-->'''Tim:''' Well, that'd be three geriatrics called ''[[ActorAllusion The Goodies]]'' attempting to sing.
-->''(the clip is played again, slightly longer this time, with audience cheers in the background)''
-->'''Tim:''' Hold on, that can't be ''Series/TheGoodies'', that's applause...

** ''CarTalk'' always ends with this:
--->'''Tom or Ray Magliozzi''': Well, it's happened again - you've wasted another perfectly good hour listening to CarTalk... and even though Roger Clemens stabs his radio with a syringe whenever he hears us say it, this is NPR: National Public Radio.

* HowardStern lives this trope on the show. While he savages other celebrities, rival radio hosts and his own crew, he also spends a lot of time making fun of his small penis (though later he found out he's actually fairly normal, he's just reall tall and it looks small on him), his big nose, his nuerosis, etc.

* LA morning show hosts Kevin and Bean on KROQ get a lot of mileage out of criticizing the production value of their show, the skills of their co-workers, and their own idiosyncrasies. This was one of the big tonal differences between them and their long-time rivals, Mark and Brian on KLOS, who spared few opportunities to express pride in their show and comic timing.

* Radio disc jockeys are often self-aware enough to realise that what they do can be regarded as a "slight" art-form, depending on reflected glory as they play the music - piggy-backing on other people's genuine creativity. One or two take refuge in pomposity or hide behind a shell of monumental ego. But many radio DJ's have the humility to accept they will be the butt of other people's jokes, and some [[ComplimemtFishing go so far as to invite parody or jokes at their expense]]. Creator/TonyBlackburn is a noble example of a man who realises his fame depends on teetering on the verge of self-parody, and who happily accepts gentle digs and jokes at his expense.

* ''HamishAndAndy'': When Hamish got fat many jokes were made about it. Hamish made more jokes about it then Andy

* On ''Mike and Mike in the morning'', Mike's (Golic) ability to laugh off Mike's (Greenberg) zingers about his weight when Greenberg was called in by ESPN to as a guest host was what convinced Golic's wife that Greenberg was the right person to get the job full time. Fifteen years later, Greenberg is jokingly referred to as "Golic's Other Wife" and takes it in stride.

* ''Radio/ImSorryIHaventAClue'' lived and breathed this trope, with the late Chairman Humph being baffled that anyone was listening to this rubbish. Chairman Jack continues this tradition.
