Best Radio Personality (2014)

Paul Allen

Paul Allen got his start at KFAN when Jesse Ventura decided to run for governor back in 1998. More than 15 years later, it's hard to turn on a Twin Cities radio without hearing his voice. In addition to serving as the longtime host of KFAN's morning show, P.A. is the official play-by-play voice of the Vikings, does radio and TV spots for a number of local businesses, and even calls the horse races down at Canterbury Park. And for someone who is from D.C. and spent a number of years living in California, P.A. has developed a remarkable affinity for the local teams, especially the Vikings — if Minnesota sports fans were polled as to their top association with the word "homer," P.A. would be at the head of the list. Goes to show that being a true Minnesotan doesn't require being born here.
