Tony Bruno is an American sports talk radio host. He has worked for national American sports broadcasters including ESPN Radio, Fox Sports Radio, Premiere, and Sporting News Radio.


Bruno's first talk show was on WCAU in Philadelphia as the morning host. When WCAU abandoned talk in 1991, Bruno moved to Sports Talk as a co-host of WIP's Morning Guys show with Angelo Cataldi and Al Morganti. He later joined ESPN's new radio network in 1992 as one of the first hosts. He remained at the network until 2000. In 1996, he stated on air he would walk from Bristol, CT to Syracuse, NY if the Orangemen beat Kansas in that year’s NCAA Basketball Tournament—which they did, by a score of 60–56. He was ready to make that walk, but his bosses at ESPN refused to let him.

Fox Sports Radio

In 2000, Bruno moved to Los Angeles, launching the Fox Sports Radio network. Bruno hosted The Tony Bruno Extravaganza morning program with Andrew Siciliano.

In January 2008, it was announced that Bruno's show on Sporting News Radio had been cancelled, though KNBR hoped to have him continue working with Radnich.
