San Francisco, CA – SportsRadio 95.7FM (KBWF-FM), The Bay Area’s only FM sports station, announced today it was teaming Brandon Tierney with San Francisco 49ers Radio Color Analyst Eric Davis as Co-Hosts for the 2:00 - 6:00pm afternoon show. The afternoon show will debut August 1, 2011.
“This show will be a lot of things, but stale won’t be one of them,” said Jason Barrett, Program Director of SportsRadio 95.7FM. “Brandon Tierney and Eric Davis will provide Bay Area Sports fans with the choice they deserve in afternoons. Brandon is an emerging superstar and a perfect fit for sports on FM.”
Tierney joins SportsRadio 95.7FM from ESPN 1050 (WEPN-AM)/New York where he hosted middays, evenings, and the New York Knicks pre and post-game shows. Prior to ESPN 1050, he hosted middays at 1130 The Fan (WDFN-AM) in Detroit.
“His passionate ‘tell it like it is’ style makes him likeable and relatable and his ability to be well versed on all sports allows him to connect with so many different fan bases. To have the opportunity to bring him to the Bay area and pair him with someone the caliber of Eric Davis, gives us the fire-power we need to make a major difference during afternoons on the FM dial,” added Barrett.
“I’m so pumped to work with Eric Davis every afternoon on SportsRadio 95.7FM and I promise Bay Area sports fans that our show won’t be the same old boring thing day-after-day,” said Tierney. “With so many sports teams in the Bay Area, I’m excited to bring a hard hitting, but fair style on the air and I look forward to ingratiating myself into the Bay Area sports scene immediately.”
Tierney is an experienced television presence as he is a frequent contributor to ESPN’s “Outside the Lines”. Tierney was a panelist on SportsNet New York’s signature nightly show “The WheelHouse,” and hosted the “Red Storm Report” with St. John’s University basketball head coach Steve Lavin.
