Don’t listen for Governor Malloy on “Church and State,” the afternoon radio show on WTIC AM 1080 co-hosted by former Governor John Rowland and Pastor Will Marotti. During a taping of Face the State, I asked the governor about conversations he has had with his predecessors Rowland, Jodi Rell, and Lowell Weicker. Governor Malloy said he hadn’t been on Rowland’s program lately, and “was pretty much done with that. That’s not much of a news show, it is mostly what the governor wants to say and he’s got the right to say it, but I don’t have to participate in it.”
Governor Malloy had been a guest on State and Church from time to time last year, but steered clear of it after Rowland called him a “pathological liar,” a comment Rowland later apologized for.
