Best Radio Sports-Talk Host (2003)
As Joni Mitchell sang, you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone. In recent years, Clough has co-hosted The Fan's morning-drive program, and while he could be cranky and curmudgeonly, he also brought rare perspective and intelligence to a medium that's frequently lacking in both. Clough was replaced on the show by Lou From Littleton, an inveterate homer whose shtick is wearing thinner with each passing day. Fortunately, Clough has been moved to an evening slot that, though a little harder to find, still allows him to present the spicy views and incisive opinions that set him apart from other sports-talk yakkers.
