It was at WCBS-AM where he received the 2002 and 2003 recipient of the "AIR Award," which recognized him as the best radio sports anchor in the New York City market.

Professional wrestling career

WWE (2009-Present)

Stanford debuted in 2009 replacing Jack Korpela as the host of The Bottom Line. In October 2010, he became the new play-by-play commentator for WWE Superstars replacing Michael Cole. He called his first episode on the October 7 episode of Superstars with Jerry Lawler. This team was short-lived, however, as in mid-November injured wrestler CM Punk, who had started commentating on WWE Raw, replaced Lawler on Superstars. At the end of December, Punk left the commentary team after assaulting John Cena on Raw and SmackDown with a chair. Starting on the December 31 episode of Superstars, Josh Mathews joined Stanford as the color commentator. In addition to his commentary duties, he hosts the PPV Preshow every month, along with Jack Korpela. Stanford also makes appearances in Zack Ryder's weekly Z! True Long Island Story YouTube series. On the show, Stanford revealed that he was the man who attacked, Chiapetta, Ryder's best friend, becoming a heel in the process. This was later proven false as it was Stanford's exact look-alike, Rot (wearing a "#Heel" Jacket), who performed the ambush. Stanford is currently Host of the Monday Night Raw Pre-show on WWE Network.
