Tiki Barber (pictured), Brandon Tierney, and Dana Jacobson will anchor the new CBS sports network morning show when the network launches January 2nd. CBS Radio President Dan Mason said, CBS Sports Radio has been able to attract some of the most renowned names in the business, and Tiki, Brandon, and Dana are just the latest examples of the networks star power. Weve assembled an impressive group of professional athletes and accomplished broadcasters to bring fans unrivaled sports commentary, and the most entertaining lineup in all of sports radio."

In 1998, former New York Giant Tiki Barber began his broadcasting career working for Sports Radio WFAN in New York, which led to stints at WCBS-TV, Sirius Satellite Radio, the YES Network, and Fox News Channel. Upon retiring from the NFL, he signed a contract to work as a correspondent for NBC News and Sports, primarily for The Today Show and Football Night in America, but also covering the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing for MSNBC.

Brooklyn native Brandon Tierney makes a return to his hometown in joining CBS Sports Radio. He currently hosts The Drive with Tierney and Bucher, broadcast weekdays in San Francisco on 95.7 The Game. Prior to moving west, Tierney was a popular staple at 1050 ESPN Radio in New York City for nearly nine years.

In addition to his hosting duties at ESPN Radio, Tierney also anchored New York Knicks pre-game, half-time, and post-game shows for three seasons and occasionally served as play-by-play announcer for the stations Knicks broadcasts. His game experience also includes serving as lead analyst for St. Johns basketball for six seasons.

His broadcast career also includes experience in radio and television including the syndicated Sports Fan Radio Network, Sports Radio 1130 The Fan in Detroit, SportsNet New Yorks (SNY) The WheelHouse, and Red Storm Report with St. Johns head coaches Steve Lavin and Norm Roberts. In addition, he was a frequent contributor to ESPNs Outside the Lines.

Dana Jacobson is an award-winning anchor and reporter. In addition to her role at CBS Sports Radio, Jacobson will contribute to studio programming for CBS Sports Network, the cable home of CBS Sports, debuting in January.  She is best known for the various roles she filled during nearly a decade of work at ESPN. Jacobson began her ESPN career as an anchor on SportsCenter, and later went on to anchor and host ESPN First Take (originally known as Cold Pizza), Outside the Lines, and College Football Live.

Jacobson also has served as sideline reporter for ESPNs Sunday Night NBA showcase game and became a well-known part of ESPNs Summer and Winter X Games, hosting the events nightly wrap-up show XCenter.  Additionally, Jacobson has written for and filled in as a radio host on both The Dan Patrick Show and Mike and Mike.

After graduating from the University of Michigan, Jacobson took her first job in television broadcasting as an assignment editor at the CBS station in her hometown of Detroit. She also worked in Traverse City, Mich., and Sacramento, Calif., where she was honored with National Headliner and Regional Edward R. Murrow Awards for sports reporting. It was in Northern California that she first gave sports radio a try, co-hosting an NBA show on the Sacramento Kings flagship station, CBS RADIOs KHTK 1140.
