Best known for his time on the field, former New York Giants football player Tiki Barber serves as co-host of CBS Sports Radio’s “Tiki & Tierney”.
At the University of Virginia, Barber excelled both academically and athletically – football and track and field. He left the Cavaliers as their all-time leading rusher and began a 10-year NFL career with the New York Giants. In January 2007, Barber’s alma mater retired the #21, and in January 2011, he was inducted into the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame, located in Portsmouth, Va.
Barber is one of three NFL players in football history with at least 10,000 yards rushing and 5,000 yards receiving in a career – the other two being Marshall Faulk and Marcus Allen. He retired ranking third all-time in yards per carry (4.7) and 10th all-time in yards from scrimmage (15,632; rushing and receiving). He holds almost every NY Giants rushing record – total yards, rushing yards, rushing attempts and is second in rushing touchdowns.
As one of the bright, electric voices in sports talk radio, Brooklyn native Brandon Tierney has made a name for himself as a respected, entertaining, insightful and well-informed personality. Currently, he co-hosts CBS Sports Radio’s “Tiki & Tierney” alongside former New York Giants football player, Tiki Barber.
Additionally, Tierney is an analyst on CBS Sports Network’s “THAT OTHER PREGAME SHOW,” broadcast Sunday mornings during the NFL season.
Tierney has been featured on Talkers Magazine’s “Heavy Hundred of Sports Talk” recognizing the 100 most important sports radio hosts in America since its inception in 2012. He earned a degree in journalism from Marist College while also lettering in baseball.
