One of the most celebrated journalists in Denver Broncos history has left the fold.
Adam Schefter, who for the past fifteen-years has been the main beat reporter covering the Broncos for the Denver Post, will resign his duties with the paper to accept a full-time position with the NFL Network beginning Aug. 16.
According to sources Schefter will be contributing regular on-air reports, features and commentaries for the only year-round National Football League news show, NFL Total Access. In addition he will also be contributing stories to NFL.com.
Long recognized as the resident Broncos expert, Schefter has been a regular contributor to Denver's NBC-TV affiliate, KUSA-Channel 9, for the past eight- years. He frequently appeared on the Broncos' flagship station, KOA Radio, where he was the host of two pre-game programs and co-hosted an in-season Thursday night show. In addition, he has been an NFL correspondent for FOX Radio's nationally broadcast morning program with Tony Bruno and appeared on ESPN's The Sports Reporters.
At 37-years old, Schefter has been the longest running beat reporter in Denver franchise history, authoring two books along the way, Mike Shanahan's motivational book, Think Like a Champion, and Terrell Davis' autobiography, TD: Dreams in Motion. A third book, due out in November, will cover the life story of former Bronco Bill Romonowski.
A two-time winner of the Colorado Sportswriter of the Year award began his career as co-sports editor of the Michigan Daily with NFL Total Access host Rich Eisen. He received his master's degree in journalism from Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism.
