Okay, so they discontinued Pinball for Pitbulls; still, the ample selection goes on forever, with plenty of room for browsers to stay out of each other's way.

Best Public Access TV Show

Previous winner CapZeyeZ is joined by its creator's other show, Raw Time, maybe because host Dave Prewitt never talks down to the callers or the music. Both shows have been among the most consistent sources for breaking new bands, local and otherwise.

Best Radio Talk Show Host

Rehabilitated and re-ideologized, the increasingly conservative Pryor has everyone listening to him. Some fume, some swoon, some just "rush" along, but all the same, somebody is listening.

In a year of transition at KTBC, Rodman is one of the best things to emerge.

Best Weather Person

KTBC's Vernon is 1) so bright they call him Sonny; 2) last year's winner; 3) purveyor o' goofy quizzes; 4) all of the above.
