moving off the air:"
The station plans to continue to distribute the show for podcast and national syndication, and will continue to support the show on its digital platforms. KCRW will add the program to its 24-hour news stream on Sundays.
