The 99.9 The Fan Sports Talk Host duo Adam Gold and Joe Ovies have been ranked as one of the top 100 sports talk radio hosts in the nation yet again. The pair makes a repeat appearance on the TALKERS Heavy Hundred of Sports Talk for 2017.
TALKERS magazine published its fifth annual Heavy Hundred of Sports Talk on Monday, March 13, 2017. The editors of TALKERS magazine determine the list, previously known as the 100 Most Important Sports Talk Radio Hosts in America, ranking sports talk hosts, duos or ensembles from 1 to 100.
The criteria include hard factors like ratings and revenue, along with soft factors such as talent, recognition, impact and service.
“This annual ranking of the most important sports talk radio hosts is one of the most difficult – but enjoyable – projects we undertake at TALKERS,” said TALKERS Executive Editor Kevin Casey. “The reason for that is the partially subjective nature of the criteria combined with the enormous number of talented and successful sports talk hosts working in America. Paring that pool of talent down to 100 is no easy task!”
Adam and Joe will be heading to Phoenix for the NCAA Final Four, broadcasting their show live from Arizona on Thursday, March 30 and Friday, March 31 from 3:00-7:00pm on 99.9 The Fan, streaming on WRALSportsFan.com and the WRALSportsFan app.
