J.T. The Brick, a former stock broker, got his start in sports radio after winning Jim Rome's 1995 "Smack Off" championship. He then was quickly offered a job hosting a late-night Sunday show at KMAX-Los Angeles. J.T. paid for his airtime by selling his own advertising on his show before gaining a better opportunity on KFMB in San Diego.
J.T. only spent a few weeks in San Diego before he was hired by The Sports Fan Radio Network in Las Vegas in May of 1996. J.T. was hired by the Oakland Raiders in 1998 to host their pre and post game radio shows.
In June of 2001, J.T. moved to Fox Sports Radio in Los Angeles where his show has remained the premiere evening sports talk show in America and is heard from 7-11pm.
He is known for delivering all of his opinions in a very aggressive manner and considers himself a sports fan that enjoys interacting with listeners. Throughout his radio career, he expects his callers to try to match his "passion and energy" while contributing to his show and will not hesitate to hang up on them if they do not comply with his high energy.
J.T. is a frequent contributor for Fox News and MSNBC and also has been writing for NBCSPORTS.com for the past seven years.
