Radio & Broadcast

Lydia Liebman has played an active role in radio broadcasting in Boston and New York City. She was the creator, producer and host of Reeds & Deeds II, that aired Sundays 6-8pm on www.wecb.fm. On air for 8 seasons, Reeds & Deeds II featured an eclectic mix of classic recordings, new artist features, underground cuts and exclusive interviews. Liebman could also be heard on the award-winning New England radio station WERS 88.9FM on Tuesday evenings from 10pm-2am hosting the Secret Spot: Boston’s home for R&B, soul and slow jams.

Behind the scenes, Liebman was the General Manager of Internet radio station WECB from 2011-2014 and an Administrative Assistant at WERS.

In 2012, Liebman interned at Sirius XM’s Real Jazz channel under the guidance of jazz broadcast veteran Mark Ruffin.

Since early 2016, Liebman has been guest producing and guest hosting on WBGO's revered program and podcast 'The Checkout'. 

Her experience in radio broadcasting has led to a myriad of opportunities- she has led interviews for JazzBoston with some of the city's most important jazz industry dignitaries and has hosted a myriad of different events including a stage at the 2012 Berklee Beantown Jazz Festival. She has been mentioned and/or featured in articles on AllAboutJazz.com, JazzTimes.com and NPR’s ‘A Blog Supreme’, among others, and was part of an episode about jazz radio on Jazz Video Guy Bret Primack’s ‘The Hang’.
