Top contenders in this category include Chicago-based Erich "Mancow" Muller; Tom Griswold and Bob Kevoian of the Indianapolis-based "Bob and Tom Show"; and Shane French of Cleveland-based "Rover's Morning Glory."
Mr. Griswold and Mr. Kevoian's
show is already broadcast in 150 different markets around the country.
But where Mr. Stern shines in giant metropolises like New York and Los Angeles, Mr. Griswold and Mr. Kevoian
do well in midsize and smaller cities.
