Best Local Country Radio Personality Phoenix 2008 - Dave Pratt, KMLE Country 108-FM

Redheaded radio jock Dave Pratt has been prattling across Valley airwaves since 1981, when he took a job with local rock station 98 KUPD as host of Pratt in the Morning. More than two decades later, Pratt left KUPD (which he calls "the best career decision I ever made" in his bio on davepratt.net) and joined the staff of KMLE. Pratt's morning show was wildly successful on KUPD, and so it has been on KMLE as well, despite the jump from rock to country.

Pratt retains his decades-old nickname as the "Morning Mayor," and continues to be prominent in the local community, raising money for numerous charities, becoming part owner of Alice Cooper'stown restaurant/venue in Phoenix, and adding his witty banter and industry insights to the airwaves, every morning from 5 to 9 a.m.

I am so very sorry to see Dave go. I loved the show. I don't know if I will listen to Tim & Willy. I didn't listen to them on the other station before. Bring Dave Back.

The radio station is giving up quality based on cost. Sometimes - it this case - quality is worth the cost. Haven't you ever heard of the old saying "you have to spend money to make money"?

I am so sorry to see Dave Pratt and Stacy Brooks leave the KMLE...it was the show that made my day, and KMLE will never be the same...I probably will start listening to another station now...I am sure I will...same for Stu Evans...I will miss him too. Think that was bad decisions...but only my opinion..
