Jt The Brick Career
Jt is the host of several programs for the Las Vegas Raiders, including the team’s radio pregame show. The SUNY Geneseo grad majored in Speech Communication. He was previously the Delta Kappa Tau fraternity’s president and a member of the rugby squad.
Jt got his start in sports radio as a frequent caller to The Jim Rome Show as a former stockbroker. After winning the first “Smack-Off” in 1995, he was offered a job hosting a late-night Sunday show on KMAX-Los Angeles. Jt then switched his show to KFMB-San Diego. He was only there for a few weeks before being offered a show on the now-defunct Sports Fan Radio Network in Las Vegas.
His late-night show ran for five years, until the network folded in 2001. While working in Las Vegas, he called the first game of the original XFL, featuring the Las Vegas Outlaws, on local radio. During this time, Jt also held an afternoon show on San Francisco-based radio station KNBR. KNBR used to have him on his local show, his four-hour national show, and a nighttime rerun of at least a portion of that national show before the next broadcast day.
In June 2001, Jt joined the fledgling Fox Sports Radio and began hosting an afternoon show. He was later shifted to the nighttime slot and began hosting a late-night syndicated sports show on SportsFan Radio Network. The show was moved to 3 p.m. Pacific/6 p.m. Eastern in 2012. Jt also hosted the Fox Sunday Game Time React show through the end of the 2005 season.
During the show, he and Bryan Cox discussed the day’s football games. A similar show hosted by John Fricke and Chris Landry soon took its place. Jt previously hosted a show that aired on Fox Sports Radio weekdays from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Pacific time (8 pm to 11 pm Eastern). His Fox Sports Radio show focused primarily about the NFL.
He requested at least one caller from each NFL team (during the playoffs, those in the playoffs) to answer his “NFL Roll Call” on Friday nights during the season and playoffs. On September 11, 2018, Fox Sports announced the dismissal of Jt and producer Steve Gorman. On June 26, 2006, he appeared as a guest on CNBC’s The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, where he explored the conflict between Chicago Sun-Times columnist Jay Mariotti and Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillén.
He is the host of the JTandLooney Podcast. Jt and Looney collaborated to cover a wide range of issues in Sports, Pop Culture, and Current Events. Among their most recent themes include Super Bowl, Brian Flores, Roids, OZARK and Sneaky Pete!, Gambling Rambling with JT and Looney, JT and LOONEY, UNLEASHED!, and others.
