Sam Pirozzi joined the NBC Nebraska News 2 Team in September 2019 as the Weekend Sports Anchor/Reporter.

Born and raised in the Greater Boston Area, Sam joins the NBC Nebraska News 2 team excited to launch his television career. He graduated from Curry College in May 2019 with a degree in Sports Journalism.

Sam knew he wanted a career in sports from a young age and got lots of hands on experience in the media industry during his time at college. A member of the Curry College radio station during all four years of school, he called games for numerous teams and hosted his own weekly sports talk show, “Boston Bases”, while also working as the Assistant Sports Director his junior and senior year.

Outside Curry College, Sam gained extensive experience in the television industry by interning for Boston’s CBS and former NBC affiliate in the sports department. He also worked at 98.5 The Sports Hub and was an assistant for the Patriots pre and post game show during their Super Bowl Championship season in 2018.

Sam looks forward to what Nebraska has to offer and where it will take him. In his free time, you can find him out on the golf course, the gym, passionately rooting for Boston sports and keeping in touch with friends and family back home.
