Newsmax's Top 25 Local Radio Hosts

Thursday, 02 Apr 2009 08:50 AM

It’s been said that all politics is local. If it hits you where you live, you want to be able to vote on it. Not to mention talk about it.

“Local talk is how talk-radio made a name for itself, being the only outlet for scrappy opinions in the pre-Internet days,” says John Mainelli, former programming director for the powerhouse station WABC radio in New York, and one of the top gurus in the industry.

So who’s the Hannity of Houston, the Savage of Seattle, or the Limbaugh of Los Angeles? Newsmax decided to find out.

Our list of America’s 25 foremost local talk-show hosts was not compiled using simple audience ratings only, but a complex look at each host’s reach, influence, reputation, length of service, time slot, community impact, and overall showmanship. And our Talk-O-Meter ranks the hosts on a scale from 1 (most liberal) to 10 (most conservative).
