Welcome to Boston.com’s Sports Q, our daily conversation, initiated by you and moderated by Chad Finn, about a compelling topic in Boston sports. Here’s how it works: You submit questions to Chad through Twitter, Facebook, email, his Friday chat, and any other outlet you prefer. He’ll pick one each day (except for Saturday) to answer, then we’ll take the discussion to the comments. Chad will stop by several times per day to navigate. But you drive the conversation.
Read your Michael Felger feature. Clearly you think highly of him as a sports-radio host. But is he the best in Boston? I still think it’s Glenn Ordway. No one is better at conducting a show. – Kevin T.
I do think it’s Felger, for reasons that were touched upon to some degree in the story. He knows how to engage and antagonize the audience (an annoying but effective approach), he’s self-deprecating, just when you think he’s predictable he does something unexpected, and he’s sustained the success, along with Mazz, for a half-dozen years now.
I’m not sure I’d have Ordway in the top five unless we’re talking 1999, though WEEI’s midday show has found its stride lately. I think that’s more due to the chemistry between Christian Fauria and Lou Merloni, though.
If I had to put together a top five, it would probably be Felger, Kirk Minihane, Fred Toucher, Michael Holley, and either Gerry Callahan or Rich Shertenlieb, in no particular order.
But what do you guys think? Who is the best sports radio host in Boston? I’ll see you in the comments.
