Talkers magazine has released its annual list of the 100 most important talk radio hosts in the country. Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Ed Schultz are among the top ten.
The magazine's editors said that the selection process was "subjective." Aside from including all-star hosts, the goal was to reflect "the industry's diversity and total flavor as well as giving credit where credit is due," according to the editors. Qualifying factors included "courage, effort, impact, longevity, potential, ratings, recognition, revenue, service, talent and uniqueness."
