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.

Howard Stern doesn't know what he's talking about. He's extremely rude to the rest of the people on that show, and he swears to much.

In my opinion I think that Howard is a mean, rude, arrogant man. He's ugly and is mean to everyone.

2 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!

Owned by corporations. Not nearly as intelligent as Thom Hartmann or John Fugelsang.

3 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.

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

Howard Stern was afraid of them. Truly the edgiest guys in radio history.

Really miss these guys Now all I have is FAN & ESPN

4 Elvis 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.

Kudos to Elvis for managing this bunch and keeping it moving, but the true genius is the one that hired this diverse group of amiable co-hosts. They crack me up every morning and inspire topics of conversation later in the day with friends and family.

Greatest morning show EVER! HILARIOUS!

Thank you!

5 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!

6 Jarvis Cocker
7 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!

8 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.

9 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 guys are to coof 4 radio.

The Contenders

11 Don 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!

A legend!
