Jeff Lemucchi, Office Manager & Artwalk Coordinator

For over 40 years, Jeff Lemucchi has been effectively telling stories behind the microphone and in front of the camera. 

Jeff grew up in Taft, California and began his foray into the Arts by learning to play the trumpet at age ten.  He was awarded a music scholarship to Cal State LA but decided to attend college at Fresno State.  During his first year at CSUF,  Jeff landed a weekend job at a radio station.  Since then, he’s never looked back.

Jeff developed his broadcasting chops as a DJ, program director, operations manager, and news director at several stations along the West Coast and landed in his defining role in 1980 as a news reporter and anchor on a television station in Medford, Oregon.  Jeff’s been known as the news guy on both radio and TV since those early days when he worked with Ann Curry at KTVL-TV.

Jeff is an accomplished voice actor and has performed countless projects for radio and television and numerous other applications.

Jeff came to the Arts Council of Kern in 2016 and enjoys his roles as Office Manager and Artwalk Coordinator.

Jeff lives in Bakersfield with his wife Jan, their cat Gomez and their two Boxers Gino and Pete.
