'The Truth' About KCRW's Ruth Seymour To Air
In a surprise send-off for KCRW (89.9 FM) general manager Ruth Seymour, the station will air an audio documentary about the revered broadcaster called The Truth About Ruth.
Friday is her last day at the National Public Radio flagship broadcaster, and the documentary will air at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. Station personalities Chris Douridas, Jason Bentley, Anne Litt, Arianna Morgenstern and the next general manager, Jennifer Ferro, will speak about their days working for Seymour.
Seymour single-handedly turned the sleepy Santa Monica College broadcaster into a national cultural force through its music, arts and political programs.
