Default Why do radios choose dynamic mics?

I'm sure there must be a way to word this question to get actually useful search results, but every time I try searching it, all I get are comparisons between dynamic and condenser mics. I know what the differences are and I also know that most of those search results make a lot of incorrect assumptions (the oft repeated "dynamic mics are better for untreated spaces" fallacy), but what I am trying to figure out is why specifically most radio studios seem to use dynamic mics like the RE20 and SM7B. Both are great mics, but there are also plenty of condenser mics that would probably be better suited to the task, especially in radio where audio quality is the main focus. Is it just that they look more professional than condenser mics in that price range? I can certainly understand not equipping a studio with U87s or not wanting to look "amateur" with a bunch of AT2020s, but is there something else I'm missing?
