In 1976 Brando was a disc jockey at radio station KROK-FM in his native Shreveport, Louisiana. From 1981 to 1986, Brando was the assistant sports director at WAFB-TV in Baton Rouge; he did telecasts of Louisiana State University men's and women's basketball on Tigervision. From 1986 to 1994, he served as a studio host for SportsCenter, for ESPN's college football halftime show, and for the network's coverage of the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship. In 1994, he provided play-by-play for TNT's coverage of the NBA Playoffs. Brando also called Atlanta Hawks and Atlanta Braves games for SportSouth. Brando also auditioned for the daytime version of Wheel of Fortune after Pat Sajak resigned to concentrate on his self-titled talk show. Ultimately, the hosting job went to Rolf Benirschke.

In 1996, Brando joined CBS Sports and began calling NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship games. Three years later, he added hosting duties on College Football Today, which is the broadcast network home of SEC football. He also provided play-by-play for the NFL on CBS from 1998 to 2003.

Brando called the four games in Tampa, Florida, during the 2008 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament where for the first time ever, all four lower seeded teams won in the same venue on the same day.

On June 25, 2014, Fox Sports announced that it had hired Brando to serve as a play-by-play voice for college football and college basketball games on Fox and Fox Sports 1 starting in fall 2014. He was also named as a backup NFL announcer for Fox in October of that year. He was in the booth for FOX on October 19, 2014 for the Minnesota Vikings at the Buffalo Bills.

In addition to his network duties, Brando calls games for Raycom's coverage of the Atlantic Coast Conference basketball telecasts. Brando also hosts Raycom's Emmy Award-winning show, "Football Saturdays."

Brando's father, Hub Brando, was a broadcaster at radio station KCIJ in Shreveport. Tim Brando graduated in 1974 from Fair Park High School in Shreveport. He then attended Northeast Louisiana University in Monroe (now the University of Louisiana at Monroe). He resides in Shreveport with his wife of 41 years, Terri Glorioso Brando. The couple has two daughters: Tiffany Brando Crews, 37, who attended Louisiana State University; and Tara Brando Sullivan, 29, who graduated from Ole Miss.[citation needed] Brando welcomed his first grandchild, Wilma Scarlett Sullivan, on September 7, 2016 and his first grandson, Spencer Brando Crews, on June 28, 2017. Spencer was named after Brando's colleague and close family friend, Spencer Tillman.[citation needed]
