** Also the later B-108 Morning Show sketches, with Richard and The Buffalo (Creator/TaranKillam and Bobby Moynihan), two PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy jocks who host a hip-hop show on a small town Minnesota station.

He's like Radio/AlexJones mated with a [=LARPer=] (with severe [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny ADD]]) and beat it with a copy of ''Literature/AtlasShrugged''.

* Don Imus had his MSNBC simulcast of his ''Imus In The Morning'' canceled in 2007 after he called the Rutgers women's basketball team a bunch of "nappy-headed hos." He has since bounced from RFD-TV to Fox Business News while simulcast on WABC radio in New York.

* Don Imus was something of a TropeMaker in TheSeventies, working his way up from Palmdale, California to Cleveland to New York with all kinds of wacky schtick like prank calls, fake newscasts and recurring characters. After becoming a RecoveredAddict he shifted the show to start including serious discussions of politics and current events alongside the usual comedy, but he still has a habit of letting his tongue get him in trouble.

* Alan J from Sega's Ferrari F355 Challenge and Top Skater is this in spades. He even references {{Outrun}} by saying that it's a brilliant song to drive to with a hot blonde in the car.

* During the month of October, Radio/OpieAndAnthony usually run their "Jocktober" feature, where they listen to (and mercilessly poke fun at) radio morning shows from around the country.
** Ant used to joke that, one of these days, the fans they'd cultivated over the decades ("peckahs!") would turn around and devour [=OaA=] alive. In 2014, Opie took over the show in a suspected ''coup de tat'' while Ant got fired over some racist Twitter rants, retreating to a safety of his Long Island "compound" where he would continue to broadcast said racist rants. At first, the [[{{Website/Reddit}} r/opieandanthony]] subreddit was divided on which host to root for...\\\
...until the "peckahs" united in their hatred of ''both'' and launched their very own Jocktober targeting both Opie and Ant.
* [[Series/TheAdamCarollaShow Adam Carolla]] loves to parody this. One of his regular targets and impressions is the morning drive-time DJ who is too excited to be reading weather weather weather, news top of the hour, at the half hour, traffic traffic traffic weather etc. Also the stereotypical strip club DJ (Him imitating them with a string of strip club cliches, always ending with "Jade, stage five!" while Bald Bryan plays a '''Cherry Pie''' music bed).

* The UrExample is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murray_the_K Murray the K]], who was a major radio personality from TheFifties to TheSeventies. Given the era he worked in, he wasn't so much vulgar or abusive as slap-happy and a JiveTurkey.

** Anthomy Cumia got bounced by Sirius FM following an incident where he was attacked by a black hooker in NYC. He then tweeted about the incident, and his allegedly racist tweets caused enough flak for SiriusXM to fire him. Once he left, Opie (Ant's producer and Ed [=McMahon=] flak) completely took over the show, and it became clear that Ant needs [=OaA=] as much as [=OaA=] needs him. The Opester is a capable producer, while Ant plainly has no idea how to organize a show. Opie is not a natural comedian; Ant is a born comedian with uncanny timing, but he needs a co-host (something he currently lacks) to keep him in check. Ant and Opie have also done many of the "HACK BITS" [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytrBCLsLDNs they used to scream about.]] (Ketchup contest? Really?)
** O&A built a very specific, niche audience who wanted to just see people fail and laugh at them. However, this was only a small, but fiercely loyal, portion of their fans, called "The Pests". Most O&A listeners were more interested in current events, film discussion, occasional sports talk, and listening to friends tease eachother and tell jokes.
* Bubba the Love Sponge. A B-list radio host turned backstage interviewer on ''Wrestling/{{TNA}} Impact!'' in 2010 almost entirely because of the influence of his good friend Wrestling/HulkHogan. The idea of a professional public speaker getting an interviewer slot isn't entirely without merit, but Bubba carried over the smarmy, condescending speaking style he (and most morning talk show [=DJs=], for that matter) used on his show and tried his level best to get over at the expense of the talent he was supposed to push and build up. A pro wrestling interviewer is supposed to be a piece of walking, talking furniture, completely unnoticeable except when appropriately reacting to whatever the talent he or she is interviewing has to say. But Bubba would often be confrontational with wrestlers in his interview segments, acting as though he were an "equal", arguing against and cutting down whatever his interviewees had to say and generally deflating whatever buildup or goal the interview was meant to accomplish. It was made worse by Hogan's constant patronage, virtually ensuring that Bubba had constant ProtectionFromEditors in effect and shielding him from any consequences. It got to the point where fans in the live audiences would boo immediately whenever Bubba was shown on screen.\\\
He finally got what was coming to him, along with a hefty dose of LaserGuidedKarma, after an [=PR=] fiasco where he said "Fuck Haiti!" in the wake of the devastating earthquake that struck the country. He got into a physical confrontation with female TNA wrestler Wrestling/KiaStevens, giving an extremely backhanded apology for his remarks, and then confronted and openly insulted Stevens when she appeared on one of his friend's radio shows to talk about the whole thing. TNA finally gave him the sack after this whole debacle, and arranged for Wrestling/MickFoley to punch him in the face in his last appearance. A couple years later, he was involved in another scandal after setting his (now former) friend Hogan up with his own wife and secretly filming the encounter with a hidden camera that was eventually leaking onto the internet, presumably with the thought of blackmailing him later on.
* [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 Michael J. Nelson's]] essay collection ''Mind Over Matters'' has a chapter titled "Wacky Morning Misrepresentation" devoted entirely to taking the piss out of Morning Zoo show [=DJ=]s.
* Tim Westwood, an embarrassing 'wigga' who refers to himself as 'The big dog'.
* Radio/ChrisMoyles, whose show mostly consists of playing top 40 music and news, and making fun of his cohosts. The show is quite funny on occasion but it doesn't change the fact it is lowbrow humour.
** Things got a lot worse with Nick Grimshaw replaced Chris Moyles. Instead of commenting on things that relate to the average Radio 1 listener he goes on about all the celebs he hangs out with in his personal life. All this can go on for 20 minutes or even more.
* Chris Evans ([[NamesTheSame not]] [[Creator/ChrisEvans that one]]), who [[ReplacementScrappy replaced]] [[Radio/TerryWogan the most popular morning radio program in Britain]], is notorious for being one of these.
** Long-time fans of Wogan, while having no great beef against Evans, tend to find him unbearably shouty and over-excited too early in the morning, compared to Wogan's more low-key laid-back approach.
* Lex and Terry are notable goofballs from Jacksonville who have almost every show they've done full of immature sex jokes.
* The Greaseman is another case from Jacksonville, he is infamously known for saying, regarding Martin Luther King Day: "Why don't we plug four more and get the whole week off?"

** You can't spend years, YEARS, telling the audience that everyone and everything in radio sucks and make yourselves above it all and then expose yourself just like you exposed everyone else. O&A built a very specific, niche audience who wanted to just see people fail and laugh at them. However, all that's null and void now as most of the vitriolic things they said about radio people could easily be applied to them, and the sheer irony of that chews at your ear if you try to listen.
** Never the most scintillating of hosts, Opie (now a senior citizen with a million-dollar home) struck gold one year when he took a slice of cake from a homeless man and stomped on it. (The homeless man was allegedly paid 100 bucks for his role in the stunt.) He's been trying to recapture the magic of that moment ever since: mocking a man with no tongue; forcing an amputee to pick up change; smashing a street musician's guitar; offering an autistic man a ride, then cackling and screeching off before he can get in the car; and so on. "Opie" is [[DiscoDan an outdated caricature]], and yet he persists in making himself out to be a well-connected piece of shit bully.
