Sports Talker Tony Bruno Talks Radio

Zach McCrite
The Podcast About Sports Radio host, Zach McCrite calls Tony Bruno the kind of radio host with whom you can have a couple of beers and enjoy the back-and-forth banter.  He’s a voice you’ve heard on local and national airwaves for over 40 years now.

Tony Bruno has done it all and is doing it all. He helped start ESPN Radio and has lived on both coasts.  And it might have come at the expense of his marriage.
