Best Radio Personality

Craig Fahle

comment

The Craig Fahle Show, WDET-FM (101.9); wdetfm.org; 10-noon, 6-8 p.m., Monday-Friday 

Much of what's called talk radio — on the right, especially, but sometimes on less-prominent left talk radio too — is more like shout radio, the blare of ideological megaphones in echo chambers. The NPR style tends to talk as conversation, talking with rather than talking at the audience. Fahle, with the former Detroit Today rebranded and built around his personality, has found his niche in the estimation of MT balloters. Part of his success is being a big radio tent and encouraging a range of caller views while recruiting knowledgable guests. "I learn something new every day" is one of his on-air mantras. And if we're representative of his audience, we do too. Airs 10-noon live Monday-Friday and replays 6-8 p.m. Monday-Thursday. (Full disclosure: We're regular guests in the just-before-noon slot on Wednesdays.)
