Brandon Tierney

Mon-Fri: 3PM ET

One of the bright, fearless voices in sports talk, Brooklyn native Brandon Tierney has made a name for himself nationwide as a respected, entertaining and insightful personality. Currently, he co-hosts CBS Sports Radio’s marquee program “Tiki & Tierney” alongside former New York Giants football player, Tiki Barber, which can be heard across the country from 3-6 p.m. ET on the nation’s largest 24/7 major-market radio network. Tierney also served as an analyst on CBS Sports Network’s “THAT OTHER PREGAME SHOW,” broadcast Sunday mornings during the NFL season, from 2013 thru 2019. 

In 2019, Tierney ventured outside of the sports realm and tackled a new genre, serving as lead host on Discovery Channel's acclaimed "Man vs Bear" series. The episodes introduced Tierney to a whole new audience, as the show highlighted the ultimate competition of human strength and ingenuity versus the North American Apex Predator to audiences around the world.

Additionally, he has been a staple as a radio analyst for St. John’s basketball games since 2003 and hosts the “Red Storm Report” with head coach Mike Anderson, seen weekly 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 drive 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 also anchored New York Knicks pre-game, halftime and post-game shows and served as occasional play-by-play announcer for the station’s Knicks broadcasts. On the television side, Tierney was the feature panelist on SportsNet New York’s (SNY) signature show, “The WheelHouse,” for six years. He was awarded his first 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” and other network properties.

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 every year since its inception in 2012. 

He earned a degree in journalism from Marist College while also lettering in baseball. He is married and has two young children.

    Draft a QB in the top 10, and history proves NFL teams hit on roughly 50% of those selections. Draft a QB in the top 10 and provide him with a pathetically porous offensive line, zero perimeter weapons and a twice-clueless head coach, and the success rate plummets to 0%. Sorry, Sam Darnold, but...
