Brian Joyce is a new brand of talk radio. Often described as the “future of talk radio”, he has tripled his ratings since first arriving at Talk Radio 102.3 FM.
While the rest of the talk radio landscape is littered with cranky old men, Brian lights up the airwaves with brash, bold, thought-provoking, and intelligent conversation. Equally comfortable mixing news and politics with sex, drugs, and rock & roll, there is no topic Brian won’t touch, there is no listener Brian can’t appeal to, and he does it in heart of the Bible Belt.
A native of Somerville, Massachusetts, Brian was a regular fill-in host at Boston’s 50,000-watt Talk Station, AM-680 WRKO. Before that, he worked at 96.9 WTKK, as well as the Money Matters Radio Network. Before that, well … Brian did a lot of things!
He was a truck driver, teacher, bouncer, bartender, comedian, model, and Senior Derivatives Analyst at a Fortune 20 company. He turned down academic scholarships to Harvard and Princeton to play baseball in North Carolina, where he set 4 records that still stand. After graduating from Davidson College with a degree in Classical Languages, Brian toured the globe as a standup comedian, living in six cities on two continents. He has performed with the Dropkick Murphys and the Vagina Monologues, he covered Jon Stewart’s “Rally to Restore Sanity” for AOL TV, he appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland, and his voice work was featured on The Cartoon Network.
Brian is a featured blogger on Huffington Post, where he writes about politics, pop culture, news, and media. He was named one of Talk Radio’s Top 5 “Rising Stars” at the 2012 TSBC, an industry event featuring Glen Beck, Stephen A. Smith, Nancy Grace, and many other syndicated hosts. He has appeared on MTV, HLN, and various local networks, and he hosts his own Sunday morning show “Sunday Brunch” on Chattanooga’s Fox affiliate, Fox 61.
What sets Brian apart is the unique life experience he brings to the airwaves, as well as his keen intellect, killer sense of humor, and the conversational approach he brings to the day’s hottest topics.
Brian now hosts “The Brian Joyce Show” every Monday through Friday, 1-4 pm EST on Talk Radio 102.3 FM (Cumulus Media). His work as a radio host, comedian, writer, and pundit has been featured all over the world.
