We continue our Top 10 Countdown with #8 today.
Doug McIntyre called his show Red Eye Radio long before Greg Gutfeld created his Red Eye TV show for Fox News. In fact, Gutfeld should probably pay McIntyre residuals for use of the name.
Doug is nationally syndicated, but we bent the rules a little to include him on this list for a three reasons. First,he’s only in 26 markets and once you get past New York and Los Angeles you haven’t heard of most of them (places like Searcy, Arkansas, Show Lo, Arizona and Wahpeton, North Dakota). Second, we owe Doug a favor because he interviewed the Editor and the Administrator on his former Los Angeles morning show when we were just starting IHTM. Consider yourself paid, Doug. And third, he’s a great freakin’ talent who wold be a lot higher on this list if we weren’t cheating to have him on it at all.
Ken Levine, writer/producer/director of shows like MASH, Cheers, Frasier and too many others to mention and a former radio guy said, “Red Eye Radio is the best syndicated all-night show. The man can talk on any subject. He’s a cross between a 5-time Jeopardy champion and Jean Shepherd.” Another top talk show host told us, “He’s the smartest guy on radio.”
Here’s a whole hour of Redeye Radio from just a few days ago:
