Talkers Magazine

Talkers Magazine

"Talkers Magazine" is a trade industry publication related to talk radio in the United States. Its slogan is "The Bible of Talk Radio and the New Talk Media". In addition to radio, it covers talk shows on broadcast and cable television as well as Internet-only shows and podcasting.

Twice a year, "Talkers" publishes rankings of the top-rated radio talk shows; these rankings are often quoted in newspapers and other publications. "Talkers" also publishes a yearly "Heavy Hundred" list of the top 100 radio talk shows across the country. Beginning in 2006, it published the "Talkers 250" to expound on the "Heavy Hundred", listing #101 to #250, though in alphabetical order by genre instead of order of importance. In 2002, it published a list of the top 25 radio and television talk shows each of all time.

The magazine was launched in Summer 1990 by current Publisher Michael Harrison. It publishes 10 issues per year out of Springfield, Massachusetts.The magazine is owned by Focus Communications.

The magazine's online counterpart is Talkers Magazine Online, which provides limited selected content from the print version.
