Larry Brown Bio

Bio written in first person by site founder Larry Brown

I founded Larry Brown Sports in January 2007 as a place to share my thoughts, viewpoints, and opinions on sports. I created the site as a side venture while I was working at FOX Sports Radio Network in Los Angeles. The site was updated regularly throughout my time as a host and anchor for Sporting News Radio, which began in January of 2008. The site was mostly a side project until I decided to try making it a full-time operation in late 2010.

My sports radio experience includes five and a half years (2002-2007) working at FOX Sports Radio doing anything from editing to producing and anchoring updates. From 2008-2010, I worked as an update anchor and show host at Sporting News Radio.

In addition to running and managing the site, I provided voiceover for NFL highlights on NFL.com for the 2010 and 2011 football seasons.

My career in sports radio began in the summer between my freshman and sophomore years at UCLA when I interned at FOX Sports Radio. While in college, I spent a lot of my time managing the sports department of the student radio station (KLA), where I hosted a sports talk show and called games for UCLA football, basketball, and baseball from 2002-2005. I dabbled in TV at the student station, Bruinnews29, working as a sports reporter for a few quarters. I also spent the 2004 season working for the Dodgers’ P.R. department.

From 2006-2007, I served as the fill-in producer on the Jim Rome Show. Additionally, I wrote for AOL Sports’ FanHouse, covering baseball, football and handicapping NFL games. In the ’07 season, I also worked as a writer and research for MLB.tv.
