Dennis Malloy was born in an Italian neighborhood in South Philadelphia and went to Catholic school until the seventh grade, when his family moved to South Jersey. Malloy credits a high school teacher at Holy Cross, Tom Bauer, with steerin him toward broadcasting. He got his first job in radio in Hammonton at the age of 18 and worked his way up in the industry, doing every possible job from from play-by-play high school sports to news to music director to producing commercials and even sales. Malloy also found his way to the stage and has performed stand-up for many years, even opening for Jerry Seinfeld in Philadelphia just before his hit TV show premiered. After losing a morning show job in Philadelphia in the 1990s, Malloy moved to New Jersey 101.5. He was paired with Judi Franco in 1997 and the chemistry and close friendship was immediate. It was the kind of 'lightning in a bottle' chemistry that broadcasting managers dream of concocting. Off the air, Malloy loves to fish, golf, garden, cook, hike, and build crazy things like his motorized floating dock. If he could do anything else but radio, it would be to open an agritourism (bed and breakfast) in Italy to cook for and host American tourists.
