Brando Makes FOX Sports Debut First Week of College Football Season

Wednesday, June 25, 2014 - 1:01pm

Tim Brando, a veteran broadcaster with decades of experience calling over 25 sports, is
the latest addition to FOX Sports’ impressive and rapidly growing roster of college sports personalities
and contributors. FOX Sports Executive Producer John Entz announced today that Brando joins FOX
Sports’ coverage of college football and college basketball on FOX and FOX Sports 1 beginning this
season. Brando’s broadcast partner, as well as the full FOX Sports college football announce teams,
will be released at a later date.

“Tim is one of the most recognized voices in college sports,” Entz said. “Adding someone with his
experience and credibility to our college football and basketball coverage is a fantastic addition for
FOX Sports.”

Brando (@TimBrando) comes to FOX Sports with an impressive resume that includes his daily show,
The Tim Brando Show, on Sirius XM Radio. Winner of the prestigious Lindsey Nelson Award in 2014,
a national honor given annually to a college football broadcaster, Brando is one of the most
authoritative voices in the world of big-time college athletics. He has called more than 25 different
sports during his prolific career, including college football and basketball, and he has been one of the
most recognizable voices of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament since 1996. Brando also served
as host of CBS Sports’ College Football Today and At The Half studio shows, did play-by-play for
CBS Sports’ NFL coverage for several years and has done play-by-play for Raycom’s coverage of
ACC basketball and hosted Raycom’s Emmy Award-winning show Football Saturdays.

Brando joins Bruce Feldman and Stewart Mandel as other recent additions to FOX Sports’ expanding
college sports coverage. Feldman was announced in April as a FOX Sports senior college football
reporter & columnist, and Mandel earlier this month as a senior columnist focusing on college football
and basketball.

FOX Sports’ 2014 college football schedule includes exciting action from the Big 12, Conference USA
and Pac-12, as well as the Big Ten and Pac-12 conference championship games. Overall this season, over 100 college football games air across FOX Sports’ national and local broadcast and cable
platforms, encompassing the FOX broadcast network, FOX Sports 1, FOX Sports Networks (FSN),
FOX College Sports, FOX Deportes and FOX Sports GO. Coverage this season kicks off with four
straight days of action, beginning Thursday, August 28 (10:00 PM ET), as Rutgers takes the field for
the first time as a member of the Big Ten, facing Washington State at CenturyLink Field in Seattle on
FOX Sports 1.
