Longtime L.A. Times Journalist John Horn Exits For KPCC Radio Hosting Gig

Longtime Los Angeles Times film reporter John Horn is leaving the newspaper to host public radio station KPCC’s upcoming arts and entertainment program.

Horn has been the lead film writer at the L.A. Times since 2002 and regularly moderates live events at the Academy, the Telluride Film Festival, the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and “The Envelope” screening series. He previously wrote for Newsweek and the Associated Press and was an editor at Premiere.

KPCC says this is its most ambitious programming effort since the launch of “Take Two” in 2012.

As host of the untitled program, Horn will anchor coverage that will serve as a daily chronicle of creativity and culture in Los Angeles.

The station says the program will profile original thinkers, movers and shakers and new ways of doing business across the spectrum of film, TV, performing arts, music and fine art in a conversational, news-driven approach.

Horn is also a regular contributor to “The Business” on KCRW and has been a guest on KPCC on “Take Two” and “AirTalk.”

KPCC says this is the first of five positions on the entertainment program.

Horn starts in June, with the daily program beginning this fall.
