EDITOR’S NOTE: Radio Facts has NOT IN ANY WAY picked these winners. Winners were voted on by their fans on social networks, websites etc. some of the winners are no longer working at a station but were working at the start of the contest 10 weeks ago.

Jeff Fox, the newest of the famed DJ’s of WBLS gets my vote. His program embodies the compass of direction of where WBLS is heading into the future of music.

In addition to that this year makes his 15th Anniversary at WRKS/ 98.7 KISS-FM and he is now hosting his own syndication show “Kissing After Dark w/ Lenny Green” which is carried through the SupeRadio Networks. The show is performing at its highest level beating out its competition in varied categories. Lenny is dedicated, a team player and never stops trying to do better, he deserves this placement because he always acknowledges those radio legends whose shoulders he standing on.

Kenya does a good job and is a real down to earth person. When you see him in the street he acknowledges you and doesn’t come off like he is some celebrity that is above everyone else.

That is why I will give him my vote. Thank you

Has the best sense of humor and the best afternoon drive DJ in the mid-west! Sam’s characters are original and his commentary on local and world events is both humorous as well as serious when need be. Sam just makes my afternoon at work more bearable. When he left Chicago I switched stations. Now he’s back and I have switched again just to hear him even though I don’t care for the music format
#1 Prolifik / KISS – Hartford , CT
Prolifik has to be the funniest yet most humble DJ I’ve ever listened to. He pokes fun at popular current events, but also holds various charity events. I can’t wait to see how far he goes in radio.
