Time was when Roda was the crassest DJ this side of Howard Stern. The afternoon Happy Hour was too shot up with testosterone even to qualify as a guilty pleasure. But then Roda was given a voice in the Bowl Championship Series. Almost from the day he humbly announced on-air that he had been selected for college football's prestigious Harris Poll, there was a palpable shift in his approach. Talk of Playboy centerfolds vanished, and Roda demonstrated a firm commitment to making his bones as the most ammoed-up sports talker in town. Whether deriding Maurice Carthon's version of an NFL offense or Mike Brown's guard rotation, the Road Man has become a powerful independent voice, offering useful criticism of the Browns, Cavs, and Indians. In a city where sports-talkers crib too many talking points from The Plain Dealer's sleepy reportage, Roda continually offers fresh insights. Happy Hour With Kenny Roda, 3-7 p.m.
