Monsters in the Morning that airs locally in Orlando and I think on XM. They used to be great and I listened for year in High school and college but then the lead host got married and went nuts drunk with power and the show suffered. Reminds me of what happened to Stern. Although, I really like the Wrap up show on Sirius. Baba Booey rules.

I only really listen to sports talk lately, and Colin Cowherd is insufferable. He's awful, awful, awful, and I can't understand how he has a national audience.
More locally, in this market, Mike Francesa knows nothing about baseball yet considers himself the sports pope (at least he's decent with football), and Joe Beningo is everything I hate about being a Mets fan. I wish he liked the Yankees.
My problem with Cowherd is the same problem I have with a lot of people in radio and TV, which is his annoying elitism. He has no problems with complaining about his audience when they're not 100% in lockstep with him (he especially loves to bash people who make less than 6 figures a year).
If you hate your audience so much, get out of the business. Even if it means making less money.
Cowherd doesn't hate his audience. He's even said it himself that if you are a radio host and nobody has a problem with you, then you're a boring radio host.
I do agree that he's on one end of things and Mike and Mike are on the other.
A happy middle ground would be Scott Van Pelt.
People should hate you because they disagree with your opinions and or style. Your style and opinions shouldn't be molded to get people pissed off at you.
Cowheard sucks he just sucks. He is the Glenn Beck of sports radio he just wants to draw controversy for controversies sake. The mans style is abrasive just to be abrasive his opinions in addition to not being good are more so based on what will start controversy.

Glenn Beck. Not because I dislike him, per se, It's when I want to listen to Rush, I'll listen to Rush, not his cover band. It's the same reason I'll watch Pawn Stars but not Auction Kings.
“I don’t need to see the movie to know it’s a stupid film, I saw the commercial. Isn’t that supposed to tell me why I should see this film? I mean, if the studio can’t make a better pitch for two hours of my time and ten dollars of my money, why should give them the benefit of the doubt?”
