Morning and evening commute’s around Knoxville can be a boring crapshoot at times. But they can be livened up if you’re tuned in to a local radio show.
Folks like Hallerin Hill, Andy & Alison and Doc, Jeff and Heather can ramble on for days and keep you listening. Which leads us to ask:
Who is your favorite Knoxville radio personality?

I only recently became a fan of talk radio and I’m becoming a fan of Hallerin Hill.
2 main categories:
Non-sports: Gotta go with Phil Williams. He’s an institution in these parts.
Sports: Chalk up a vote for Tony Basilio.
Gotta go with Hallerin, but I can do without the callers…..Love the Anything’s Possible
Local NPR stations aren’t really “personality” shops, but I do like Matt Shafer Powell and Chrissy Keuper.
Mike in the Morning (Mike Clark) on Praise 96.3 WJBZ! He’s the best!
Frank Murphy on Star 102.1 would be my next choice if it was only him on the air.
On NPR, Dan Berry’s good for a laugh too 🙂
Basilio. Actually, I like Beano, Small Mike (The Cattleman), and TR, but they are all on Basilio’s show.
Toss up between Hallerin and Phil. Love sports radio but turn it off when they cut from Colin Cowherd’s show at 11. Can’t stand local sports radio.
Beth HAYNES. Sorry.
Tony Basilio and Will West. Would love to hear those two guys together in the mornings.
Tony Basilio and Will West together in the mornings would kick butt as a Sports Talk Radio Team. I think with a new coach, why can’t we shake up the talk radio world as well?
I have to pick Phil as my favorite…he’s KIN!!
My favorite has always been and always will be Claude Thomplinson on WIVK
