About

Howard G. Malley was an American television producer.

Malley was best known for producing all of the video material for the "We Are The World" project, which helped raise money for African famine relief in the mid-1980s. He won two MTV Awards and received an Emmy Award nomination for his efforts.

Malley also served as a unit manager on the first season of the game show Jeopardy! in 1964, produced several specials starring Kenny Rogers, won a Daytime Emmy in 1980 for his work on the NBC kids special Hot Hero Sandwich, and was an executive in charge of production on Pee-Wee's Playhouse and America's Funniest Home Videos.

In 1977, Bob Bardo, head of unit managers at ABC in Hollywood, brought Malley to Los Angeles. He worked on the American Music Awards, the 50th Academy Awards in 1978 and other specials before leaving to become a line producer.

After more than 40 years in the industry, Malley retired in 2006 after being diagnosed with MS.

Malley died March 29, 2018, in Woodland Hills, California. He was 72.
