Maureen began her radio career at WRTI in 1999 while studying broadcasting at Temple University. Determined to make it in the entertainment industry, she took advantage of all the creative opportunities presented to her at WRTI - she hosted the overnight jazz broadcasts through her entire college career, she was an arts and culture reporter, and she soaked up the jazz biz from her many WRTI mentors.
After graduation, Maureen held many positions in the broadcasting and entertainment industries. She worked in casting and as a booking agent for local talent. She taught speech and acting classes for children. And she had a stint in commercial radio working in production. Along with being an independent music promoter in her spare time, Maureen still managed to host jazz at WRTI. And soon it was clear to her that jazz was her true calling.
Maureen finally found her home in an office full of amazing music, and with a sign on the door that reads "Jazz Program Director."
Maureen can be heard on Mondays through Thursdays, from 9 pm to midnight. She hosts the Jazz Hot 11 Countdown on Monday nights from 10:30 to midnight.
WRTI's Jazz Hot 11 is a weekly countdown of your favorite 11 new jazz releases in rotation at WRTI.
From 12 am each Tuesday until 8 am the following Monday, you can call in or send an email to WRTI to cast your votes for your favorite new jazz releases that you've heard on the air. Then, from 10:30 pm until midnight each and every Monday you can tune in to the Hot 11 to hear which picks made the list. This countdown is for the listeners and is determined by the listeners. It does not come from our opinions, record sales, or the music charts. It comes from you!
Maureen Malloy takes the reigns after BP "high-tails it," with an eclectic mix of different genres of jazz. Be it Modern, Post-Modern, Latin, Bop, Hard-Bop, Big Band or the singers (old and new), you'll always find something you like, and learn why you like it. Musical guests also frequent the studio, so you can gain insight into how the jazz world turns, and who is creating new events and music. Also featured are live tracks that give you a different outlook on familiar pieces of music, and make you feel like you were part of the artists' musical journey.
