Gregg Giannotti returns to his roots in New York to co-host the morning show with former NFL linebacker, Brian Jones on CBS Sports Radio, heard weekdays from 6:00-9:00 AM, ET over the airwaves of the nation’s largest 24/7 major-market radio network.
Giannotti began his sports broadcasting career in 2005 as an intern at CBS RADIO’s WFAN in New York, the nation’s original and most listened to all-sports radio station. He worked part-time for the station following the completion of his internship and joined WFAN full-time in 2007. He first served as a board operator and took on producing responsibilities a short time after that. In 2008, he hosted his first show for the legendary station.
When CBS RADIO was launching a new all-sports radio station in Pittsburgh in 2010, Giannotti was named as Sportsradio 93.7 The Fan’s night host. Just six months later he was promoted to host of the station’s morning show – a program that has perennially been the No. 1-rated sports talk show in the market.
While in Pittsburgh, Giannotti also served as the sideline reporter and pregame host for Pittsburgh football during the 2012 and 2013 seasons. In addition to his duties at The Fan, he also hosted a weekend show on CBS Sports Radio.
Giannotti graduated from Hofstra University in 2006 and currently resides in Long Island.

After a five year NFL career spent with the Indianapolis Colts (1991) and New Orleans Saints (1995-98), Jones returned to Texas to begin his sports broadcasting career. He hosted a daily radio show on Sports Radio 1300-AM The Zone, served as the Longhorn Sports Network’s sideline reporter for all UT football games and hosted Longhorn Sports Center with Mack Brown and Rick Barnes. Jones also spent two years with Fox Sports Southwest.

That season, Jones led the Longhorns with 116 tackles (71 solo) and five forced fumbles, helping Texas to a 10-2 record. Jones grew up in Lubbock, Texas and currently resides in New Jersey.
