Bob "Mad Dog" Lassiter (September 30, 1945 – October 13, 2006) was a talk radio host best known for a long stint in Tampa, Florida in the 1980s and 1990s.

His show was known for his trading insults and combative relationship with both radio station management and his callers, particularly with elderly Christians and conservatives. As heated as the confrontations got, Lassiter rarely would raise his voice, instead speaking in a polished announcer style with a distinctive lisp. Numerous airchecks of Lassiter's on-air confrontations circulate on the internet to this day.

Lassiter was famous for trolling his audience including subjecting them to long periods of dead air and announcing non-existent contests and cash giveaways. He specifically sought confrontational callers and would often insult or promptly hang up on callers who claimed to agree with him. He invited prank callers to call his show - many of whom would flush toilets or blow raspberries - specifically to insult them for wasting his and their time.
