Landry's interest in radio began at an early age, when he first noticed the tower lights of WENE-AM (1340) outside his bedroom window.
His entry in broadcasting was at WMCG-TV in Binghamton, NY, where Charlie Hallinan introduced him to the SBE. His career later took him to New Hampshire and then to Boston stations WBZ and WHDH.
From there it was on to Cleveland, as chief engineer of sports powerhouse WKNR-AM 1220. Many remotes and a World Series later, it was back east to WALK FM on Long Island, and then to the networks in New York City; first at ABC and now at CBS.
