Best Local Sports Radio Host

Chris Dimino

Staff Pick

The format is simple: Four guys and a chick, and all the sports talk you want to hear. “Mayhem In The A.M.” on WQXI-AM (790 The Zone) is the only radio show that can get John Smoltz out of bed at 5:30 the morning after he’s pitched, and get him to talk about going one-on-one with Barry Bonds the night before. The show has five strong personalities, but we spotlight CHRIS DIMINO. Not because he’s the guy they call “Rain Man” for a memory that can pull up every obscure stat you could ever imagine, but because he’s the station’s most skilled interviewer. Aside from morning duties, he hosts a one-hour pregame show before every Braves home game. Dimino is also one of the few radio guys you actually see at games checking out the action in person when he should be home sleeping: Fer chrissakes, he’s on the air at 6 in the morning!
