My name is Bryant Horn, and I am a graduate of the University of Alabama with a degree in Sports Journalism and Criminal Justice. Growing up in Alabaster, Alabama, just 20 minutes south of Birmingham, I was thrown into the fire that is southern sports.
I currently work for TIDE 100.9, a Townsquare Media radio station in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. There, I produce for “The Game with Ryan Fowler,” Tuscaloosa’s longest-running sports radio show. In addition to producing, I cover a multitude of sports for their website, including high school football, Alabama football, and professional sports. At TIDE, I was the lead beat writer for high school football during the season, and I led a team of 10-plus interns in covering several high schools across west Alabama.
As for live radio experience, I host my own show, “Hop on with Horn.” It airs on TIDE 100.9 on Wednesday nights from 7 p.m. CT to 8n p.m. On the show, I take callers, interview guests, and break down the latest sports news.
Before TIDE, I covered high school football in the Birmingham and Tuscaloosa areas for AL.com. I also held the position of “production intern” at WJOX 94.5, a sports talk radio station in Birmingham that originally hosted the “Paul Finebaum Show.”
I am a third-generation Alabama student, so naturally I grew up watching the Crimson Tide every Saturday, from the “dark years” under Mike Shula to the current dynasty of Nick Saban.
In addition to college football, I quickly became enamored with my high school’s football team. I attended every game, and by my junior year of high school, I was given the opportunity to call play-by-play for my high school’s news team.
On the side, I quickly started following every sport I could- Premier League soccer on Saturday’s and Sunday’s, the NHL during week nights, and the MLB during the summer.
My ever-expanding passion for sports has brought me to where I am today- studying sports journalism, trying to make a difference in the world of journalism. My goal? To bring breaking sports updates that are both relevant and accurate.
