Madden to WXDX
Mark Madden wil land at WXDX (105.9). ESPN will release Madden from his contract at the end of the month to allow him to make the move. A source says ESPN could have kept Madden off the air for another year, but opted to release him in order to use the $12,000 monthly salary in other areas. October 6 is a likely start date during the 3-7 pm shift. That will pit him up against the "Paulsen, Logan and Crow" show which replaced the former Madden show on 1250.
