About Andy Dorf
Andy Dorf was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he became an avid fan of sports in his youth. His fan loyalty belonged to the hometown Bucks and Brewers, and of course, the Green Bay football Packers. Dorf got his start in sports, working in Brew City for WVTV Channel 24, producing the pre-game and post-game shows for the Milwaukee Bucks and Brewers.
Dorf attended the University of Minnesota, and later Arizona State in Tempe, Arizona. He has worked on both the AM and FM sides of the dial, at KESZ (99.9 FM), KDKB (93.3 FM), and KNIX (102.5 FM) in Phoenix. On the AM side, Dorf previously hosted a morning drive-time sports talk show on KDUS (1060 AM—Sporting News Radio), and a few programs on KMVP (860 AM—ESPN Radio Phoenix), including Dorf on Sports and Sports Junkies. Dorf eventually took his show to XTRA Sports 910, Phoenix’s FOX Sports affiliate, where he hosted a Morning show.
He hosted a television program, called Totally AZ Sports, and has regularly appeared as a guest on Channel 12 Sports Tonight with Bruce Cooper. Over the course of his broadcasting career, Dorf has interviewed the biggest names in the world of sports and entertainment. Whether it’s the big names in sports media like Seth Everett, Mike DeCourcy, and Richard Justice, the difference makers on the field, or professional funny men Frank Caliendo, Kevin Nealon, and many more, Dorf has talked to them all.
For the last 5 years, Dorf has been a Nationally Syndicated Sports Talk Show Host. Dorf’s current show, Dorf on Sports airs on Sports Byline Radio Network, which airs online, on Cox Cable Systems, several affiliates and Sirus/XM. With twenty years of experience under his belt in the media, Andy aspires to take the Dorf on Sports radio show to new heights. His show features an eclectic range of guests, topics, and general entertainment.
Off the air, Dorf puts his money where his mouth is—on the tennis court, from the tips at TPC, or climbing to the peaks of many a mountain in the Southwest—Dorf lives sports. He is sports, teaching tennis to youngsters in what little spare time he has; he’s always on the lookout for one thing. That one thing is greatness. Be great, and you will have his attention.
About Jeff Rich
Jeff Rich was born in Cleveland, Ohio, a place where the agony of defeat rears its ugly head much more often than the thrill of victory. Despite the less-than-spectacular circumstances that surround being a fan in Northeast Ohio, sports have been a large part of Jeff’s life, as an athlete and later in life as a commentator on the games. He credits his father, a lifelong youth football coach, for helping to understand and appreciate the intricacies of the game.
Rich got his start in sports media at a young age, working as a High School Football Correspondent for WELW radio in Willoughby, Ohio. Jeff tabled his goal of working in sports media to serve in the United States Marine Corps. After traveling the world to serve our country, Jeff made Arizona his permanent home in 2001, just in time to see the Arizona Diamondbacks take down the New York Yankees dynasty and bring Phoenix its only major sports championship to date.
Around 2006, Jeff began writing a blog and became a guest correspondent on the radio for the Genesis Sports Network. A few of Jeff’s articles, including pieces on Alex Rodriguez’s PED suspension and a suggestion for how to improve the BCS were featured on ESPN.com’s home page. In addition to his guest contributions for Genesis, Rich would occasionally serve as a fill-in host for the Sunday Morning show on the network. In 2012, he was hired by the partner site of SportsTime Ohio, the cable TV partner of the Cleveland Indians, where he covered the Browns, Cavaliers, and Indians. Jeff’s primary assignment was coverage of the Cactus League during Spring Training, on location in the valley.
In 2014, he pivoted towards exclusive College Football coverage for College Football Roundtable (now Campus Pressbox). Rich’s College Football coverage included discussing national stories on the site’s podcast, writing editorials on the Pac-12 Conference, and on-location coverage of Arizona State home games. Around that time, Jeff was brought on to Sports Byline’s Sunday morning show as a correspondent, and was promoted to co-host the Dorf on Sports radio program shortly thereafter.
Over the last 15 years, Jeff has developed a soft spot for the Valley teams, though they weren’t his first love. Going forward, Rich is excited to see the Phoenix market grow into a legitimate player on the national scene.
About Mike Wilson
Mike Wilson grew up in Wilsonville, Oregon on a small 12-acre farm. His love of sports came from his father and mother who showed Mike and his two younger brothers the joy of being on a team, hard work, and what it means to make a commitment. Mike enjoyed playing soccer, basketball, and football. Mike’s father was an avid sportsman who was into basketball and fast pitch softball.
The influence of Mike’s father was immense. He made an indoor basketball court and a batting cage inside the family barn, so Mike and his brothers could practice and play even when the Oregon rain would make playing outside impossible.
As a youngster, Mike enjoyed reading about sport stars, knowing the history of their career, learning the history of different sports and respecting the history of sports. One of aspects of Mike’s young life was the desire to cover sports and commentate on them for a living.
Mike went to Oregon State University where he graduated with a B.S. degree in Communications and later got a Master’s degree in Education, where he has been working in education since in 1995.
Mike finally got his break into sports writing when he started writing for Campuspressbox.com in 2014. He covered the Arizona State Sun Devils and the rest of the Pac-12. In 2016 Mike made the move to Pacifictakes.com/SB Nation. He’s covering the Pac-12, Arizona State, the Pac-12 Football Championship Game, Pac-12 Football Media Days, and Pac-12 Basketball Tournament. Mike has also had the opportunity to meet and interview interesting sports personalities, such Yogi Roth of the Pac-12 Network as well as the 2017 Pac-12 Basketball Hall of Honor Inductees.
Mike is a contributor on Sports Byline USA on their Dorf on Sports Radio Show. He has also had radio appearances on the SB Nation Radio Show as well. Mike will also be a co-host on the Dorf on Sports Radio Show on NBC Sports Radio AM 1060.
When Mike isn’t writing, he is all about his wife, Heather, and his two kids, Taylor and Zach. He loves going to games with the family, especially if the game involves his beloved Oregon State Beavers. Mike is diehard in his feelings for the Beavers.
When Mike writes or speaks on the radio he wants to communicate to the larger picture of a given story. He hopes to bring this to the radio show on NBC Sports as well Pacifictakes.com.
