Hey there! It's me, Brian. Since you're here, let me tell you a little about myself. I was born and raised in Albany and currently live there with my girlfriend Samantha and our two cute little doggies named Biggie and Tiny. Adding to the nuthouse is my son Brody who is growing up incredibly fast, but getting more and more talented, funny, and handsome by the day. I feel very lucky to be able to spend time with you in the morning making you laugh, making you think, and sometimes even making you a little angry. But man, it's a privilege to do the show each and every day with Chrissy. I enjoy writing and talking about all things sports, wildlife, Capital Region nostalgia, interesting local people, and any and all of the quirky things I observe while living in the 518.
