Alumni Spotlight: Chad Maxwell
2014 Alumni: Illinois Media School
Ready to meet a true media maven? Say hello to Chad Maxwell, a 2014 graduate of the Illinois Media School and a sports broadcasting pro with some serious chops!
Chad first got his feet wet in sports broadcasting, working as a sports update anchor and producer for 87.7 The Game and WGN Radio Sports in Chicago. Radio was a great start in the industry, but his dream was always to be on television. In 2017, Chad began working as a sports reporter for The Comcast Network Chicago. The pandemic forced Comcast to close its doors, but that didn’t stop Chad from following his dream, which presented itself in Fort Wayne as a Sports Reporter and Weekend Sports Anchor at WPTA ABC21. Recently, Chad joined the WTOC-TV crew as their
Sports Director in beautiful Savannah, Georgia
But that’s not all! Chad’s got some impressive experience under his belt, including stints as an Associate Producer for NBC Sports Chicago and a Video Production Specialist for Local 110 Chicago for almost a decade. Simply put, Chad knows his stuff about sports broadcasting, and we can’t wait to see what he brings to the WTOC-TV team!
