Malone, who spent 12 years at KRBE (104.1 FM) and three years at KHMX (96.5 FM) through late 2008, will work from 6 to 9 a.m. on the Houston station, which is owned by state Sen. Dan Patrick.
"It's beyond cool," Malone said. "I've known (Patrick) for a long time. When we first met in 2004, he said something to the effect that I was going to be working for him some day."
Malone has been working guest spots on KSEV since last fall, when the non-compete portion of his contract with Clear Channel Radio expired. He said his KSEV show will mix the pop-culture staples from his long-running show on KHMX and KRBE with the political talk that is a staple of AM radio. However, he said he will avoid the harsher edge that is common among many shows of that genre.
"I'm not an angry person. I'm laughing my way through life," he said. "There are serious issues to talk about, but, as I said a couple of days ago, there are too many people yelling on talk radio. READ THE REST
