List of Top 100 Radio Talk Show Hosts Includes Liberals

Reported by Marie Therese - July 7, 2006 -

Talkers Magazine, the trade publication for the radio talk industry, published its bi-annual list of the Top Talk Radio Audiences. The thing that surprised me was that of the 38 talk show hosts listed in rankings from 1 to 13, five were liberals: Ed Schultz (9th), Al Franken (11th), Randi Rhodes and Alan Colmes (tied at 12th) and Stephanie Miller (13th). But, more importantly, several of these same progressives reached a coveted spot on Talkers' annual Heavy 100 list.
