Sam Malone and Maria Todd reuniting on Houston radio?

UPDATE 2/2010
Maria Todd on Mix 96.5 KHMX

Is former 104.1 KRBE morning show host Maria Todd returning from San Francisco to reunite with Sam Malone somewhere on the Houston radio dial? That's the rumor.

Anyone who has been reading this blog knows I've been following Sam's every move since he left Mix 96.5 KHMX, so I went right to the source and asked Malone for the scoop.

"I'm actually wringing my hands like an evil scientist who uses the phrase 'diabolical,'" Malone told the mikemcguff.com blog. "I've have been counting the days until my "other" wife would be free to return to the airwaves as the funniest woman in Houston radio! Will we be together again? That's a PPM tease."

Sounds cryptic, but I think his words to me point to YES! The PPM acronym refers to Arbitron's Portable People Meters which is the way radio ratings are now measured. With Maria Todd and Sam Malone back on the air, those pager-like devices that track listening habits might explode.

For those of you who do not know, Sam Malone and Maria Todd were a very popular morning show team on CHR 104.1 KRBE from the 90s to the mid-2000s.

Stay tuned here.
