Adam Bjaranson is a Sports Anchor and Reporter at KGW News Channel 8.

Adam grew up along Oregon’s north coast, Warrenton to be precise, and is a graduate of Portland State University.

He is the host of KGW’s popular Sports Sunday show, and during prep season he also anchors KGW’s long-running Friday Night Football special with prep highlights from across the region.

Adam balances his role on the KGW Sports team, along with his continuing duties as the Studio Host for the Portland Trail Blazers pre- and postgame shows on Comcast Sports Net and on local affiliate KGW. Adam is entering his 4th season in that role with the Trail Blazers.

Adam began his broadcasting career in Coos Bay, Oregon in 1997. Following a brief stint there, he moved on to the Tri-Cities, Washington, before coming to Portland in 2001. Adam dabbled in some minor acting roles in a handful of movies that were shot in Oregon.

When Adam isn’t following his favorite sports teams (Blazers, Raiders and A’s), you can usually find him trying to lower his handicap index on many of Oregon’s outstanding golf courses.

Adam resides in Beaverton with his wife Lindsay, newborn son Cade, and their two beagles Murphy and Oden.
