It was a 2 horse race for worst announcer of the year as voted on by the readers of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Each year, Dave Meltzer asks his readers to vote on many categories. One such category is the worst wrestling announcer.
Corey Graves and Michale Cole led the way, but Corey Graves was chosen as the worst announcer of the year. Graves and Cole were the only two announcers who got more than 100 votes.
Graves got 474. Meanwhile, Michael Cole finished with 242.
Unlike many of the other lists voted on by the readers, WWE had quite a few names on this list. Here are the announcers with the most votes:

1. COREY GRAVES 474

6. Mauro Ranallo 38
7. Alex Marvez 36

There is some serious WWE hate going on when Jim Cornette can resign from the NWA for his comments, but he still finishes tied for 10th on this list.
In a strange coincidence, Jim Ross, Mauro Ranallo, and even Jim Cornette were also voted into the Top 10 for best announcer. Here is that list as well:
