…. some survey on the internet picks ME, Steve Czaban, as the 11th best sports radio host in the country!
/looks in mailbox for bonus check

Seriously, though, this feels alot better than being “Mr. 96” on the “Talkers Heavy 100” like I was the last go-round.
I’ll take 11. Not terrible company. Its just nice to be known. And for the record, I don’t know either Jason Barrett, the blog’s author, nor Tom Parker at the Fan in Milwaukee (although I am pretty sure he’s heard me plenty on Bob and Brian).
Barrett describes the comparison and the exercise with actual Program Directors facilitating his “mock draft” thusly…
I decided to try something fun and interesting by tracking down 32 programmers who I respect in this industry, and having them take part in the first ever sports radio draft. Using ground breaking technology (32 names in a hat) and a list of every single sports radio personality working on a local station or national network, I challenged each PD to select a personality who they found to be compelling, informative, entertaining, opinionated and someone they could win with if they had them on their airwaves.
I know this much: it’s no skin off my nose to see some relative HACKS sitting ABOVE me on this list, for the simple reason that a few highly paid stiffs in the business are ranked far, far below… or NOT AT ALL!
