John Tournour also known as JT the Brick is a nationally syndicated sports talk radio host at Fox Sports Radio. His career in radio began as a caller to the Jim Rome Show in 1995, when he won the first “Smack-Off” caller contest. This spurred his desire to get into the radio industry.
After buying time to be on air and develop his craft in Los Angeles and San Diego, he quickly made his debut on the SportsFan Radio network in May of 1996 in Las Vegas. His fast-paced, opinionated and caller driven style quickly gained national attention on some of the biggest sports talk stations in America. They included KNBR San Francisco, KJR Seattle, The Ticket in Dallas, WEEI in Boston and WQAM Miami to name a few.
In 1998 he was hired by the Oakland Raiders and became the pre and post game host for their game day broadcasts. He has served in various broadcasting capacities since then including television sideline reporter, TV host and is now entering his 19th season with the team.
JT moved to San Francisco in 1999 to also host a local sports talk show on The Ticket 1050 from 12-3pm along with his nationally syndicated show for SportsFan Radio from 9pm-2am. He became known as “The Hardest Working Man in Sports Radio” pulling off 8 hours a day on the air for close to 2 years.
In 2001, he was hired by Fox Sports Radio in Los Angeles and has been with this division of iHeart Media Group and Premiere Radio Networks for the last 15 years. His show is syndicated in over 190 markets and is broadcast from the Lotus Broadcasting Studios of Fox Sports Radio 1340.
JT moved back to Las Vegas in 2009 to become more involved with local radio in addition to his national show. He has an established career as an emcee for several national and local charities. They include Coaches vs. Cancer, Mike Ditka’s Gridiron Great Assistance Fund, and the Deacon Jones Foundation that are all based in Las Vegas along with several other national charitable foundations outside the state of Nevada.
JT wrote his Memoir “The Handoff” in 2012 as a tribute to his former boss and mentor Andrew Ashwood who was diagnosed with terminal cancer and chose him to be his chemo partner. The book chronicles Andrew’s dignified fight and the life lessons that he handed off to JT before he passed away.
JT lives in Summerlin with his wife Julie and two sons John (15) and Jason (13).
Originally from New York, JT is proud to call Las Vegas his home.
