Our Host for the Evening
Independent journalist and 90s BET icon Madelyne Woods is one of the most talkative and talked about media personalities in black pop culture. Her broadcast career spans two decades and has introduced her to some of the world’s most fascinating people. As a television and radio personality, she’s won the respect and admiration of audiences with her candid and insightful analysis of news, politics and entertainment. Madelyne’s down to earth intelligence and instinctive ability to connect with guests grants her an intimacy that prompts newsmakers from the White House to the Real Housewives to relax and talk with uncommon candor. Currently, she’s an on-air personality with Radio One DC flagship station Majic 102.3 & 92.7 FM, where she hosts “The Goods with Madelyne Woods”, an entertainment feature during “The Donnie Simpson Show.” She also hosts and produces the station’s weekly public affairs show “Just Like Us.” In addition, Madelyne is a regular contributor to the nationally syndicated “Tom Joyner Morning Show.” Though she’s well known for her celebrity scoops, Madelyne stays top of mind thanks to Phife Dawg of a Tribe Called Quest who rapped, “hun you got the goods, like Madelyne Woods.” Madelyne is a native of Washington, DC where she currently resides. She loves writing, food, exercise, and vacationing with her family.
