While manning the mic in Los Angeles, he also reported on the classic car community over KNX 1070 Newsradi. Randy won awards with stories from SEMA, the Barrett-Jackson auctions, and about future plans to bring the
DeLorean back as an EV. In 2014, Randy began a classic car podcast called “Talking About Cars with Randy Kerdoon” which continued until 2021, gathering awards of its own along the way. Randy has also MC’d many Southern California car shows including the “Chrysler Performance West” “Spring Fling” in Van Nuys, CA., VTAC, LAPD show in Woodland Hills, CA, the Huntington Beach, CA “Concours de Elegance”, and many others with his podcast co-host Bob Beck.
