    HANDS DOWN Anhder was the best one of them all…lots of enthusiasm and a GREAT personality…exactly what is needed for a radio talk show. He knows what he’s talking about and has the personality to make WFAN a success…you can just tell that the caller’s and people listening would love him…I’d definitley listen…CHOOSE ANHDER!!!!!!!

  • markset

    The kid Joe was the best no doubt. Ive been following the whole competition and the other guys had me falling asleep. Joe was hilarious and as a Met fan I agree with all his opinions.

  • Jen mac

    Joe was definately in my opinion the best natural born speaker. The others were boring, Joe was hilarious kept it interesting.

  • markset

    Ive been following this competition from the beginning and I think the kid Joe was definatly the best one. I saw all the auditions and most of the other guys had me falling asleep. Im a met fan and agree with his views. He happens to be very funny also and I think he got a great radio voice. Im glad he mentioned the show scrappers and I happened to catch the show tonite on spike and it was hysterical

  • Keith S.

    Joe gets my vote; he was informative and knowledgable and kept my interest. Although I’m a big time Yankee fan, I would have to agree with his comments and I wouldn’t mind hearing more from Joe.

  • Glenn

    Anhder really nailed it about the long suffering Jets fan’s mindset. Anhder was very relexed and has a great radio voice.

  • mark set

    joe was def the strongest presence out of the bunch. THE rest of the guys lost my attention and had me sleeping, Joe was funny and love his veiw on the mets. He also mentioned scrappers which i was able to catch on spike tonite and loved it.. very funny show. check it out

      why…..because he has a new york accent and a hundred fans saying “vote for joe”?

  • joe

    i think jow sounded the best and was the most confident.. he also spoke about something that was important rather then a preseason game… i think joe should be the new manager of the mets!

  • joe

    I really found myself agreeing with all of what Gregg had to say. Shut up, it’s preseason.

    Oh, by the way, Giants own NY. Huge win.

  • chris

    this guy joe was def the best!!!! the rest of them sounded way too nervous and joe sounded like hes been doin it for years… vote for Joe!!!

    I like Gregg a lot. Makes a good point plus backs it up with some facts. Seems pretty polished and isn’t just yelling into the mic.

  • Dan

    Gregg was awesome! The others were good, but man, this guy made a lot of valid points. Could see myself listening to this guy all the time. Two thumbs up!

  • Conf

    I thought Gregg was definitely the best. His voice is perfect for the radio and he knows his facts. There were no dull moments in either of his rants. Keep up the good work Gregg.

  • Jared

    I don’t know how anyone could’ve been bored by Gregg. He was on point, enthusiastic and seemed like he truly believed in what he was saying. This kid could make it big.

  • Raimondo

    Joe absolutely should be picked, colorful comments, held my interest the most, and made some excellent points on those Muts!!

  • Matt

    I think Gregg did the best job out of this bunch. He was very enthusiastic about his topic, and made some great points. Hope to see him at Bar A.

    I loved Gregg’s enthusiasm here. His youth and passion definitely came through and he’s definitely someone I’d want to listen to on the Fan.

  • paul

    joe was by far the best…. he has the voice for New York Radio and i would love to listen some more

    • A-Train

      Ok….now that we clearly see that this guy joe has every one of his friends….and their friends..,,and friends of their friends trying to plug votes for him……lets look at this figuratively now….ive watched ALL videos from ALL rounds….i dont know about everyone else but this guy ander dawson…….with the time he was given both times,has managed to touch on football,baseball,basketball….made all valid points and he never so much as hiccupped…..alot of guys are good…..but take a look and youll see what i mean people.

      • Dmitry Merener

        I don’t think that Joseph having his friends write comments has any relevance. Bottom line is that all contestants showed the videos to their friends and have their support. The truth is that his voice is undeniably good and he has charisma. I feel that his video stays on point, shows his knowledge of sports and flashes his sense of humor. He was not the only person with a good video but I feel he was the most entertaining and I do not think that you should take away the good points by suggesting that his friends are trying to rig this contest. Everybody has an opinion but I don’t think that this negativity is necessary.


    i think JOSEPH PIPI WAS THE BEST informative passionate and his voice is awesome for radio my vote is for him!!!

  • Tim

    I was a bit bored by Gregg, I lost focus.

    I liked Daniel, pretty solid approach.

    • rich

      I agree

  • GIl

    Dan is the man!

  • JEFF

    After going through the videos, I think Gregg was the best. He’s got the voice for radio and can stir up controversy. He looked very comfortable with the spotlight on him.

  • JETS2010

    I like the young kid Gregg….hes got the most passion, let’s see some fresh blood in the finals
