KCRW’s general manager, Ruth Seymour, is a bit of a bitch according to Joe Frank. I sort of suspected it when I heard her doing her best to guilt people into subscribing during their membership drives…she tends to take an accusatory tone. There are better ways to encourage donations, I would think.
I used to listen to Joe Frank’s show a lot, and I think I enjoyed it more than anything else on the air at the time, but thanks to its awkward time slot I guess I never realized until now that it’s been off the air for two years. Joe Frank weighs in on why that is, exactly. And Ruth is at the heart of it.
Between Joe Frank’s secret firing and the whole Sandra Tsing Loh debacle, KCRW is turning into the soap opera of Los Angeles’ airwaves!
