12-11 Hanging Up His Headphones_WEB.jpg

Effective in 2020, Bryon Maddox, a familiar voice on east central Indiana airwaves is marking the end of a 30-year broadcast career. 

Maddox’s first foray into radio began in 1978 at WWHC in Hartford City and is wrapping up at the Woofboom Radio media group in Muncie, Indiana. During his radio run, Maddox worked in all many aspects of the broadcast medium including programming, marketing, sales, and promotions. His radio credentials include stops at WLBC, BLAKE-FM, MAX Classic Rock, WERK, WMDH, and Y-100. 

Maddox also served as the “Voice of the Montpelier Motor Speedway” for more than 20 years, serving as the raceway’s public address announcer. He was the “radio voice” for Anderson Speedway’s Little 500 race for Backyard Broadcasting. 

During this same time, he appeared on television as the co-host of WIPB’s Country Hit Videos and in numerous TV promos for Indianapolis television. He was also co-host of the Canine Chronicle video magazine and has other credits in independent film. 

Maddox has enjoyed the many advancements in the industry over the past three decades but does admit that he sometimes longs for the old days of “spinning records” and editing commercials with a grease pencil & a razor blade. 

Maddox is not yet sure which path he will follow in the future but will fondly look back at where he has been.
