Pandora Media named ad executive and venture capitalist Brian McAndrews CEO to help the Internet radio company build its online ad business. McAndrews comes from venture capital firm Madrona Venture Group, Microsoft, and digital marketing giant aQuantive. He succeeds Joe Kennedy as chief, president and chairman, Pandora said.
