A long-time fixture in the Lowell media scene, Teddy Panos founded InsideLowell, a 21st century multi-media company shaped by his over 30-year career in television, radio, newspaper, digital and social media.
Before launching InsideLowell in October of 2022, Panos capped a nearly 15-year run as Host of the Morning Drive Show on 980WCAP-AM, where he became a go-to source for local news and information. Whether breaking major news stories or securing interviews with newsmakers ranging from Presidential candidates and members of the U.S. Congress to local officials and community figures, he could be counted on to tell the story behind the story through his unique style and humor.
Prior to radio, Panos authored the first ever blog for the Lowell Sun newspaper, while also penning a weekly column. Before that, he was a 2-time award winning Sports Anchor/Reporter for WNDS-TV in Derry, NH, a station carried on over 2-million cable households throughout New England. Teddy got his start in television and media working as a Sports Producer at WHDH-TV in Boston from 1992-1999. Panos holds a Master’s Degree in Mass Communication from Emerson College and a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from UMass-Lowell. He is a graduate of Dracut High School.
When not busy covering the local scene, Panos helps manage his family restaurant in Downtown Lowell and does fundraising for the Megan House Foundation. In his free time, he enjoys spending time and sharing laughs with friends and family. The moments he cherishes most, however, are those spent with his wife Rylee and their beautiful children Ari Stavros and Ruby Alexandra.
Why Teddy Founded InsideLowell: “I’ve long felt there was a need for a media platform in Lowell that combines all aspects of Mass Communication. InsideLowell is my vision of that platform. With contributions from a talented and dedicated team of Insiders, we will inform, entertain and engage the audience by providing inside access to the people and events that shape our community.”
