Brian Madore

Brian Madore got into the radio business through the radio broadcasting course at the Nova Scotia Institute of Technology in Halifax in 1980 – CRXL, which broadcast over the Dartmouth Community Cable Channel in the day when there were only about 13 channels. After seven months, CJYQ Radio in St. John’s, Newfoundland was looking for somebody in their operation; Brian liked what he saw and in December 1980 took a news position at CKYQ in Grand Bank. After only a few months he was promoted to the flagship station in St. John’s and spent the next three years doing just about everything in the business as there were only four people in the newsroom. The competition, VOCM, had about 13. Brian then spent a short time at CFNB in Fredericton before VOCM came calling. That was in 1984 and Brian has been there ever since, even serving a three-year period as news director. There have been many highlights including winning an Atlantic Journalism Award for his coverage of the Muskrat Falls protest 2 1/2 years ago. Brian resides in St. John’s with his wife Mary Furey and their 8-year-old daughter Jude Gerarda Madore.
