Ross was praised for the success of his weekend Radio 2 show, topping a poll compiled by 70 figures in the industry.
He is followed by fellow Radio 2 presenter Terry Wogan and Radio 4's John Humphrys at second and third respectively, while Xfm's Christian O'Connell comes in fourth (the highest placing for a commercial radio DJ).
Radio 1's Chris Moyles and Zane Lowe also ranked highly. This morning, Moyles' "hilarious" idea was to smack one of his co-presenters in the nuts. Cutting edge, that.
The top ten looks like this (source: Radio Times):
1 Jonathan Ross (Radio 2)
2 Terry Wogan (Radio 2)
3 John Humphrys (Radio 4)
4 Christian O'Connell (Xfm and Radio Five Live*)
5 Eddie Mair (Radio 4)
6 Peter Allen (Radio Five Live)
7 Chris Moyles (Radio 1)
8 Zane Lowe (Radio 1)
9 Jane Garvey (Five Live)
10 Chris Evans
*O'Connell is to move to Virgin
DiScuss: Are there many radio shows that you regularly tune into? Any presenters really worth their salaries? Does Jonathan Ross tire of arse-licking his celebrity guests on the telly, only to slate their next movie on Film 200X?
