Former KMPH (Channel 26.1) anchor John Malos has returned to local TV.He hosts "Connect With Me," a new talk show on the Me-TV Network seen locally on KGMC (Channel 43.6) and Comcast Channel 187. The talk show, which debuted at 10:30 a.m. Monday, will originate from a set built at Ventura TV's showroom. Ventura is the lone local sponsor on the station, which is owned by Cocola Broadcasting."I am truly excited to host 'Connect With Me' as I feel that the show will provide a unique and interesting forum for viewers to engage me and my guests, to get the answers and stories they're not getting anywhere else," says Malos.Since his departure from KMPH in 2005, Malos has made several attempts to launch a local talk program, including an online version.The new TV show will have varied daily themes: business, the community, arts and culture, entertainment and sports.
