Sean Hannity is at the top of the talk radio game. Last week, the Fox News star who also hosts a popular nationally syndicated radio show, topped the annual “Talkers Heavy Hundred” published by Talkers.com. 

Hannity’s show is distributed by Premiere Networks and is the second most-listened-to-commercial radio show with about 15 million listeners per week.

Talkers said the total number of listeners that a particular show garners is not the only criteria that judges look for. The website shows are measured by “courage, effort, impact, longevity, potential, ratings, recognition, revenue, service, talent and uniqueness.”

“We acknowledge that it is as much as art as science, and that the results are arguable,” the magazine added.

The annual list is considered to be a subjective power ranking of the nation’s top hosts.

Cumulus Media talk show host Dan Mandis accused White House Press Secretary Karin Jean-Pierre of being untrustworthy following repeated attempts to dodge questions regarding the federal raid on former President Donald Trump’s home. 

Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy peppered Jean-Pierre with questions Tuesday about whether the Biden administration was using law enforcement to go after political opponents.

“I did think it was really interesting for Karin Jean-Pierre to try to not answer anything as it relates to the raid on Mar-a-Lago,” said Mandis. 

Mandis was filling in for Vince Coglianese on News Talk 105.9 WMAL in Washington D.C. Mandis hosts the morning show on Cumulus-owned SuperTalk 99.7 WTN in Nashville, Tennessee. 

“The less that they (White House), the more suspicious they look,” Mandis added. “During yesterday’s press briefing, she (Jean-Pierre) refused to provide any answers whatsoever.”

Mandis said that Jean-Pierre issued a “no comment” 18 times during the briefing. 

“The White House Press Corps did try to get her to make some sort of a statement,” he said. 

“The Vince Coglianese Show” is heard daily on WMAL-FM 105.9 from 3-6 p.m.
