The other Loh shoe...


Sandra Tsing Loh is taking her axed KCRW commentary across town to rival NPR outlet KPCC. She'll be doing a weekly gig starting in June. Everyone's happy in today's press release:

"We're thrilled to have someone of Sandra's caliber join the KPCC family, said Bill Davis, President and CEO of Southern California Public Radio. "While she's made a lot of people laugh over the years, her essays have considerable depth and insight as well. So, we're pleased that we'll be able to keep her on the air for her fans in southern California."

"KPCC is a wonderful station and the staff is great," said Loh. "I'm very much looking forward to continuing my commentaries there in June, after a short but hopefully restful hiatus."
