*ARMSTRONG and GETTY are truly heroic and entertaining radio hosts with compelling, hysterical, wildly entertaining content. They should be in the Radio Hall of Fame.
*Ronn Owens is the most sincere radio talk-show host in the Bay Area. No ego, no self-centered ness, not an ounce of outlandish behavior, a voice of reason.
*Jan Wahl is a relative breath of fresh air and her movie reviews offer hope and inspiration. Jan is a theatre literate individual with straightforward, humanistic film reviews devoid of syrupy jabberwocky --the Mother Teresa of critics, what a joy to listen to on KCBS.
*If you looked up "Chef Ryan Scott" in the dictionary, you'd find the word, "genius" next to him. Chef Ryan and 15 minutes of pot roast recipes. Pure heaven.
*Brian Copeland is the glue that sticks the next generation of KGO Radio together. If Brian and Ronn Owens are not the greatest radio guys around, I'm Queen Latifah.
*Liam Mayclem, the foodie chap on KCBS and KPIX? Call the Pulitzer people!
*Ross Palombo is the Walter Cronkite of KTVU News.
*Heather Holmes is the Diane Sawyer of KTVU News

*Determined, passionate, unrelenting; the sports version of Woodward and Bernstein: Kate Scott.
*Aaron Pero is a thoughtful, distinguished, humanistic TV News journalistic GIANT: his leadership not only bond the good people at KRON, but the entire Bay Area. What a nice man, a sensitive fellow with compassion and virtue. You just want to cuddle with him.
*Dear Mike Anthony: Your genius has KGO on the rise. I respect your pragmatism. You, sir, are my God.
*Dear Chip Franklin: You are the Arthur Godfrey of our time. Your professionalism and sales technique are the cornerstone of true radio crafting. I'd eat a bottle of toenail fungus for you; I'd swallow a MyPillow for you; you, Chip, is the reason I live life for, you are my inspiration.
*Allen Martin and Melissa Caen are Peabody material talents at KPIX. If you say otherwise, you are my enemy.
*Da Lin: Every time I watch him the only thing that comes to mind is he's the Asian Larry King.
*Damon Bruce: spontaneous, unrehearsed, loving and careful. Simplicity in its purest form.
*Ethan Bearman: A true legend. Art Finley? Owen Spann? Jim Eason? Who?
*Brian Murphy and Paulie Mac: They are warm and fuzzy. They make you want to hug your radio. They exude hope for all of us. They are just, well, awesome. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!
*KNBR: You are the sunshine of my life. You make me feel like dancin', gonna dance the night away. The music, the passion, the sports, the commercials, just freakin' fantastic.
*Lee Hammer: You and Churchill are in the same league.
*Gary Radnich: Just a great human being with family values to boot. He is my hope and inspiration every time I visit the Tenderloin.
