BEST MOVE FROM BAD BOY TO BOSS (2006)
Willie B. KBPI
Stephen Meade was once known as Willie B. Hung, and although he eventually dropped the last portion of this anatomical moniker, he still earned a reputation as the biggest dick on the Denver airwaves, thanks to a pair of criminal convictions a few years back (for participating in an ill-advised chicken toss and leading a four-wheel-drive excursion on private land). No one would have mistaken Willie for executive material back then, yet the folks at Clear Channel-Denver named him program director of KBPI anyhow -- and since assuming the post, he's kept up the ratings at his hard-rocking station without hitting the rocks himself. Hung is up, and likely to stay that way.
