Love him or hate him, there's no doubt John DePetro knows how to stir and engage his audience.

The East Greenwich resident also has earned the distinction of hosting the best talk show in Rhode Island, according to Rhode Island Monthly in their annual Best of Rhode Island contest.

"I am honored the people have chosen me, voted for me, and continue to support the work I do on WPRO, " DePetro said. " I have always wanted to do a talk show that was entertaining and informative, and it is rewarding that so many people enjoy my work, and took the time to vote me 'best talk show.'"

The award follows DePetro's winning the 2014 Associated Press award for Best Talk Show and he has been filling in for Michael Savage on Savage's nationally syndicated show.

I wonder how many ballots his wife Kristen filled out in order for him to win.

Unbelievable....The man is evil

I didn't realize he had been filling in for Savage as well. They are BOTH evil. Perhaps some find his show entertaining, but I am not one of them. After all of the transgressions he's made and been temporarily suspended from his job, I think his station should fire him permanently. But I suppose his brand of nastiness and negativity is profitable.

What? He should work for NPR, where NO ONE would here him?
