Brian Robin , Senior Account Executive
An award-winning writer, Robin brings a 17-year journalism background to BZA, which he joined in 2003. An award-winning sports writer, Robin came to BZA after spending nearly 2 ½ years as a sports reporter and columnist for the Inland Valley edition of the Los Angeles Times. There, he covered high school sports and golf, in addition to writing a weekly column recognized as the region’s best in 2000 and 2001 by the Inland Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. Before moving to the Times, Robin was a columnist, general assignment reporter and golf writer at the Antelope Valley Press for 7½ years, where he covered everything from Rose Bowls and Cotton Bowls to the Stanley Cup Finals to three Big League Softball World Series in Kalamazoo,
Mich. In between those duties and writing a widely-read column, Robin revamped the paper’s golf coverage, covering six Nissan Opens and the first two WGC-Accenture Match Play Championships, as well as three majors and numerous other events throughout Southern California.
At BZA, Robin is the senior account executive on the agency’s highly respected golf team. He has run or assisted in the running of media centers for 22 events on the PGA, Champions, LPGA and Nationwide tours in locales from New Zealand to Bermuda and has drawn praise from both media and clients for his ability to professionally handle both of their sometime-disparate needs in a mutually beneficial and productive manner. He also handles publicity for Fallen Oak, the Tom Fazio-designed course located outside Biloxi, Miss. Since it’s opening, Fallen Oak has won nearly 30 national awards from publications and now plays host to the Champions Tour’s Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic.
Robin has also worked on accounts ranging from publicizing golf books and clubs to FOX Soccer, where he scheduled and established radio interviews for network talent such as Eric Wynalda, Kyle Martino and Warren Barton. He was part of a team that promoted the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup game between the United States and Mexico – a telecast that brought the network the biggest ratings in its history.
A 1988 graduate of Cal State Fullerton, Robin also taught journalism in the School of Arts and Communications at the University of La Verne for six years.
