Meet Scott! He’s been a KCRW volunteer for over a year and we’re thrilled he’s here to help! He made a great impression at his first volunteering event and was offered a front desk shift. At the front desk, Scott is the best volunteer to have help you over the phone for his courtesy and patience. We’ve gotten so many emails or calls from members saying how wonderful Scott is. You can’t beat that! Get to know him a little better…
