AJC Radio Blog: Talkers Mag Top 100 Radio Talk Shows

Radio Talk Blog by Rodney Ho: "Talkers magazine, a trade publication, ranked the 100 “most important radio talk show hosts in America.”

The editor Michael Harrison has been compiling the list for several years and it’s fairly subjective. He writes that the goal is “to create a list reflective of the industry’s diversity and total flavor as well as giving credit where credit is due.” Factors include courage, effort, impact, longevity, potential, ratings, recognition, revenue, service, talent and uniqueness. Most of those on the top of the list are syndicated and I am only referencing their local affiliate here in Atlanta below.

The top host is not surprisingly Rush Limbaugh, who has 20 million-plus listeners a week and has wielded more influence than virtually any other talk-show host this side of Howard Stern."

Read and weep.
