John Madden Has Been Absent from the Radio Airwaves For Over Two Weeks
John Madden has been noticeably absent from his KCBS (and other radio broadcasts); in fact, Madden hasn't been on the air since Nov. 24th. A visit to his podcast page at KCBS confirms this.
I've received numerous e-mails from readers asking if I know what's going on.
There's a lot of speculation that Madden is ill --to what extent and the seriousness or lack thereof is not known. KCBS and its News Director, Jack Swanson, have not returned phone calls and e-mails which, given Hipaa laws, one can fully understand. That said, the station has been fairly murky on the mysterious absence of one of its marquee broadcasters.
We here at 415 Media wish and hope John Madden is well and hope to hear him back on the air soon.
