Jason Barrett's sportsradiopd.com website has released its list of the Top 20 best sports morning shows.
The list is based on votes of a panel consisting of 53 radio industry members. Barrett points out each have their different insights and preferences, and may or may not favor members of their own company or programs they’re most familiar with.

Barrett himself does not participate in the voting.
In order to measure the collective view of the sports radio industry, a point system is in place. Each 1st place vote is worth 20 points, and a point is deducted for each lower position, with a 20th place vote being the lowest at 1 point.

- An established track record in the format
- Quality content delivered on a consistent basis
- Finished 2016 employed at the station
- Spent more than six months with the radio station
