The alarm clock has been going off at 4AM for the past 28 years, and for Sam Malone, it’s music to his
ears. Malone has spent the last 23 years in Houston waking up America’s 4th largest city with #1
ratings, compelling content and great interviews.
Sam earned his B.B.A in Finance from Temple University in his hometown of Philadelphia, but took his
gift-for-gab and great pipes to morning radio soon after graduation. He worked at legendary stations
like Eagle 106 in Philly, and Kiss 98.5 in Buffalo, NY. Malone’s career really took off when he arrived in
Houston to take over the morning show at struggling 104 KRBE. Morning drive ratings skyrocketed! The
Sam Malone show hit #1 and became a staple of morning drive for 12 years.
Clear Channel Radio made Sam “an offer he couldn’t refuse” in 2005. The Sam Malone Show then took
MIX 96.5 all the way up to #1 in the ratings. But Clear Channel also offered Sam something he couldn’t
get elsewhere: his own talk show on 740 KTRH. So, from 6-9am he hosted a Top 40 morning show, and
then from 10-noon conservative talk radio...all in the same building!
In 2012, Sam Malone made the switch to Salem Radio’s AM 1070 The Answer and has increased his
profile as a talk show host to a national level. Now he’s a frequent speaker at
Conservative/Republican/Tea Party rallies that are drawing over 10,000 people.
While working on the radio, Sam caught the attention of television station executives who were
impressed by his quick wit and comfort on camera. He began as a reporter on NBC affiliate KPRC,
contributing five days a week. He also worked at CBS affiliate KHOU Channel 11, and has filled in as
guest host on Great Day Houston.
Sam has interviewed high-profile guests from Sir Paul McCartney to Sen. John McCain, played dueling
pianos with Barry Manilow, met his wife thanks to John Bon Jovi, and attended both Presidential
Inaugurations for George W. Bush. He’s truly an anomaly: comfortable interviewing everyone from
musicians to politicians!
Many Houstonians are also happily married thanks to Sam. His famous Sammy’s Singles events have
led to 28 marriages and 24 babies born! Two of the babies are even named after him.
Sam Malone has also been a contributor on FOX News, MSNBC and CNN.
He lives in Houston with his wife of 25 years, Denise, and their above average son Jake.
And now the BIG NEWS....Sam was appointed President of 512 New Media. He now is now able to bring
his radio/TV expertise to clients seeking cutting edge media messaging via 512 New Media’s state of the
art Media/Video/Content production studios. His popular Morning Show can be heard on AM 1070 The
Answer, viewed on Facebook (Sam Malone Show), YouTube, as well as 6 other broadcast platforms!
