SB NATION RADIO and JAKIB Media Partners announced the return of iconic Tony Bruno & his co-host Harry Mayes to national network radio. The duo will re-launch INTO THE NIGHT on May 11th, to be heard 10p-1a ET each weekday, across Gow Media’s SB Nation Radio Network.

“I continue in amazement that at a time when there are no sports to talk about, my partner Harry and I keep getting hired to talk sports,” said Bruno, the legendary King of Sports Talk.

Into the Night with Tony Bruno and Harry Mayes​ will showcase daily their unpredictable, humorous and unique style.

“Amid the insanity of this Pandemic, the world needs the opportunity to enjoy what the industry calls RADIO GOLD,” said Joe Krause, Founder/JAKIB Media Partners.

“We are thrilled to add Tony and Harry to our lineup,” said David Gow, CEO of Gow Media. I have long been a fan of Tony’s, as I think he is one of the top talents in all of radio.”

The launch on SB Nation Radio, which has over 125 affiliates, adds another large platform for Bruno and Mayes. The duo already has a huge following on Twitch.tv and on SIRIUSXM where they are heard each weekday 3pm-6pm on Channel 211, the Dan Patrick Channel.

“It’s very exciting to have an opportunity to work with Tony Bruno again,” said Craig Larson, COO and Program Director for SB Nation Radio. “During the years I produced Tony’s morning show, I learned so much from one of the all time greats of our industry.”

Through his four decades on the air, Bruno has been a prominent sports talk voice on nearly every national radio network. He was the first voice heard on ESPN Radio and Fox Sports Radio and the only radio host to have ever been featured in the EA Sports Madden game. After retiring from terrestrial radio, Bruno began hosting a once-a-week podcast, which expanded to a daily stream on Twitch.tv. He also hosted Countdown 2 Kickoff on ESPN Radio during the 2019 NFL season and recently returned to terrestrial radio when he began on SIRIUS XM in April, 2020.

Harry Mayes is an 18-year sports talk radio veteran, 15 of which were spent on the air in Philadelphia, where he became one of the best-known and most relatable personalities in a market known for its die-hard sports fans. Bruno and Mayes hosted together for five years on Philadelphia radio.
