Best Homegrown Radio: Morning Show, WNCX-FM 98.5

There's hope for the future of homegrown radio in 98.5 FM's WNCX Morning Show, featuring Mud, Mihalik, and Mike. For the first time in 14 years, the classic-rock station's morning show is in the hands of true Clevelanders. Host Mud graduated from Beachwood High School and was later booted out of Ohio University. Co-host Kim Mihalik joined the show after eight years riding shotgun with WTAM afternoon host Mike Trivisonno. And former WMMS newsman Mike Olszewski literally wrote the book on Cleveland radio, Radio Daze: Stories From the Front in Cleveland's FM Air Wars.
