The Top Ten Best Radio Personalities / Shows

1 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.

Simply the best. Never be another like him.

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

2 Howard Stern Show

How the heck is this guy #1. He is a sellout and his show sucks now. Back in the early 2000's maybe? But this buffoon is no loner in the top 20. He is busy kissing up to Rosie O'Donnel nowadays!

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.

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

Just love the music he plays.

5 Mike and the Mad Dog

They were great together, alone not so much. Mike has become a cranky old man and Mad Dog talks less and less on his show about sports and more about his infatuation with Bruce Springsteen

6 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.

7 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!

I've been an avid fan since 1988. Loved him so much my license plate says "Ditto".

8 Sid Rosenberg

Who voted this jerk #9. This guy sucks. He has had so many runin with the law, he's been fired from a half a dozen stations. How does he continue to find work. Oh he is white and a Jew. And they control the media.

We are glad this bum is off Miami radio.

9 Charles McCord
10 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!

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

The Contenders

11 STONE & Digital Dave Radio Show

I can only hear them on the Internet. I subscribed to Sirius radio in both my trucks because I was told they were on it and I could listen to them anywhere in the States in my Truck. Sirius radio lied to me. They are not on it. I cancelled my two subscriptions and have encouraged my friends to do so to.

Don't lie to get subscribers!

These guys suck! They bash Howard Stern! They bash CNN. They bash NYC. I think they are Trump puppets. The only good thing about them is unlike other goobers they actually play good music between their babbling. I called the show one time and they did let me talk even though, I was bashing the pits out of them. Most radio guys would have hung up on me.

Over the top radio. These guys are like what Howard Stern use to be like.

Great show! Great listen in the time where most radio stations have cookie cutter and syndicated shows these two still standout.

12 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.

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.

13 Bernard McGuirk
14 Joe Benigno

What a great listen to. This guy loves sports. He is a fan doing sports talk radio and is one of the best.

Got to love his passion about sports. A bit of a Homer but he is a NJ/NY. A great listen to

15 Bob and Tom Show

This show gave me a reason to laugh in the morning. Can't believe the show was canceled - just so wrong.

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!

16 Jarvis Cocker
17 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.

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

Been listening to them since I was young, still love them!

19 Delilah

the queen of sappy love songs

I love your show Delilah

20 Preston and Steve

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.


21 Phil Hendrie

I'd stay up later than necessary to hear Phil jerk fools around. Priceless.

Phil as "host", Phil as "guest", and clueless, outraged caller from 90's through mid-2000's is sheer genius, radio gold.

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..

22 Charlamagne Tha God

Breakfast Club

Should be top 10

23 The Mighty Boosh (Radio Series)

Yes this is awesome and number 1

24 Pugs and Kelly

105.3 fm dallas. This is THE talk Show that Rocks!!!!

25 Dr. Laura Schlessinger

I love her show...

26 The Free Beer and Hot Wings Show


27 The John Boy and Billy Big Show

Good but a bit inconsistent. They do one funny show to three bad ones.

Still funny after all these years. Nice guys too.

28 Mike and Mike In The Morning - ESPN Radio
29 Johnjay and Rich

They are awesome

They are one of three shows I listen to and by far the best.

Love the dynamics of the cast.

30 Chris Smith - WNXT

Way cool.

31 MJ Morning Show

This show is growing on me.

32 Bubba the Love Sponge

He is true and a bad ass at the same time great crew

33 Mark Levin

Always informative and interesting. really knows his stuff. Involved with his law firm working against liberalism.

Simply the best

The great One

He was for ted cruz? now he's happy about trump...which he should have voted for trump in the first place...makes me wonder about him... ck out styxhexenhammer on you tube...much better than any of these radio personalities.

34 Dr. Drew Pinsky
35 Sean Hannity Sean Patrick Hannity is an American talk show host and conservative political commentator. Hannity is the host of The Sean Hannity Show, a nationally syndicated talk radio show. He also hosts a cable news show, Hannity, on Fox News.

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.

Ultra conservitive takes on Rocky Anderson


36 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! "

37 Rob, Arnie & Dawn

Best show out there

38 The Mike Calta show

He is funny at times.

39 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

The best there is. Been listening to them since the 80's when they started out on B97 FM in New Orleans. Eat it everyday!

40 The Kane Show

This is the only show telling truths. I listen everyday. Thanks to this team I'm more informed of the facts. Thank you, we love you all here in Davenport Florida.

This radio guy is dullsville.

Kane show!
