Host/KCRW Staff, Greater LA

Steve Chiotakis hosts KCRW's "Greater LA," a daily show that brings you a little closer to the places and people of this giant, often-unwieldy region that millions call home.

He joined KCRW in early 2012 as afternoon drive anchor, after hosting the nationally-syndicated Marketplace Morning Report, produced by American Public Media.

Chiotakis' radio career began after finishing high school. He graduated from the University of Alabama at Birmingham with a degree in Communications Studies/Journalism. Through three decades on-the-air - in commercial and TV, and public radio - he's informed the masses in local markets, and with reports that have run nationally and globally.

He has experience serving as News Anchor, Reporter and News Director. His reporting has been featured on NPR, Marketplace, ABC, NBC, CBS, the CBC, and the BBC.

Chiotakis has been honored dozens of times by the Associated Press for Best Anchor and Reporter, by Public Radio News Directors, Incorporated with awards for feature reporting, writing and show production. He's taken home several trophies by the LA Press Club as Best Radio Anchor in Southern California and Best Feature.

He's also a recipient of a prestigious national Edward R. Murrow Award for writing.
