Maureen Malloy

Jazz Host

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.
