Who's the most annoying personality on NPR?
Celeste Headly is my pick. Not only is her voice like nails on chalkboard to me, she interrupts her guests constantly. Unfortunately, her show is the best thing on the radio during my commute.

I shut off my radio every Monday when that annoying know-nothing comes on with her 'analysis' which is always "This means that unless it doesn't, and oh by the way the Democrats are in trouble."

6. He's a smartass, for one thing...always inappropriately amused
with a sarcastic, sneering tone of voice. How I miss Bob Edwards!

8. he has always sounded totally scripted and almost like
a puppy dog in someone's lap.
Every now and then he has surprised me with a real question, but it ain't worth my time to listen for those rare occasions

9. She isn't necessarily annoying, but Meeeee-chelle Norris -
her name drives me nuts. Just sayin'

Kojo Nnamdi (DC-based show) strikes me as a pretentious twit.

Always nagging: lose weight, exercise, quick smoking, cut back on drinking, stop shooting up heroin.... It's just one thing after another! But seriously, his on-air personality drives me nuts. The phony laugh at anything Tom says drives me up the wall. I appreciate the information but dude, dial back the dose of whatever it is you're taking.

She just has that voice that screams "elitist asshole" to me, and her show backs it up. Because Dog Forbid you buy anything at a *gasp* supermarket! Only the unsophisticated proles do that!

14. I love Diane Rehm but ... that voice (and yes, I know it's dysphonia, so don't jump me)
It's just hard to listen to her. On the other hand, do a google image ... for an older lady she's SMOKIN'!!!
