Ken Matthews adds affiliate stations for radio show
Beginning April 12, WTAM in Cleveland will launch a new program, “The Jimmy Malone Show,” weekdays from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. and will take over the time slot vacated by Geraldo Rivera, who left the radio station April 1.
Malone’s new show on WTAM will feature veteran producer Rob Rozycki and contributor Cache Roberts. Additionally, Malone will host conversations with politicians, community and business leaders, journalists, and more.
“I am thrilled at the opportunity to connect with the WTAM audience,” Malone said in a press release. “WTAM is the market leader in news and information, and it is humbling to have the opportunity to join such a legendary radio station. I just can’t wait to get started.
Additionally, he will feature segments including his signature feature, “Knuckleheads In The News.” Malone has a long radio career dating back to 1985, first doing his signature “Knuckleheads in the News” segment during weekly appearances on WMJI’s “Lanigan and Webster Morning Show.”
In 1991, the veteran radio host became a full-time co-host of the show, where he remained a mainstay until 2021. Afterwards, he launched “The Jimmy Malone Show” on WARF-AM .
“We are thrilled to launch ‘The Jimmy Malone Show’ on WTAM,” said Keith Kennedy, Senior Vice President of Programming for iHeartMedia Cleveland.
“Jimmy is an avid talk show host, generous philanthropist and lover of all things Cleveland. We are thrilled to add another powerful local voice to a station that means so much to the community.
