Free Radio is a television show, created by Lance Krall and Rory Rosegarten. The show originated on VH1, but has also played on Comedy Central, and Super Channel (Canada). It stars Lance Krall, prominent for his role on The Joe Schmo Show, and Anna Vocino, who also starred with Krall on The Lance Krall Show. The show focuses on a dysfunctional radio station, KBOM. Krall plays a moronic intern turned moronic DJ when KBOM's regular shock jock, Rip Rebel, defects to satellite radio. Lance eventually gets his own show entitled Moron in the Morning. Real celebrities guest star as themselves with Lance, who often either does not realize who they are or mixes them up with other celebrities on the air. Most of the dialogue is improvised.[citation needed]

Starting on November 16, 2009, re-runs of Free Radio began airing in the US on Comedy Central following The Colbert Report. It is currently airing on the Australian Comedy Channel.

Characters[edit]

Lance Krall as Lance, a former intern at KBOM who gets a job as a radio host, after the former host, Rip Rebel, leaves. He becomes inexplicably popular due to his ignorance and bold stupidity while interviewing celebrities. The station dubs Lance's show "Moron in the Morning."

Anna Vocino as Anna, Lance's co-host on "Moron in the Morning." She is often annoyed by Lance's uninformed questions to their guests and his on-air antics, but enjoys the success the show has acquired.

Brian Huskey as James Reed, the manager of KBOM and boss of both Lance and Anna. James was against "Moron in the Morning" from the start, but due to its success and pressure from listeners & the owners of KBOM, he has been forced to keep the show on the air.

Sarah Baker as Sarah a.k.a. Emo Sarah, KBOM's goth/emo receptionist.

Gerry Bednob as Bling Bling Shelton, Lance's inept talent manager.
