Audacy Welcomes Andy Chanley as Afternoon Drive Host and Music Director of 93XRT in Chicago

CHICAGO, IL – February 21, 2024 Audacy announces the addition of Andy Chanley as Afternoon Drive Host and Music Director of 93XRT (WXRT-FM) in Chicago beginning March 11. Chanley will be heard weekdays from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. CT.

“Andy Chanley is one of the most respected in the business and will be a tremendous addition to the XRT team,” said Laura Duncan, Brand Manager, 93XRT. “His passion for music and reverence for WXRT, the on-air team, and the city of Chicago makes Andy the perfect fit.”  

“As an Indiana kid, being in Chicago was always thrilling — partly because I could hear bands like R.E.M., Big Star and Velvet Underground on FM radio for the first time,” said Chanley. “Even before I got into radio, XRT was the gold standard to me, and that opinion has never faded. I know what XRT means to folks here and around the world, and I’m honored to finally be a part of it. I can’t wait to get back to my friends and family!” 

Chanley most recently hosted afternoons at KCSN in Los Angeles. He returns to the Midwest after over two decades on the West Coast, including ten years at The Sound (KSWD-FM) in Los Angeles. 

The station subsequently announces current afternoon host Ryan Arnold will move back to nights and be heard weekdays from 7:00 p.m to 12:00 a.m. CT. Current night host Emma Mac will move to weekends.

Listeners can tune in to 93XRT (WXRT-FM) in Chicago on air and nationwide on the Audacy app and website. Fans can also connect with the station via X, Facebook and Instagram.
