I have grown increasingly annoyed with most New York area sports radio.

At WFAN, Boomer and Carton in the morning are obnoxious, especially Carton, who loves to make terrible calls and then act as though he did not.

Mike Francesca, WFAN's key afternoon man, has grown tiresome. He is obnoxious, grouchy and loves to get into shouting matches with callers just because they do not agree with him. He also dismisses fantasy football, noting he has no concept of today's fan.

Then there is ESPN Radio in New York, where Mike and Mike in the Morning are good, but limited as national voices in our local market. Elsewhere on that station, Stephen A. Smith is a blowhard and Mike Lupica, the columnist from the New York Daily News, has a whiney annoying voice and loves to jump on the bandwagon.

Of course, Michael Kay, a lousy TV baseball announcer, is like fingernails on a blackboard on afternoon drive time radio.

The Yankee announcers, on both televison and radio, are either inept or obnoxious. Especially John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman. They either have horrible voices or error-filled comments.
