As we first reported in a ‘Breaking News’ email earlier today, longtime KNX/Los Angeles Director of News and Programming Andy Ludlum has exited the heritage SoCal all-newser. Ludlum (pictured), who joined CBS Radio/Los Angeles in 1998 and has worked for both KNX and one-time CBS Radio clustermate KFWB during his tenure, sports a resume of more than 35 years of radio and TV news experience, including stints in San Jose, Seattle and Kansas City before moving to L.A. in the mid-1990s. “We parted ways with Andy last night (9/22),” CBS Radio/Los Angeles VP and Market Manager Dan Kearney told NTS MediaOnline Today. “We are starting a nationwide search for a new KNX Program Director immediately.” Kearney also noted that KNX News Director Julie Chin will serve as interim PD of the station until the opening is permanently filled.
