Host of 'Liza Richardson'
Liza Richardson has hosted and produced a radio show on KCRW since 1991 and currently anchors Saturday nights from 8 to 10pm.
An assiduous independent music supervisor for ads, films and TV shows, Richardson's credits include the first handful of iPod spots, films Y Tu Mama También (which was nominated for a Grammy), Curious George, Lords of Dogtown, Surf's Up, The Kids Are All Right and Hotel Transylvania, among many others.
Richardson music supervised all five seasons of Friday Night Lights and currently helms Parenthood, Hawaii Five-0 and The Following. She was named one of 2010's Women of Impact by Variety and was recognized by her peers, the Guild of Music Supervisors, as 2011's TV Music Supervisor of the Year.
Liza Richardson is from Phoenix, Arizona and holds a BFA in Theater and Dance from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. Her radio career started at a Texas community station. Fellow Texan Chris Douridas read an article about her and he gave her a show on KERA in Dallas. When Douridas became KCRW's Music Director, Richardson was the first person he hired.
Richardson is a musical chameleon who has hosted a number of specialty shows on KCRW's airwaves in the past, from the groundbreaking mix of spoken word and music in Man in the Moon to the alt-country focused Rancho Loco and the up tempo dance music show The Drop. Liza has a diverse music vocabulary, and her current show is a wild mix of all genres, featuring many underground and limited releases.
