Stann appears on Howard Stern show

Scranton native and Scranton Prep grad Brian Stann made a surprise appearance on the Howard Stern show this morning on Sirius satellite radio.

Stann, the light heavyweight champion of World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC), stopped by the show to present a check on behalf of WEC to a contest winner but wound up being interviewed by Stern and his staff for nearly 30 minutes.

Stann served two tours in Iraq as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps and received the Silver Star. He spoke to Stern about his experience in Iraq, leading young Marines into battle and working to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure. Stern was clearly impressed not only by Stann’s accomplished WEC career but his bravery in serving our country.

Stann has done Northeastern Pennsylvania proud and we’re glad he’s getting the recognition he deserves.
