Matt Holzman Career & Early Life

Matt Holzman Born in Long Beach, California, Holzman attended UC Santa Barbara and started as a board operator at Santa Monica-based KCRW in 1989 or 1990 before creating the station’s underwriting department.

“I remember when Matt fired himself from that job. He wanted to be a radio producer. So he quit and after a few days was rehired, at a much lower salary, to become an audio storyteller,” Ferro wrote. “One of his first stories was about a young man whose kidney disease left him on punishing dialysis three days a week in a five-year-long wait for a donor kidney. That man was Matt. He got a call while he was in line for a ride at Disneyland that some very precious cargo was waiting for him.”

Holzman was the first producer of The Business; He created Matt’s Movies, which made him interview directors and producers; produced and directed Press Play with Madeleine Brand; and launched The Document podcast, which he said was “as if a documentary and a radio show had a baby.”
