Everyone has their favorite broadcaster and sports based personality, and now we know who is the most beloved in the market overall in certain roles.

Channel Media and Market Research survey was released on Wednesday and leading the way as the most popular TV analyst or commentator was Dennis Eckersley with NESN, while Boston Globe scribe Dan Shaughnessy was tabbed as the most supported sportswriter in the region.

Eckersley didn’t make any fans with Red Sox players over the past year and had a dust up with starter David Price earlier in the season.  That didn’t stop fans and consumers from respecting the Hall of Famer with this most popular designation.

Among the other personalities listed was Michael Felger as the most popular host, his show “Felger & Mazz” named the most popular show, and Tom Caron was selected in the TV host category.
