ATLANTA – 95.5 WSB is proud to announce an unprecedented evolution of its weekday on-air lineup, effective May 1.
95.5 WSB is committed to delivering information and entertainment throughout north Georgia. These changes mark a new era for our legendary news/talk brand.
Chris Chandler has been named the host of Atlanta’s Morning News, airing 5 a.m.-9 a.m., Monday through Friday. Chandler is a longtime afternoon drive anchor who has established himself as one of the most respected voices in local news.
Mark Arum is moving from his current slot in afternoon drive to 9 a.m.-noon. As a seasoned radio and TV host, Arum has made a name for himself as an entertaining and engaging personality on both television and radio.
The Von Haessler Doctrine will move to 4 p.m.-7 p.m., Monday through Friday. Led by Eric Von Haessler and known for its irreverent humor and insightful commentary, The Von Haessler Doctrine is a perfect fit to accompany Atlanta listeners on their afternoon commute.
“95.5 WSB has such a deep roster of talent I am excited to promote Chris to this new role. As part of the process, we took the time to examine the entire station lineup,” said Ken Charles, Director of Branding and Programming for 95.5 WSB. “Additionally, we asked our audience what they expected from WSB. These changes reflect those expectations and leverage our local stars to position the station for the future.”
“It is the honor of a career to step into one of the great heritage radio news programs in the country. Scott Slade can’t be replaced, but I’m committed to maintaining the integrity, consistency, and fairness he brought Atlanta’s Morning News over his legendary run,” said Chris Chandler.
“I couldn’t be more excited about this dynamic change to the weekday lineup,” said Mark Arum. “I’m honored to be handed the keys to what truly is a legacy time slot on 95.5 WSB.”
“After being on in the mornings since 2017, I’m looking forward to the challenge of capturing another audience in afternoons, and I have no doubt listeners will enjoy Mark in the mornings,” said Eric Von Haessler. “I used to come in at 6 a.m., not because I’m a good employee, but because I hate traffic, and not having to deal with that might be what I am most looking forward to.”
“This is an exciting time for WSB to enhance the future with our talented team and research to give our listeners more of what they want with this legendary station,” said Jaleigh Long, Vice President and Market Manager for CMG Atlanta Radio.
Throughout its over 100-year legacy, 95.5 WSB has always evolved to meet the needs of metro Atlanta’s residents by providing comprehensive news coverage and engaging programming. The new on-air lineup will continue to position itself for success and service to the community.
