In any category of life, who or what do you think is overrated, and who or what is underrated?

JB King, KLUC: Overrated: Games of Thrones….and Flaming Hot Cheetos, I just don’t get it. Underrated: Brockmire.


Java Joel, WAKS: Overrated: Callout, Beyonce and Nutella. Underrated: Secret weapon records, Hall & Oates and coconut water (especially the kind with pineapple).

Jonathan Reed, WNOK: Overrated: Naming the artist would get me in trouble! Underrated: LeBron James. People hate on him without having enough perspective of what he actually does to help his team win.

Reid, KZZP/KMXP: Overrated: The Kardashians. Underrated: YouTube influencers. The people who host movie reviews and unboxing videos.


Kobi, WNRW/WLGX: Duke is overrated every year! Underrated: Max. He is crazy talented and has the potential to be a BIG star.

Gina Gray, WERO: All social media and texting is highly overrated, and the true art of being able to carry on a conversation at dinner is very underrated.

Valentine, WBHT: Reality TV is the clear winner of most overrated. Underrated, I would have to go with free time. We really don’t enjoy and take advantage of those rare occasions.

Kevin Kash, WIYY: Kardashian family overrated. Kash family underrated.

Jon Zellner. iHeartMedia: Social media friends are overrated. Real friends are underrated.

Mike McVay, Cumulus Media: Spending time with your family is underrated. Working out every day is overrated.


Jonathan Shuford, WRVW: Chipotle is overrated.

Dom Theodore, Radio Animal Media Strategies: Detroit is underrated. I’m probably biased because it’s my hometown, but it’s a great city that never gets the credit it deserves.

Kevin Cruise, KUDD: Trump is overrated and Snapchat is underrated.


Mike “OD” O’Donnell, WKRZ: The NFL draft and talking about the potential is very overrated. My PD/MD Fish Boy is underrated!

Sassy, WKXJ: Overrated: peanut butter, sex (I’ve never had it), living in California or Florida, baby girls named “Ashley” or “Taylor,” and underwear. Yes, I’m not wearing any as you read this aren’t you jealous? Underrated: BTS, a DJ named Sassy, Brian Kelly (smart as hell) and my boss Justin Cole and his dog Bailey.

Fish Boy, WKRZ: Streaming is overrated, and underrated is the value of locality in radio.

Mike Miller, WZFT: Overrated: The Kardashians and sleep! Underrated: WWE!

Brian Mack, WXXL: Overrated are those George HW Bush gold glasses that were popular in the late eighties are making a comeback and they’re not fashionable at all. Underrated are the New York Mets.

Kobe, WWHT: The establishment is overacted, and listening to your gut is underrated.

Brian Michel, iHeartMedia / Atlanta: The NFL is way overrated. All that worrying about drafts and trades and for what? The average play in the NFL lasts four seconds. There are about 133 total plays per game. There’s a whopping 11 minutes that ball is actually in play for the ENTIRE game. The NHL is way underrated. The history, the action, the speed, the players…all of it…oh and the clock doesn’t run unless the puck is in play.

R Dub! Z90: Let’s talk travel, since it’s my other passion. Dubai is definitely overrated. It’s one of my least favorite places to visit. Iran is underrated. Seriously, I’m not joking. It’s got some of the friendliest folks ever, and some absolutely beautiful scenery.

Tony Waitekus, WHTQ: Overrated: Social media. Underrated: Talking to people face to face.

Chris Michaels, FM100: Starbucks coffee is overrated, and the cast iron skillet is underrated for cooking. I can survive with that one skillet.

Heather Deluca, WSJO: Overrated: Kanye West. Underrated: James Spader.
