Host, All Things Considered

Host

Larry Perel is the host of All Things Considered on KCRW.

Larry got his start in radio about 12 years ago as a talk show producer for the nationally syndicated John and Jeff Show. Three weeks in, the hosts took content he suggested for them to use on air, had a mic thrust in his face and voiced those stories during one of the show’s segments. His reports became a regular feature of the program and from there it was off to a variety of radio gigs that included an assistant news editor position at news/talk powerhouse KFI in Los Angeles.

Perel grew up in LA's San Fernando Valley and traffic was something he lived and breathed. Perel got a job with Total Traffic Network in 2012 as an airborne reporter. He flew mornings and afternoons over LA, Orange and Riverside Counties to broadcast reports for various stations. He worked as a news anchor  for KRLA and other stations and as a weekend board-op, filling breaks occasionally at KCRW. He also returned to KFI. This time, as a news anchor.

Before taking on his current role, Larry hosted All Things Considered for the Santa Barbara market from KCRW’s Santa Barbara station.

Previously, Larry was an Executive Producer in the film industry. Over the course of several years, he helped launch the careers of directors like Spike Jonze and Mark Romanek. He produced over 500 productions from Propaganda Films subsidiary Satellite Films.  Those included groundbreaking productions like the “Sabotage” video for the Beastie Boys and high-end productions for the likes of Madonna, REM, Cindy Crawford and Lenny Kravitz among others. His productions garnered 14 MTV Video Music awards, 2 prestigious D&AD awards, 1 Special Interest Video Association award and 2 Grammy nominations for Video of the Year.

Larry is a graduate of University of Oregon with a degree in Communications and Film. He’s married with two kids.
