Lara Scott can be heard on the radio in Southern California every weekday from 10a—3p on K-EARTH 101.
Born in Southwest Florida, Lara headed to Oregon after high school. She got into radio in Bend, Oregon, after calling a local station on a dare from a friend, and then continued her broadcasting career in Portland. After graduating with a B.S. in Philosophy from Portland State University, she moved to San Francisco to become the music director and nighttime air personality at KZQZ 95.7. She then spent almost seven years as the midday host at KYSR Star 98.7 in Los Angeles, followed by almost a decade in mornings and middays at KFSH 95.9 The Fish.
Her passion for preservation and history led her to Old Town Music Hall in El Segundo, a historic theatre that shows classic films on the big screen every weekend, and she now serves on their advisory board. The theatre was also featured in her first book, From the Corner of Hollywood and diVine: Your Guide to 30 Old Hollywood-Inspired Spots in Southern California. She is the co-host, along with Oscar-winning filmmaker James Moll, of the Classic Movie Recall podcast, and reviews films from the Golden Age of Hollywood every week. Lara also co-hosts the West of Broadway podcast, which celebrates musical theatre in Los Angeles.
Lara was a 2008 President’s Volunteer Service Award winner, which was presented by recording artist Michael W. Smith on behalf of President George W. Bush for her charity work. In her free time, she can be found hanging out with her young son and daughter, snowboarding, horseback riding, shopping at vintage and thrift stores, at yoga class, and attending lots of concerts and films. She is also a certified family herbalist and aromatherapist.
