Vic the Brick and Sports Broadcasting
A native of Queens, NY, and a graduate of Cornell University, Vic “The Brick” has been a sports broadcaster since 1979 in markets including Austin, TX; Fresno, CA; Phoenix, AZ, and Los Angeles, CA. Vic “The Brick” was sports anchor for KCOP-TV in Los Angeles and sports anchor for “Rick Dees In the Morning Show” on KIIS-FM in Los Angeles in the early 1990s. In 1997, he helped launch the new sports-talk format at L.A.’s KXTA 1150 AM, now KEIB, as Middays host. He went on to team with NBA superstar and future Hall of Famer Karl Malone and NFL Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw in hosting duties. Vic “The Brick” is credited with popularizing the catch phrase, “Feeling You!”, a cry of allegiance with the fans of L.A. sports fans. He is also known for another favorite phrase, an enthusiastic “C’mon” and “C’mon, now!”, as an encouragement to callers and fans.
Dave “Chachi” Denes, Benztown President, said: “Vic was one of the very first people to welcome me to L.A. when I moved here 18 years ago. His warmth and authenticity instantly endeared me to him. He is the same person on-air as he his in real life and that’s why I think he’s a star. We’re excited to have him as the voice of “This Day in Sports History” which comes free of charge on a daily basis to all of our Adrenaline library affiliates.”
Vic “The Brick” Jacobs, said: “Sports fans… Feeling You! Honored and humbled to be in this mighty mix of el gigante audio dynamite.”
