Dan Avey is a radio personality and newscaster who had worked for over 30 years in the Los Angeles area and has received more than 30 major journalism awards including 15 Golden Mikes. Avey started his radio career at KXLY in Spokane, Washington during his freshman year in college. In 1976, he started at all-news KFWB, and in 1978 he also had a short stint at KWIZ in Santa Ana, California. In 1986, he left KFWB when he was hired by KFI to join Gary Owens' new morning show. Avey later became the newsman for Geoff Edwards' midday talk show at KFI. When Edwards left the station in March 1989, Avey and two other people associated with the show were fired a few days later, and Avey returned to KFWB where he worked for the next twelve years.

In November 2001, KABC hired him to be paired with Ken Minyard in the morning. He continued on as KABC news anchor during The Sean Hannity Show and the Larry Elder show. Avey has also been a sports commentator for the Los Angeles Kings hockey team, and for 15 years has taught a sports broadcasting class at the University of Southern California.
