I've noticed a lot of the younger guys on the score are like that. I drive into work around 11pm, so i often hear Joe O, Conner McKnight and some of the other younger guys on. They often mock the listeners in a very Berstein manner. Just last night i heard jay zawaski break out into the "meatball bears fan" voice when talking to a guy about the Blackhawks. My guess is they see Bernstein has the prime afternoon slot, makes(what i assume is) good money and think "this is the way to the top here".
I actually think a lot of the younger guys are pretty talented, but when they start breaking out the BB show style stuff, i generally turn it off.
