GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- From graduating with a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin to becoming a professor at SF State in 1970, to being the host of KQED’s Forum, Krasny, the nearly three-decades-long host of KQED’s “Forum,” has had a remarkable career. His last day will be February 15, 2021, according to KQED’s press release.

Krasny started hosting Forum in 1990, and in those 30 years he has covered countless conversations for the residents of the Bay Area. He has interviewed high profile people such as former President Barack Obama, actor Leonardo DiCaprio and famous photographer Annie Leibovitz.

Krasny is also retiring from his full-time teaching career at SF State, where he has been a lecturer in English Literature since 1970.
