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.

The probe by New Jersey legislators into last year’s shutdown of lanes leading to the George Washington Bridge has gone on for more than nine months and it appears Governor Chris Christie is losing patience with Democrats
Comparing Camden and Atlantic City, at least on the police issue, just won’t work for Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian.
Gorski, 35, of Mount Holly, was charged in late July with abusing a girl for seven years, starting when she was six.
He was first elected to Council in 1983 and served for years as Santa Claus at the Cherry Hill Mall.

Whatever the motivation, Christie says, if Trump wants in, no problem.
Atlantic City mayor Don Guardian discussed his long-term goals for the shore town that has been wracked over the past few weeks by consolidation in the casino industry.
For all the pain, one expert says things in Atlantic City are not as bad as they seem.

An idea under consideration is to form a regional police force in Atlantic City similar to what happened in Camden.
