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.
