The Top Ten

Howard Stern Show
He invented the type of radio that all the others on this list are copying. He offers true reality entertainment. Unlike the manufactured "reality" shows, he shares his deepest secrets and weaknesses with the audience. No other entertainer is that honest and on display.


The Michael Jordan of radio.
Had a #1 book, movie and radio show all at the same time.
During his peak on terrestrial radio, Howard Stern was pulling in almost twice the numbers Rush Limbaugh has today.

2Rush Limbaugh
He makes me see possibilities of what is the motivation of politicians behind their actions and makes me think deeper. He is great in his knowledge of history and understands what has worked well for America and what hasn't. Congress should have to consult with him before they vote on anything.
Howard the duck number one, proof that idiocy rules the World.
Many good talk show hosts, but none does a better job then Rush.
Rush is the man! God Bless America! And God Bless Rush!
[Newest]I've been an avid fan since 1988. Loved him so much my license plate says "Ditto".

3Elvis Duran and YMorning Zoo
Listened this morning to a segment on break ups and had to slow down driving from laughing too hard at the question of "were you looking at him at the time" referencing the caller saying it was during sex that she initiated the "we're done". Awesome show.
Best Crew - Carolina, John, Danielle, TJ, Sceery, Craig T, Froggy and of course Elvis Duran. Plus they have the best phone taps just check out Joanne Gordan.
Greatest morning show EVER! HILARIOUS!

Thank you!

4Opie and Anthony (feat. Jim Norton)
Best show on any type radio. The Ron and Pepper Hicks Show is right there too. Anyone who says they copy Stern clearly stopped listening along time ago and is just trying to ride a wave long past.
Grew up in the eighties listening to Howard and haven't looked back. Greatest of the great!
These guys and Ron and Fez are the best shows in radio.

5Bob and Tom Show
greatest one... been on for years. I love it.


Day-to-day the best show on radio!

6Jarvis Cocker

7Paul Harvey
I used to listen to his stories as a little girl on the school bus. Oh, I must have been nine, maybe ten. He was an inspiration to me. He taught me many lessens in life.
When I was a small child, Radio and radio news was all we had. We had Paul Harvey, Johnny Dollar, The Six Shooter and work. I miss it all!

8Car Talk
You learn a lot more about everything, not just cars. Fun show every time.


9STONE & Digital Dave Radio Show
Most funny and entertaining show I have heard of late. The ironic thing about them is, you can hear something on the Stone & Digital Dave show and days later, Howard Stern, Elvis Duran or Imus will have ripped it off like it was their original idea.
Once you start listening to them for the day, you just can't stop!
I heard them for the first time talking sports. It was refreshing no agenda just entertaining.

the queen of sappy love songs
I love your show Delilah

The Contenders

11The Mighty Boosh (Radio Series)
Yes this is awesome and number 1

12Don Imus
Don's a hit at our home as my son also was a popular on air personality and then they changed formats... But he enjoys listening to Don's show whenever he is on if possible.
Longest running radio program, ever.
Still the best after all these years!

13Pugs and Kelly
105.3 fm dallas. This is THE talk Show that Rocks!!!!

14Phil Hendrie
Phil Hendrie is the last bastion of true performance radio. Never disappointing.
Too funny and a great talent. Major media xm should give him s uncensored show..

15Hamish and Andy
These guys are the absolute funniest! Listening to them right now

16Chris Smith - WNXT

17Mike and Mike In The Morning - ESPN Radio

18Dr. Drew Pinsky

19Dr. Laura Schlessinger
I love her show...

20MJ Morning Show
