2018 Best Radio Personalities

Toucher & Rich

In a sports-talk-radio scene dominated by rude banter, 98.5 the Sports Hub’s Fred Toucher and Rich Shertenlieb manage to stand out by bringing knowledge and humor to their show—without riling you up on the ride to work. Regular guests include the Celtics’ Danny Ainge and The NFL Today’s Boomer Esiason, and interviews are far more candid than canned. Most important, they understand how passionate we are about sports in forms big and small: They’re as likely to discuss regular golfers getting in a fight on the green as they are to recap the Masters.
