Pearson began broadcasting NFL games since 2003 after spending several years calling college football for ESPN Plus, often paired with Chris Marlowe on Mountain West Conference games. Pearson worked for Fox, calling games as one of the lower tier broadcast teams. He eventually became a regular middle-tier broadcaster in 2005, working alongside Curt Menefee and later Matt Vasgersian.

Pearson left Fox following the 2008 season to return to ESPN to call college football games on ESPN2 and ESPN with Dave Lamont. In 2010, Pearson did the air analysis for college football games on Fox Sports Net. On Dec. 26, 2010 he did the Little Caesars Bowl between Florida International and Toledo.

Pearson is now part of the afternoon radio show on 610_Sports in Kansas City called "The Big Show" with Jay Binkley and Josh Vernier from 2-6 Central. This show replaces "What's Right with Nick Wright" when he moved to KILT_(AM) in Houston on June 1, 2012.
