David Madden is a Philadelphia native with virtually a lifetime of experience in local radio. At the tender age of 13, his news reports were heard on WIBG Radio from time to time.
His first paid on-air position was as a freelance reporter for WIBG in the early 70s while attending high school at St. Joseph’s Prep.
Later, attending Temple University, he reported news on WIFI-92. Madden graduated from Temple in 1977 with a BA in Speech, Rhetoric, and Communications.
After graduating, Madden became News Director at WBUX-AM in Doylestown before moving to WWDB-FM as a reporter, morning news anchor and Assistant News Director between 1978 and 1982.
From there, he went to work for WFIL, where he anchored news and sports reports through 1985. He also served as a host of the two-way talk show “Crossfire.”
Next, Madden moved to Harrisburg, where he ran the news department at WKBO radio. It was during this time that he began his tenure at KYW Newsradio as a part-time reporter in 1986.
After leaving Harrisburg in 1987, he briefly split his time between KYW and WTOP in Washington, DC before joining KYW full time in March, 1989 as a general assignment reporter.
Today, Madden serves in a variety of roles on KYW Newsradio 1060, mostly covering the Philadelphia suburbs. He also works as a fill-in anchor and editor.
Madden resides in Gloucester County, NJ with his wife, Teri. They’ve been married since 1990.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has taken a couple serious hits in the court of public opinion in the wake of Bridgegate.
Elie Honig, director of the state’s Division of Criminal Justice, says cops won’t be the only ones with eyes peeled.
Sen. Nicholas Scutari (D-Union County), who chairs the state senate’s Judiciary Committee, says the war on marijuana has gone nowhere and it just makes sense to make marijuana available legally to those over 21.
In light of Bridgegate and the Governor’s insistence he knew nothing of what underlings were doing, it turned out to be a very poignant question.
“We worked hard at the end of the session to try to advance good legislation that had bipartisan support, and most of those bills did,” said state senate president Steve Sweeney. “It was quite a surprise to see so many vetoed.”
When you hear the term “e-ticket” you probably don’t think of the cops. But one South Jersey town is taking traffic tickets to a new, high tech level.
