Michael Richard Levay, better known as LA (born August 18th, 1996) is an American radio host, producer, internet personality, exclusive content creator and visionary from Ocean City, Maryland.
He currently hosts weeknights and Saturday nights from 7p-12a on 96.5 TDY (WTDY-FM HD1) in Philadelphia, PA and the popular mix show-podcast LA’s Thirsty Thursday. LA has also grown in popularity due in large part to his social media presence and connection he creates with The Fam.
LA is known for his astute knowledge of hit music and popular culture married with the connection he creates between artists and listeners, leading to ultra-captivating interviews, interaction, engagement and high listener satisfaction.
He studied mass communication, media production and statistics at Salisbury University, where he was inducted into the honor society of the National Communication Association, Lambda Pi Eta and graduated in the top ten percent of his class.
While in college, LA worked as a night host at 103.9 OC104 (WOCQ-FM HD1) from 2015 to 2018 when he graduated. He also served as an NCAA producer and commentator for Salisbury University varsity sports, ABC 47 (WMDT) and was an executive producer for Salisbury University’s campus television station.
