Best Radio Personalities / Shows

The Top Ten

1 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.

Howard's show is so boring now. Not funny. He should have retired this time. Horrible.

One of the reasons I own a radio, by far the best entertainer on radio or on the planet. I even get a laugh when people don't get the the show.

hey now

2 Don Imus

The best talk show host with the irreverent banter with his crew and unpredictable interactions with the wide variety of guests. He was just hilarious and never boring, I miss him already

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.

The best morning show ever. Unfortunately, he is retiring 31 March 2018.

Simply the best. Never be another like him.

3 Paul 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!

My husband I were recalling some wonderful voices and Paul Harvey had the best voice to listen to!

4 Little Steven's Underground Garage
5 Mike and the Mad Dog
6 Rush Limbaugh Rush 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!

The greatest of Alll!

7 Wolfman Jack

Long before the movie "American Graffiti" or the T.V. show "Midnight Special", he was a real all-night outlaw DJ on an overpowered station broadcasting from Tijuana.

8 Sid Rosenberg
9 Opie 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.

I'm kind of a comedy nerd and they are the funniest thing I've ever seen or heard in any medium. Let alone on a daily basis for hours.

Grew up in the eighties listening to Howard and haven't looked back. Greatest of the great!

These guys and stern run neck and neck for number 1.

10 Elvis Duran and YMorning Zoo

Am I the only one who listens to this show and can't stand it, can't stand Elvis (Barry), or the screaming crew who must laugh at what he says to keep their jobs? Still looking desperately for another morning entertainment. The only thing that keeps this show going are daily callers who unload their own miserable daily lives. And you can get that on most any station. I would give this show a minus % if I could. - 1Ronald

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.

Best show! Hands down! I am hooked!

The Contenders

11 Charles McCord
12 STONE & 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.

These two have exposed Howard Stern as a punk who has sold out.

13 Bob and Tom Show

They were legends in Indiana where I grew up so when I moved to Indianapolis 10 years that they had already been on air. I was so happy to hear their program. I moved away in 2000 for military have missed them ever since. I recently found out Bod has since retired from the show and Kristi has left as well.

greatest one... been on for years. I love it. - jwileson

Day-to-day the best show on radio!

14 Bernard McGuirk
15 Jarvis Cocker
16 Car Talk

You learn a lot more about everything, not just cars. Fun show every time. - mgenet

Who could resist this show? The brothers played hilariously off each other and the callers.

17 Joe Benigno
18 Hamish and Andy

These guys are amazing, not only are they funny, they take you on a tour of creativity and excitement.

These guys deserve to be number 1! They have me in hysterics every day on the way home from work

These guys are the absolute funniest! Listening to them right now

I got the need.
The need for steve.
Hope there's a steve here.

One of the best, funniest and most relatable morning shows on radio today - you don't dominate a market like Philadelphia without being wildly talented - these guys do it DAILY.

I like it that show.

31 Dr. Drew Pinsky
32 Walton and Johnson

The best radio show in the south. It should be a national radio show. You can find them on Bayou 95.7 New Orleans only classic ROCK or Walton and Johnson. Com

Use to love these guys, they would always be in some sort of trouble for what they said.

Funny guys listen every morning

To bad they went off the air in Biloxi Mississippi.

37 Nights with Alice Cooper

Frustrated. So far, so typical. Five presets down, one to go. Only one more disappointment left and I can return to my comfort zone of talk radio.This pattern will be repeated countless times, only to end when my car and I have reached our destination. What happened to real Rock n' Roll that owned the the night? Where the DJ's artfully spun their playlist on a nightfully basis. The songs seemed to tell a story if the show went just right. Here I was in one of the worlds largest radio markets without a truly decent FM show at night. Then something changed, at least from my perspective. About one year ago, reluctantly pressing my #6 preset, I heard what seemed to be a familiar voice. By the end of that night I realized what I found. I found what I had missed since, well I don't remember. Nights with Alice Cooper now provides the songs with stories, facts, and authentic soul. A chance to hear your favorite songs and to understand their relevance from someone who was actually there. Just ...more

H3LL YEAH! This is like the best radio show EVER! Alice is funny and plays awesome music. For me it goes:
1. Nights
2. Undergroud Garage
3. Bax and O'brien (funny ass bastards) - fireinside96

What a great radio host! When he was discussing certain liquids in cans he said this classic line: "I wonder what would happen if they put Coke (Coca cola)in a CAN! Now THAT would be something! "

38 Rob, Arnie & Dawn

Best show out there

39 Troi Torain aka Star

TROI is the truth.. Hilarious

40 Sean Hannity Sean Hannity

Works hard and all the time. Doesn't seem to take anything for granted. A genuinely good person that just loves the art of debate and conversation.

I love it that he is a thinking American. Wish congress would follow suit.
