2004 – Tim Brando

Tim Brando attained national celebrity in front of the camera as the host of CBS Sports’ College Football Today and At the Half, CBS Sports’ college basketball halftime studio show. Brando also provides commentary for Jefferson Pilot’s coverage of SEC and ACC basketball broadcasts and has been a participant in the SEC-focused athletic radio show Conference Call, which airs throughout the Southeast. Tim was the play-by-play voice of the Carolina Panthers television network pre-season games for the franchises’s first seven years. Joining CBS in 1996 he has been a voice for the NCAA Tournament as well adding football to his CBS responsibilities in 1997.

Football play-by-play analyst for Neville High School at age 14, then on to LSU as a play-by-play commentator, followed by nine years at ESPN, where he holds the record for the most sports covered at one network by one announcer-25 different sports! Brando has also worked as a television analyst for Turner Sports/NBA, the Atlanta Braves, the Atlanta Hawks, a CBS Television commentator on The Road to the Final Four, College Football Today and, of course, now with Sporting News Radio as host of The Tim Brando Show!

Brando’s engaging on-air persona is best characterized as warm, fun and fast-paced, and his knowledge of all sports is compelling to his listeners. Tim is highly respected amongst players, coaches, sports celebrities and sports journalists, and draws upon his deep relationships within those communities to bring listeners an unprecedented level of participation with the biggest names in sports.

When terror struck the heartland, just 90 minutes away, we all stood united as Oklahomans. One day after the Murrah Building bombing, the Rotary Club of Tulsa provided a $50,000 grant from the proceeds of that year’s Iba Awards, which was then duplicated by others in Tulsa. Within another day, $100,000 was provided to our colleagues at the OKC Downtown Rotary Club 29 to use wherever they saw the need was most urgent to help our fellow Oklahomans.

Over the years, particularly at our club’s Celebrate! Centennial Banquet in 2015, the OKC Club has recognized this gift as a welcome symbol of Rotary friendship at a time when their club and the entire city was shaken.
