Career[edit]

Tighe was Westwood One's primary studio host for its sports broadcasts. He hosted the pre- and post-game studio shows for The NFL on Westwood One and has since been replaced by Scott Graham. Tighe also hosted the network's coverage of NCAA college basketball and football (except for Westwood One's Notre Dame football coverage, which was produced separately from the weekly college football package Westwood One airs). In addition, he hosted the Westwood One recap show NFL Sunday, which aired an hour prior to the Westwood one Sunday Night Football broadcast.[1]

Also, prior to 2004, Tighe hosted the pre- and post- game shows for Monday Night Football on the network, but was replaced by Jim Gray.

Tighe's other credits for Westwood One include U.S. Open tennis coverage, a weekday sports recap show called "Sportstime", and a weekend sports report segment known as "Sports Central USA," which he did prior to taking over as pre-game host for nearly all sports broadcasts on the network.[2] Mr. Tighe is also the captain of the five-time champion Thursday Night Bowling team 'Tommy's Tools.'
