Best Sports Talk Host

Mike Trivisonno, WTAM-AM/1100

Mike Trivisonno is an obnoxious, unpolished, boorish slob, which makes it a surprise that he stands out from the pack in Cleveland's sports community at all. But it's his bitchin'-from-the-barstool style that elevates his show beyond the rote drivel that occupies the airwaves elsewhere in town. Deride him if you will for meandering into more newsy -- sometimes misogynist -- topics, but the guy deserves credit for keeping conversations lively when lulls in sports excitement hit town. Triv's a well-rounded individual only in the physical sense, but even Cleveland sports fans should appreciate the fact that there's more to life than day-to-day groin pulls, hotties, and Jim Rome tour stops.
