Chris Daniel

Chris Daniel, afternoon host at Cumulus Media news/talk KMJ-AM/FM Fresno (580/105.9), is stepping away from the radio industry.

“For the past couple of years, I had been considering leaving my position at KMJ, for various reasons, none of which have to do with the people I work with and/or for, or the wonderful people who take the time to listen to the show,” Daniel wrote in a message to listeners. “Now, I have decided to do so. I have resigned my position at KMJ and am moving on to some other things that I’d like to do. I am not going to another station. I guess you could say that I have semi-retired.”

Co-host Philip Teresi will assume afternoons.
