She's horrible and should be taken off the air...I've heard few voices on the air that are both shrill and guttural...between her and Savage watch the afternoon drive numbers drop...she needs to keep selling real estate or working as a hostess at Outback.

I doubt it. I looked it up, and Maria Leaf is the PM Drive Anchor/Editor at WMAL, which means she probably has a lot more going on her life than responding to trolls on FFXU.

WMAL listener here. My suggestions for Maria;

-lose the strident-sounding delivery style. This can't possibly be your natural speaking voice. Work on adding some softness and speak more lyrically. Voice comes off as staccato now and conveys harshness. I'd have you speak at a higher register and use more breath. You're speaking in the front part of your mouth with a tight delivery that sounds hollow - use the back of your throat and add in a breath for a softer sound.

- go brunette, Maria! You'd look stunning with a frame of dark auburn hair and maybe some subtle red highlights to frame your face.

- shape your brows

Maria had a rough day on Friday - I was worried! Wonder if she was stifling a sneeze or coughing fit because she did not have the same voice. Came in late on broadcast news and then stumbled (Barbara Harrison-style) which NEVER happens to Maria. Her voice seemed garbled and she sounded unusually distracted.

Maria,

With deference to Maria, I have discontinued listening to WMAL because I have become sick and tired of, either, turning down the volume or turning off the radio the very moment I hear' "I'm MARIA LEAF, WMALLLL !" Really, there are those that should not attempt to do work that ultimately leads to losing listeners.

I used to be a devote listener of WMAL, but Maria Leaf's voice is really impossible to listen to. I make it a point to turn the volume down at every top and bottom of the hour, so as not to be forced through the aural meat-grinder that is her enunciation.

The blend between her nasal delivery and her pretentious syllabic uptalk is just plain brutal.

Maria, please talk on the radio like you do in real life. I have no idea who hired you, but I can guarantee you you're losing a lot of listeners.

I spent a lifetime in radio as a dj, pd GSM and GM. She is by far the WORST I've ever heard on the air in any market large or small. I flip to WTOP when she comes on. What I don't understand is she is so bad the rating books CERTAINLY show the tuneout when she's on. I can hear they have tried to work with her to change her breathing and inflection but there is not enough improvement to justify keeping her.

She has the worst radio voice EVER. Annoying, irritating, unpleasant, and fake. The radio has to be muted or turned off whenever she comes on. It makes me cringe, and I hope WMAL wakes up and gets rid of her. I actually thought she would've been gone by now. Can't be soon enough. It's always a welcomed relief when anyone else is subbing.

God, I'm glad I found this forum thread. I thought I couldn't possibly be the only one thinking that Maria Leaf does not belong in front of a radio microphone--whatever her other journalistic talents.

I mean, the woman's voice is horribly, stridently, and objectively annoying. The nasal voice as well as that bumpy STAC-CA-TO-DE-LI-VE-RY has made me the fastest mute button in the West. As soon as I hear "I'M MA-RI-A-LE-AF, DOU-BLE-YOU-EMM-AY-ELLLLLLLL" I can't help uttering a loud imprecation as the unknown idiot who thought she had a swell radio voice and flinging my hand onto the mute button.

I mean, don't the higher-ups at WMAL see the ratings? Can they be that high?

MARIA LEAF'S VOICE
Posted by: M.J. ()
Date: August 01, 2016 12:24PM

Maria,

You should have voice lessons. Your delivery (voice) sounds angry, arrogant, nasally and boosted with testosterone.

For many years I'd tune in WMAL to hear Plante, Rush, and Savage (Hannity). Because of Maria Leaf, I have had to tune in other stations via SONOS. I could not be any happier. Honestly, I would tune her OFF every single time the stations went to commercial. NO LONGER !

My apologies to WMAL.

HERE IS SOMETHING TO READ :

"KDKA-AM (1020) news reporter Maria Leaf is no longer with the station. She was let go in what Michael Young, CBS Radio Pittsburgh senior vice president and market manager, described as a restructuring of the station's news coverage. No other news staffers were affected by the move. Ms. Leaf joined the station in 2007.

And longtime KDKA reporter Barbara Boylan, who has been off on extended medical leave, is expected to return to work this month, Mr. Young said.

New talk show for WGBN
The Black Political Empowerment Project, also called B-PEP, is launching a new community-oriented talk show on gospel station WGBN-AM (1150).

"B-PEP Community Moments" will air twice a month -- from noon to 1 p.m. on the first and last Saturday of the month, starting Saturday.

The program hosts will be B-PEP assistant civic engagement coordinator Melvin Pollard and B-PEP assistant treasurer Ken Huston.

The station is expanding beyond the gospel format it has had since 1992 and now carries a mix of music and talk.

WGBN's new slogan -- "The Voice of Urban Pittsburgh" -- reflects the change. It's not a format change, said Russell Carter, WGBN director of community affairs and marketing director. "We are still gospel at the core and a religious broadcaster. But we are trying to reach out to the community. We are trying to include some of those programs because the city really needs them."

The demise of WAMO-FM and AM left a void in programming geared to the African-American community, and WGBN is trying to fill part of that void, he said.

The station has picked up some of the talk programming that was displaced when the former WAMO-AM was sold. The syndicated Bev Smith show airs weeknights from 7 to 10 p.m.

The station also has added "The Soul Pitt Xtra," which provides information on upcoming events. It's a spinoff of the local Soul Pitt website, www.thesoulpitt.com. It airs at 12:05 p.m. Monday and Wednesday and at 5:45 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday.

Another addition is "Hot or Not," a weekly program in which gospel and inspirational performers submit their songs and the audience votes on them. It airs at 4 p.m. Fridays."

God, am I glad I found this thread. I enjoy WMAL's programming, but I do stream from an outside market station just to avoid her excruciating news breaks. He is undoubtedly a Lib, as she gleefully parrots CNN's and the DNC's talking points. And if her "news editor" work wasn't awful enough, that migraine-inducing on air delivery is the absolute worst. I was going to email Bill Hess and ask him, "What sort of blackmail material does she have on you and station management?" She needs to be canned. Wake up WMAL! Guys are tuning out in no small part due to Maria Leaf's news breaks, and in a very competitive industry, I am at a loss to explain why she is still behind the microphone.

I like big gurls! I would enjoy her straddling my face as I flick her clit with my tongue and happily drink her juices!

Have you listened to WMAL? They start this. Chris Plante does it all the time.

I'm in agreement with most. Her natural speaking voice is probably fine, but that awful, nasal affectation is unlistenable.

wmAL has taken a turn for the worst.

michael savage is gone and Larry Oconnor is taking his time slot for a 3 hour snooze fest.

Maria Leaf's voice sounds like a 2 bit actor from a bad 1940's gangster movie

Sorry WMAL. I enjoy listening to some of the shows while driving. I have to switch stations when Maria Leaf speaks. Her delivery and voice turns me into an aggressive driver. I switch to WTOP or music until I know she is no longer talking. So irritating. Unnatural and over-delivery. Who cares about her appearance.

Are you a dunce or just a liar?

Leaf is nothing more than a big mouth with a bad voice. You obviously know nothing about radio.

She mixes her voice through a modulator so she can sound like a man. It is like a live lesbian promo.

I expect to see her move on to commercials where she is eating clams at some point in the future.

I actually called the show to express my displeasure with dropping Savage and they hung up on me.

I don't think these guys give a crap.

Munchkin on "The Wizard Of Oz": What Does Maria Leaf Look Like?
Posted by: John Velasco ()
Date: February 15, 2017 12:40PM

Hey guys, I believe it really does not matter how Maria Leaf looks since all faces look GREAT over the radio.

As for her voice, since Maria's radio voice is tantamount to "finger nails over a chalk board", I have completely switched from WMAL to other stations across the fruited plain.

Simply put, I do not understand why she does not take voice lessons. Regardless, I have put together a hilarious imitation montage of Maria Leaf that sounds like the munchkins on "The Wizard Of Oz". No one can deny, Maria sounds like a munchkin on steroids. In short, I have taken her exact words and translated it to a "Maria Munchkin Leaf" parody.

Having said that, I think it would be better severed to switch from WMAL to another station. I have been and am happier for it. Besides, you learn quite a bit about other locations around our Representative Republic. What's more, RUSH and SAVAGE have never sounded better. But, I do miss Chris Plante.

Thank goodness others have the same opinion of Maria Leaf. I started listening to Chris Plante a little over a year ago and at first I thought the newscast at 11:30 was a JOKE (literally HA HA, the laugh is on us). She is beyond horrible. Thank goodness I only have to kill the volume once during Plante's show. By the way, Heather Curtis ain't that great either, sounds like a 6 year old girl with a sinus infection.

Finding this thread confirms what my 2 children and myself have been saying about her voice. OMG, its hard to believe they actually pay her for what she does. I've heard plenty of shitty nasal voices in my time, but nothing comes close to the cochlear assault commited by her, every time Dubbbble-you Em-ay-elllll breaks for news!

Maria Leaf has a unique voice and delivery that sets hear apart from the masses of other ho hum radio people. And it is not unlike many other broadcasters that either appeal to an audience or simply not.

When I first heard Maria Leaf's news update I was instantly drawn by her style which was not only very cool but also very sexy. So while I understand some (or many) may totally dislike her and her voice delivery etc. just know there are many others out there who love listening to her and look forward to the next "update".

Maria you rock :)

To the person(s) who wrote the last three posts--you can't be serious.

A normal delivery will not "either appeal or not"--it will be just that--a normal delivery that won't stand out. Maria's does stand out. Like a sore thumb permanently stuck in someone's eye.

The woman is impossible to listen to, plain and simple.

"You cant be serious" is absolutely correct. She is absolutely unlistenable. So horrible, her delivery is like a bad parody of a parody of a female Ted Baxter. That gasping for breath between sentences is getting worse, BTW.

The first time I heard her I wondered who hired her. Like, after listening to her the program director said, "She's the one!"

WTF??!

OK, Maria. It looks like you found this thread and brought out your cabal of three fans. So what's the score now, 87-3? If the slaughter rule was in effect, this discussion would have been over a long time ago. Once Chris Plante is off the air, I go elsewhere for Rush for one reason and one reason only. "I'm Maria Leaf on Washington's MAULLLLL, Double UU M-A-L and Double UU M-A-L Dot CALMMMM."

I've gone completely without WMAL for a couple months now and I am much more relaxed. Certainly less irritated by that disgusting voice known as Maria Leaf.

AM 1260 Michael Gallagher in the morning, AM 930 Rush in the afternoon, and then either AM 1260 Sean Hannity or some Pandora after Rush.

Bliss. WMAL-free bliss!

When I first heard Maria on WMAL I thought, "wow, finally a woman who can project her voice. She's terrific! Unlike most other women on the air I understand every word. Most women find it impossible to use the letter "R."
Like I said, it's a pleasure to listen to her. Go, Babe.

You people that are so shallow. Radio is certainly no like it was in the 40's with the smooth talk and the 60's with all the fast talking DJ's .....this is a person that has her style and you know, I find it interesting. It's different but I remember it and funny thing is...You are talking about it. She wins. More you talk the more people are going to tune in to see what they think. Looks...shallow hal comes to mind. She is attractive and you think other wise, the they don't need you to list Hal. I've read all your post and I wonder how you live your life so perfect all the time. Amazing.

The valid criticism of Maria Leaf here is about her over the top and nasally on air delivery, rather than her looks. There are plenty of ratio personalities that have a "face" for radio. This has nothing to do with that. She is awful on the air. Her voice gives me migraines. That is not being shallow. That is being truthful. I wouldn't hire her for my radio station, not in a million years.

Finally googled annoying voices and Maria Leaf in one sentence and found this forum. OMG, how on earth can anyone think of broadcasting her voice to the public? I cannot even explain how it sounds. That awful pre-recorded ..."in the Hadid Traffic Center"...sentence that ends with the wrong voice inflection is nauseating. I only get to hear the radio during lunch and must turn it way down during the commercials and her annoying input. Please give this woman a desk job and get her off the air!!!
