Best FM Radio Personality

Marty Riemer

When KMTT (103.7 FM, The Mountain) sacked beloved disc jockey Marty Riemer a couple years ago, the Auburn native didn't take to publicly trashing his longtime employer. Instead, he started a podcast out of the basement of his West Seattle home, and kept right on attracting the same eclectic, high-caliber mix of guests he booked when he had the power of commercial radio behind him. To its credit, The Mountain soon realized the error of its ways and hired Riemer back to work afternoon drive time. Now, aside from a recent summer sabbatical, Riemer mans both the basement podcast and the commercial gig, and much mutual enrichment has ensued. MIKE SEELY
