A native of Pittsburgh, PA and a hardcore Pirates and Steelers fan, Bob began in radio career in 1972 and worked all over the western US, several times in the L-A market. He's currently a news anchor at CBS Radio LA; KNX 1070 News Radio.

A baseball historian, Bob writes the very popular weekly column found at www.baseballinthe1960s.com. He also is a podcaster who has teamed with former NFL Quarterback Erik Kramer for a weekly Fantasy Football Podcast called Kramer and Brill, which can be found where ever you get your podcasts or at their website www.kramerandbrill.com. Both are always posted on Facebook as well as Twitter.
Bob made his mark with the UPI Radio Network when a gunman went crazy in a San Diego fast food restaurant and Bob covered the story. It was his first big break. He later became a UPI National Correspondent and Bureau Chief. He has interviewed presidents, covered Super Bowl games and Hollywood as well as major news stories.
He lives in L-A. He has survived earthquakes and a beating during the 1992 L-A riots while covering the story, which was recorded on audio tape.
Bob is considered to have an excellent voice and has not only done many voice overs and radio spots, he's starred in television commercials. Bob authored "Fan Letters to a Stripper: A Patti Waggin Tale" from Schiffer Publishing and "NO BARRIER: How the Internet Destroyed the World Economy." His third book "Al Kabul; Home Grown Terrorist" is sure to be a controversial novel as well as a great read. "Lancer; Hero of the West - The Prescott Affair" is the first in a series of western novels set in the 1880's, centering on the central figure; Lancer. Lancer is a gun for hire, good guy, who works the West out of Tombstone.
Lancer is a compilation of the western television heroes of the 1950's and 1960's. Combined with award winning writer Bob Brill's own ideas of what a man of justice of the 1880's should be, Lancer is a man everyone would like to call friend. Women would like to call him more than a friend and they often do.
Lancer, a world traveler, likes the finer things in life but he's not afraid to get down and dirty. Well bred and well read, he often quotes Shakespeare or the great poets and philosophers.
A man of the people, Lancer is someone you'd love to meet and you are certainly glad he's on your side. He has a sweet tooth as well, always carrying in his saddle bags a small box of Turkish Delight.
His great horse Lincoln is a mighty steed and named after the Great American President, Lincoln is as trusted as it gets. A song about Lancer; Hero of the West, written by Oscar and Grammy winners (Al Kasha and Ron Dante) and performed by Dante, can be found on YouTube.
