Brady Safranek

General Manager / Bison Sports/

Buffalo, Wyoming

Brady Safranek

Brady is the General Manager and Sports Director for the Big Horn Mountain Radio Network. Working in radio has allowed Brady to live in numerous states including South Dakota, Minnesota, and Iowa, before settling out west in beautiful Wyoming. Brady is originally from Illinois and decided he wanted to get into the radio business because he didn’t want a real job.  Spinning records (ok we don’t spin records anymore) and entertaining listeners sure sounded better than digging ditches or stamping license plates, so after finishing high school Brady went to broadcasting school at Brown College in Minnesota. Brady’s favorite part of his job is calling high school sports for the Buffalo Bison and Lady Bison. In his spare time, Brady likes to go hiking with his dog, camping, and especially fishing! He listens to all types of music but really loves to jam out to almost anything from the 1990s.
