    for me it's NPR's Daniel Schorr. sure, he's had a long and respected career, but time hasn't been good to his voice. he sounds like an old, tired, wheezy Droopy the Dog and I have to turn the radio off when he comes on

    I also can't stand listening to people who have excessive mouth noise . . . like I can hear their tongue and cheeks moving around like somebody is stirring a bowl of jello . . . just plain icky!

    ESPN's Freddie Coleman and Amy Lawrence are my choices. Can't stand them at all.

    John Sterling, and it's not because he's the Yankees broadcaster. I can't stand his catch phrases and the way he says them. I would hate it if he were my team's broadcaster. I can almost imagine him saying something like this:

    "It's an a-bomb... from Al-Qaeda! Jihadists win! Thhhhhheeeee Jihadists win!"

    Supposedly even the Yankees fans can't stand him.

    When I lived with my father, he liked to listen to The Diane Rehm Show on NPR, and I simply couldn't stand to be in the room when he did. I've heard people described as having "a face for radio," but Rehm has a voice for print. An unbearable, creaking whine of a voice -- ughh.

    Jeremy Vine on Radio 2. Everything sounds like a confrontation with him. I loathe listening to him.

    I agreee. I sounds like she's in the midst of some sort of massive stroke and/or seizure. Every day.

    Michael Savage. Vile man with a wretched voice. Jerry Doyle of B5 fame is also a douchebag.

    I can confirm.

    I am a Yankees fan and I can't stand him.

    The only one I hate more is his current partner Suzyn (Y! Y!! Seriously!) Waldman. Gravel-voiced shrew...

    While his knowledge of music is amazing, his voice after a while becomes irritating.

    No. Michael Savage just has a horrible voice. His political views just happen to be just to the right of insane in addition to that.

    Pretty much any FM morning show, especially any variation of Monsters/Crazy Guys/Morning Gang/whatever you want to call them. Also any and all "Bubba and Elroy" type shows. Since I listen to sat radio and the ole iPod, I rarely have to ever listen to that stuff.

    Other things that would make me run screaming...

    All callers that are on cellphones that keep breaking up. If I were a host, there'd be a zero tolerance policy with those kind of calls. You start to break up, you're cut off, no 10-20 seconds wasted on your static.
