About Me

Hey there, thanks for stopping by! My name is Sam Brief, and I'm the Play-by-Play Broadcaster and Media Relations Manager for the American Association's Chicago Dogs.


I graduated in 2019 from Northwestern University's Medill School, where I was fortunate to serve as Sports Director of our school's radio station, WNUR. I got to step behind the mic for baseball, basketball, football, softball, volleyball and lacrosse for both WNUR and the Big Ten Network's Student U broadcasts. It was a constant thrill ride.

During the summer of 2018, I hit the beaches of Cape Cod as a play-by-play broadcaster for the Cotuit Kettleers of the Cape Cod Baseball League. In Cotuit, I thrived on the beautiful grind of small-town daily baseball (and lobster rolls!). I'll always treasure that summer.

After a childhood spent doing Madden play-by-play in my basement, I kicked my passion into high gear during my high school years in the Chicago suburbs, where I ushered in a partnership between the NFHS Network and our school's athletics department.

You can also listen to my play-by-play demos, plus read my writing work and résumé, by clicking on the above menu bar. Again, thanks for visiting my website!
