Andy Chanley Joins KCSN/KSBR Los Angeles For Afternoons

88.5 FM KCSN Northridge KSBR Mission Viejo Los AngelesFormer “100.3 The Sound” KSWD Los Angeles morning host Andy Chanley is joining AAA “The New 88.5” KCSN Northridge/KSBR Mission Viejo as afternoon host.

Chanley will take the afternoon slot hosted by Co-General Manager/Program Director Sky Daniels. Chanley hosted middays, afternoons, and mornings during his tenure at KSWD. He also was part of the staff at Alternative “Y107” KLYY/KSYY/KVYY and AAA “Channel 103.1” KACD/KBCD in Los Angeles. He previously spent a few weeks guest hosting afternoons at KCSN/KSBR earlier this year.

88.5 FM/Los Angeles, Southern California’s leading Triple-A (adult album alternative) format radio station, is adding Andy Chanley to its afternoon drive spot.

Chanley, who most recently helmed mornings at 100.3 FM The Sound/Los Angeles, is joining 88.5 FM to serve as the music host from 3 to 7 p.m.

“As 88.5 FM continues its rapid growth, I knew my responsibilities as general manager and program director would intensify,” said Sky Daniels, the station’s general manager and program director. “Looking for my replacement on-air required finding someone with passion, great knowledge of the Triple-A format and relentless drive. Andy has been a stalwart at Los Angeles music discovery stations such as 100.3 The Sound, KCAD Channel 103.1 and Y107 (KLYY). He understands, and welcomes, the challenge of providing a deeper musical experience to listeners.”

Chanley said he was looking forward to his new job.

“Years ago, I added my name to the list of Paul McCartney, Tom Petty and countless others who’ve realized that Sky is doing something truly special at 88.5 FM,” he said. “Now, I get to add my name to the tremendous staff he’s put together here. I’m overjoyed, and this station sounds so good. Don’t tell Sky, but I’d do this for free … if free bought pull-ups.”

In addition to his extensive resume on radio, Chanley is a voiceover actor, having worked on campaigns for companies, including Safeway, Subway and McDonald’s. He also contributes to the celebrated “Your Artificial Friends” podcast.

88.5 FM offers a 24-hour, commercial-free blend of rock, alternative, soul, blues and Americana. It features a wide range of artists, such as U2, Bruce Springsteen, Jack White, Arcade Fire, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Alabama Shakes, The War on Drugs, The National, Sheryl Crow, Bob Marley and David Bowie. The station’s Triple A programming also is available on the KCSN and KSBR 88.5 HD1 channels, via the 88.5 app, and online at www.885FM.org.

  1. Congrats, Andy!!! You are one of the nicest guys I know, and for myself as a PROUD member of 88.5FM and a true believer of new music – you are the right choice to take over from Sky Daniels. I’ll be listening each afternoon from OC to South Bay LA!! Joe G
