Mike Francesa and the Top 20 Radio Sports Shows (and Hosts) in the United States

Mike Francesa Is The No. 1 Sports Radio Personality In The United States

Mike Francesa Is The No. 1 Sports Radio Personality In The United States

Mike Francesa is the “King (or should we say Pope) of All Sports Radio.” His show on WFAN 660 AM and 101.9 FM -  a chunk of afternoon in the biggest radio market around, New York City – is tops on two respected trade lists: Talkers Magazine and Radio Ink.

Sports List of the Day is a fan. Some of the posts here were derived from topics mentioned on Francesa’s show.

His WFAN morning colleagues, Boomer and Carton, take second place on both lists, as well.

But that’s where most of the similarities between both lists end. Numbers 3-8 on Talkers’ list don’t even make Radio Ink’s top 20, for example. The overlap between both rankings is eight hosts (marked with asterisks).

What gives? Ranking criteria. “Ratings and revenue are two of the major factors,” says Talkers, but there’s more to it. Click on the raters’ links to see how they came up with their rankings – and to see more (Talkers gives you the top 100; Radio Ink, the top 30).
