In addition to his ESPN and BU jobs, Brown has also been doing freelance work for the National Hockey League for 15 years.
“I do reports that are inserted on flagship stations of NHL teams, like 98.5 in Boston for the Bruins,” Brown clarified. “They might be intermission reports or other short segments.”
The Bruins’ exciting run to the Stanley Cup Final this past season was an additional treat for Brown while doing his NHL bits.
Brown’s biggest frustration while working at ESPN? “Not being in the middle of the amazing streak the Boston teams have had since 2001,” Brown admitted. “All four teams have won championships; the Patriots three in four years, the Red Sox two World Series in four years after going dry for 86 years. I guess I was close enough to it and I go to report on a lot of it across the country. That was some consolation.”
He looks forward to reporting on more Boston pro team successes as his prolific sports broadcasting career continues at ESPN Radio and beyond.
