The midway point of the week is where we celebrate the programs who entertain our audiences as they head home from work each afternoon. This category is ultra competitive and features some of the best talk talent on the radio airwaves, period.
Congratulations goes out to The Bull and Fox on 92.3 The Fan in Cleveland. MAXX Clients Adam “The Bull” Gerstenhaber and Dustin Fox ended 2017 by finishing 1st in the ratings in their market with Men 25-54. Their performance throughout the year in one of America’s greatest sports cities was good enough to earn them this year’s honor.
As we acknowledge in each Top 20 posting, our rankings are determined by a panel of radio executives who use the following criteria below to make their choices. BSM does not vote in this process. We simply add up the votes, design the graphics, and present a collective snapshot for people inside and outside of the industry to gain a better understanding of how sports radio’s top decision makers view the format’s best programs.
- Ratings success in their local market
- Quality content and on-air presentation
- An established track record of success in the format
- Spent more than six months hosting on a Mid Market sports radio station
- Points are given for each ranking (EX: 20 points for 1st place, 1 point for 20th place)
Please remember that these results reflect the group’s collective opinions. This means they are subjective. However, it’s difficult to argue with the success and respect of each of these shows in their respective markets.
