Best Sports-Talk Host (2002)

Mike Haynes
The Fan

Mike Haynes, the voice of the Colorado Avalanche, doesn't have a standard sports-talk gig, but before each game he hosts Between the Pipes, a preview show in which he takes calls, answers e-mails and otherwise demonstrates his enthusiasm and expertise. The show is as entertaining as it is informative; both hockey experts and novices usually learn something new every time Haynes takes to the air. And that's what good talk radio is supposed to be all about.
