Brad Galli is a hometown guy who understands the passion of the Detroit sports fan.
He covers sports for 7 Action News and hosts the 7 Sports Cave every Sunday morning at 11 a.m.
Brad grew up in metro-Detroit and is inspired by ordinary people in the city doing extraordinary things. When athletes step up to the plate, get to the line of scrimmage, or line up for a key faceoff, there is always the potential for something special to happen.
Those are the moments Brad thrives off of -- and the moments he loves bringing to life on TV.
"I believe the art of telling a story is only enhanced when an athlete decides to take a dull moment and make it great."
Brad earned his first Emmy in 2014 when he was named Best Sports Reporter in Michigan by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. He had previously been nominated in 2012 and 2013.
He also received a Merit Award from the Michigan Association of Broadcasters for Best Sportscast in 2014.
Brad has been inside NFL, NHL, MLB, NBA, and NCAA locker rooms and finds one consistent factor in all: at the end of the day athletes are people. Their backgrounds go further than sports. Bringing those tales to the loyal viewers of WXYZ is something Brad looks forward to most.
Brad lives in Oakland County and attended Brother Rice High School. He joined the WXYZ sports team in 2011. You can contact Brad by emailing him at email@example.com.
