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 Radio’s “Tiki & Tierney” alongside former New York Giants football player, Tiki Barber, which can be heard across the country from 3:00PM-6PM, ET on the nation’s largest 24/7 major-market radio network. Additionally, Tierney is an analyst on CBS Sports Network’s “THAT OTHER PREGAME SHOW,” broadcast Sunday mornings during the NFL season.
He also serves as a radio analyst for St. John’s basketball games, and hosts the “Red Storm Report” with head coach Steve Lavin on MSG Network. In 2013, Tierney returned home to New York, as host of CBS Sports Radio’s morning program. Prior to CBS Sports Radio, Tierney hosted afternoons on “The Drive” 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 station’s Knicks broadcasts. On the television side, Tierney was a panelist on SportsNet New York’s (SNY) signature show, “The WheelHouse,” for four years. He was awarded his first New York Emmy for his role on the network’s 2010 NBA’s “Free Agent Frenzy” program in July 2010.
He was also a frequent contributor to ESPN’s “Outside the Lines.” Tierney’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 “The Fan.” That success enabled him to make the rarest of jumps, back to his native New York. Tierney has been featured on Talkers Magazine’s “Heavy Hundred of Sports Talk” 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.
