I'de go with Long John Nebel, because he was one of the first.  It 
was on the overnights that talk radio started, and much later till it 
spread to other time slots.

If you're looking for a more national example of this, there's the 
guy who started the "Nitecaps" program years ago out of Salt Lake, I 
don't remember his name.
