Black Talkers releases 2010 'Talented 10' in radio

By Staff

ATLANTA, Nov. 8, 2010, 9 a.m. - Black Talkers, a Web site covering the black talk media industry, today published its annual list of the 10 top black radio talk show hosts in America. 

This year, the "Talented 10" list is a two week long survey of talk radio listeners with nearly 600 votes cast. Listeners selected their favorite talk star from a list of 40 names and could even write-in candidates. Listeners, however, could not vote twice and could not view the results until now.

The 2009 list was selected by Black Talkers founder, syndicated news/talk host and Editor and Publisher of Redding News Review Robert "Rob" Redding Jr.

"Since Black Talkers now has a sizable amount of traffic, it is time for the listeners and not one person to decided," Redding said.

Below are the 2010 Black Talkers "Talented 10" (Radio):
