Radnich was born and raised in San Jose, California to Bill and Evelyn Radunich. He was an All-American Basketball player at Del Mar High School and Branham High.
His college career began at Brigham Young University on a basketball scholarship, and he transferred to UNLV after two years. While in Vegas he received notoriety for his purple El Dorado Cadillac, known as ("Raddy's Caddy").
Called "The biggest name in Bay Area Broadcasting" by Ann Killion of the San Jose Mercury News, Radnich has been sports director at KRON-TV since 1985, and has been a talk show host at KNBR radio since 1992. He started his broadcast career at KVVU in Henderson, Nevada. From there, were stints at KTXL in Sacramento, California and KMPH-TV in Fresno, California. From 1982-1985, Radnich served as the sports director at WBNS-TV in Columbus, Ohio, where he also called Ohio State Buckeyes football games. His radio program runs from 9 a.m. to noon.
On KRON, Radnich hosts "The World According to Gary" (a pun on The World According to Garp).
Radnich lives in San Francisco with his wife, former KRON producer Alicia Radnich. Together they host a Friday night "Letters to the Editor" segment at KRON. They have three children, Jolie, Isabella and Spencer. Radnich also has three grown children, Kelly, Douglas and Stephanie.
His mother, Evelyn, was featured on ABC's Nightline, in a show about retirement communities.
In 2010 Radnich was inducted into the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame. He has been honored three times by Associated Press, for the Best Television Sports cast in California.
In 2006 and 2007, the SF Weekly named Radnich "Best Sportscaster", noting that his broadcasts are "spontaneous" and that he "knows sports".
