Audacy Announces Launch of “LA's Afternoon News” on KNX News

Rob Archer Joins Karen Adams, Brian Douglas and Charles Feldman to Host Afternoon Show About All That Matters to Southern California

LOS ANGELES, CA – January 27, 2023 – Audacy announces the launch of “LA’s Afternoon News” on KNX News 97.1 FM, the iconic Southern California brand’s all-news afternoon show about the stories that matter to millions of Los Angeles and Orange County residents. The show will be heard weekdays from 2:00 to 7:00 p.m. PT beginning January 30.

Longtime Los Angeles news personality Rob Archer joins co-anchor Karen Adams and veteran traffic and breaking news reporter Brian Douglas to keep Southern Californians up to the minute on the most relevant local and national news of the day. KNX News senior content director Charles Feldman, host of “KNX In Depth,” expands his role and will contribute live interviews and reporting throughout “LA’s Afternoon News” to add depth and context to the stories being covered.

“Rob, Karen, Brian, and Charles are the perfect team to take afternoons on KNX News to the next level in 2023 and beyond,” said Jeff Federman, Regional President, Audacy Southern California. “They bring enormous reporting experience, perspective and humanity to the news that impacts our lives every day.”

A familiar voice on the Los Angeles airwaves since 1999, Archer joined KNX News in 2015. Before moving to afternoons, he anchored the weekend morning news. He also publishes short stories and poetry, and writes and records music.

Adams has anchored afternoons on KNX News since 2019. She joined the station in 2017 as a street reporter covering the presidential inauguration in Washington, several major wildfires and the 2017 Montecito mudslides. Before KNX, the Edward Murrow Award-winning journalist had stints in Washington D.C. and Philadelphia.

Douglas joined KNX in 2016 covering traffic as both an anchor and airborne reporter. He has been telling stories on the radio for about 27 years, with stops in New York, Chicago, and Phoenix, and hosted a national afternoon radio show on the Westwood One Radio Network for seven years.

Feldman is co-host of “KNX In-Depth” and served as the station’s investigative reporter for several years. He was a CNN investigative correspondent in New York and Los Angeles for two decades before joining KNX, and has won several local and national awards for both his radio and television work.

Listeners can tune in to KNX Newsradio (97.1 FM and 1070 AM) in Southern California on air and nationwide on the Audacy app and website. Fans can also connect with the station via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
