Best Radio Personality
Beloved 89.3 the Current DJ Mary Lucia went through some serious shit in 2015. She returned to the airwaves in November following a seven-month leave to deal with the legal and emotional fallout of being stalked. "Been a long time since I rock and rolled," Lucia said in an open letter announcing her comeback. "Thanks as always for your kindness and thoughtfulness. Your friend and mine, Looch." It's a treat having the longtime Twin Cities radio personality back during the weekday drive home. Her love of rock 'n' roll, cats, and "No Apology" tracks is infectious, as is her effortlessly cool demeanor. The outpouring of love for Looch over the past year proved she's more than just a DJ — she's a local institution, a genuine bad-ass, and a friend.
