KCRW Drop Halloran

(PR) [CMJ's News Editor sent over this disturbing news for indie fans] After 15 years of hosting Brave New World on KCRW, Tricia Halloran has left the station in a decision she claims wasn't her own, but is optimistic about future plans. She will be taking a brief hiatus from radio, and then will be "exploring various opportunities" while continuing her full-time position as director of A&R and the head of music supervision for Hum Music, which provides the soundtrack for Saturn and Honda commercials, as well as ABC's Men In Trees.

"It wasn't my decision and I can't really comment on their rationale, but I am very pleased with the work I've been able to do there for the last 15 years," Halloran says. "Change is good, and I hope the new rookies on KCRW will enjoy the opportunity to be authentic and share their love of good music as much as I have."

Brave New World explored many below the radar artists that have since taken on the mainstream. Through her many years hosting the show, Halloran has seen the likes of Pete Yorn, David Gray and the Eels blossom. "Career artists with integrity like these make my job so fulfilling," she says, citing All Smiles, Oliver Future and Everybody Else as a few artists she currently has high hopes for.
