Brandon Tierney Host, 9:00AM-12Noon CBS Sports Radio
As one of the bright, electric voices in sports talk radio, Brooklyn native Brandon Tierney has made a name for himself as a respected, entertaining, insightful and well-informed personality. Currently, he co-hosts CBS Sports Radioâ€™s â€œTiki & Tierneyâ€ alongside former New York Giants football player, Tiki Barber, which can be heard across the country from 9:00AM-12Noon, ET on the nationâ€™s largest 24/7 major-market radio network.
Additionally, Tierney is an analyst on CBS Sports Networkâ€™s â€œTHAT OTHER PREGAME SHOW,â€ broadcast Sunday mornings during the NFL season. He also serves as a radio analyst for St. Johnâ€™s basketball games, and hosts the â€œRed Storm Reportâ€ with head coach Steve Lavin on MSG Network.
In 2013, Tierney returned home to New York, as host of CBS Sports Radioâ€™s morning program. Prior to CBS Sports Radio, Tierney hosted afternoons on â€œThe Driveâ€ with Ric Bucher weekdays on 95.7 The Game in San Francisco. Before moving west, Tierney was a popular staple at 1050 ESPN Radio in New York City for nearly nine years. In addition to his hosting duties, Tierney anchored New York Knicks pre-game, half-time and post-game shows, and served as occasional play-by-play announcer for the stationâ€™s Knicks broadcasts.
On the television side, Tierney was a panelist on SportsNet New Yorkâ€™s (SNY) signature show, â€œThe WheelHouse,â€ for four years. He was awarded his first New York Emmy for his role on the networkâ€™s 2010 NBAâ€™s â€œFree Agent Frenzyâ€ program in July 2010. He was also a frequent contributor to ESPNâ€™s â€œOutside the Lines.â€
Tierneyâ€™s broadcasting career began locally in 1999 in Allentown, Penn., before quickly venturing onto the national scene as an on-air host for the syndicated Sports Fan Radio Network. He eventually moved to Detroit, hosting his own top-rated midday show from 2001-03 on Sports Radio 1130 â€œThe Fan.â€ That success enabled him to make the rarest of jumps, back to his native New York.
Tierney has been featured on Talkers Magazineâ€™s â€œHeavy Hundred of Sports Talkâ€ recognizing the 100 most important sports radio hosts in America since its inception in 2012. He earned a degree in journalism from Marist College while also lettering in baseball.
