Andy Adler, Former WNYW Sports Reporter, Joins Lakers Broadcast Team

Andy Adler, seeking a return to sports broadcasting, is making a splash with the new Los Angeles-based Time Warner Cable SportsNet. She’ll be studio host for its Lakers coverage.

Adler, who in February left her news reporting and anchoring at KNBC, sought a return to sports broadcasting.

Before that, she made her name in New York during a three-year stint as the popular sports reporter at WNYW/Channel 5.

Part of the deal takes Adler back to her roots. She’ll also host for sister station Time Warner Cable Deportes. Adler’s first language growing up in SoCal was Spanish.

“I was actually their first hire,” Adler tells FishbowlNY. “…They’re building this from the ground up, and to me there’s nothing cooler than that.”

Former KNBC Reporter Andy Adler Tipped for Lakers Double Duty

Our colleague Jerry Barmash at FishbowlNY has the scoop today on the latest broadcast name to hitch a ride with the Los Angeles Lakers. Beginning October 1, former NBC Southern California and WNYW Channel 5 sports reporter Andy Adler (pictured) will anchor LA Lakers coverage on Time Warner Cable’s SportsNet as that network’s in-studio game broadcast host.

And because Adler is fluent in Spanish, she will – get this – be switching back and forth during Lakers game days to also anchor Spanish-language coverage on Time Warner Cable Deportes. From Barmash’s report:

Making this project extra special for Adler is the chance to speak Spanish to viewers on a local station dedicated to sports. “Nothing like that has really ever been done,” Adler admits. “It’s just cool.”

Adler tells FishbowlNY exclusively that she is excited to resume her sportscasting career, at an undisclosed location March 1.

“I miss my sports. I miss it,” Adler admits. ”This is my passion. This is what I do when I’m not working.” 

Adler missed it even more when she was called on for occasional sports reporting at KNBC.

“Every time I did it, I just left like this is home,” Adler admits. “It was just time to do it permanently.”

After graduation from Stanford University, Adler started her career at KNBC as a page.
