SR. NBA INSIDER
Adrian Wojnarowski joined ESPN in July, 2017 as Sr. NBA Insider. Wojnarowski’s role includes breaking news, reporting stories and features and providing insights from across the NBA and around the basketball world for ESPN’s multiple media, including digital, television, audio and print.
Among the most highly regarded voices covering the NBA, Wojnarowski is central in ESPN’s multimedia coverage of the NBA throughout the year — covering the league, its teams, players, free agency, the NBA Draft, the NBA Summer League and more. His reporting, insights and analysis now appear on ESPN.com and in the ESPN app, and he is to be featured on SportsCenter, NBA Countdown, The Jump, E:60, Outside the Lines and other programs to provide both news and feature reporting.
He also appears regularly on ESPN Radio programs and periodically contributes features to ESPN The Magazine. Additionally, Wojnarowski hosts a regular NBA-focused podcast on the DGital Media podcast network.
Wojnarowski is also the New York Times best-selling author of “The Miracle of St. Anthony: A Season with Coach Bob Hurley and Basketball’s Most Improbable Dynasty.”
Prior to his work for ESPN, Wojnarowski worked for Yahoo Sports, where he spent nearly 10 years, including two as editor of The Vertical. His standout career in journalism includes nearly 10 years at The Record (where he was twice named the APSE “Columnist of the Year”), as well as several years each at The Fresno Bee (Calif.) and The Waterbury Republican-American (Conn.).
A native of Bristol, Conn., Wojnarowski began his career as a sports clerk for the Hartford Courant and intern for the Olean Times Herald (NY) while still in high school and college.
He is a 1991 graduate of St. Bonaventure University in Allegany, NY and a 1987 graduate of Bristol Central High School (BCHS), where, with the help of Gale Dickau, an English teacher of 50-plus years at BCHS, Wojnarowki began “The Writing Initiative” in 2017. The multifaceted program encourages students at Bristol Central High School to write and helps them develop and hone their skills, funds scholarships and develops teacher enrichment programs for educators teaching writing.
