Stephen D. Malzberg (born April 20, 1959),[1] known as Steve Malzberg, is an American television and radio host, syndicated columnist, and political commentator. He is the host of The Steve Malzberg Show, a cable news and opinion show on Newsmax TV. He has also hosted The Steve Malzberg Show on various talk radio outlets.


A graduate of Brooklyn College, Malzberg worked at 77 WABC for over twenty-five years in several capacities, as an overnight political talk show host, a sports commentator, and co-host of a regular afternoon show with Richard Bey. In 2004, Malzberg joined the staff of New York City radio station WWRL-1600 AM, where he co-hosted an early morning show with New York Daily News columnist Karen Hunter. In July 2005, the short-lived morning team of Hunter and Malzberg was disbanded as Malzberg left WWRL.

In 2006, Malzberg returned to WABC to broadcast brief sports commentary segments. Throughout his career, he has also served as a substitute talk show host (on radio and television) and political pundit on various cable news shows, such as Heartland (hosted by Republican Governor of Ohio John Kasich), Fox & Friends, Hannity & Colmes, The O'Reilly Factor, Dayside, and several other programs on the Fox News Channel and CNN. He has been a host and commentator on cable-news channel MSNBC, where he has substituted for both Monica Crowley and Joe Scarborough. He was a frequent contributor to Phil Donahue's MSNBC show.

In May 2007, Malzberg replaced Lionel as an evening host on WOR in New York and on the nationally syndicated WOR Radio Network. The Steve Malzberg Show initially aired in the late-night time slot, but aired live on the network from 4 to 6 PM ET Monday through Friday for most of its life. On September 1, 2011, Malzberg announced on his personal web site that WOR had not renewed his contract. The slot was filled by former New York Governor David Paterson.

Since 2014 Malzberg has been featured on Newsmax TV's Steve Malzberg Show, currently seen weekdays from 5 to 6 PM.
