BRYAN PERRI ~ SPORTS & ENTERTAINMENT HOST
Bryan Perri grew up in Brooklyn, NY dreaming of becoming a professional hockey player. After schooling conflicted with his athletic schedule, he came to the realization that the career of a professional athlete wasn't for him. While Bryan was growing up, he didn't only play hockey, but he watched it as much as he could. His two idols included New York Rangers goaltender Mike Richter and Rangers broadcaster Sam Rosen. Bryan would do his best imitations of Sam while riding in long car rides with his father along with expressing his interest in possibly pursuing a career in broadcasting.
While Bryan was injured and unable to play hockey, he and his father flew out to Salt Lake City for the 2002 Paralympic Winter games. Bryan was only allowed to miss a week of school on one condition; if he wrote a report on his experience out in Utah. Sure enough, a week later Bryan returned to New York with a twenty-four page report which included exclusive interviews with Paralympian athletes and stories about the amazing people he had the pleasure of meeting. He claims the trip changed his life and from that point on he's been determined to make it as a sports broadcaster.
In recent years Bryan has co-hosted a show on MSG Network in New York and has worked as a hockey blogger for TV4 in Sweden. He was a finalist in the 1010 Wins Tomorrows Newsmakers competition in 2007 and has attended the Bruce Beck and Ian Eagle sports broadcasting camp. He is a graduate of LaGuardia High School majoring in Drama and Montclair State University with a degree in Broadcasting. In the fall of 2010; Bryan worked as an intern for "The Daily Line", a nightly sports recap show, airing at 11:00pm Monday-Thursday on Versus (Now the NBC Sports Network).
