Get to know Bill Oram, The Oregonian’s new sports columnist

For the first time in two decades, the Oregonian has a new sports columnist.
On the latest episode of Beat Check with The Oregonian, we chat with Bill Oram.
We talked about his extensive experience covering the Los Angeles Lakers, why he wanted to come home to Oregon, what he thinks of some of the major stories in the sports landscape today and much more.
A quick programming note – we talked right before – like minutes before – Damian Lillard signed a max contract extension, but the questions about the franchise’s future are still relevant.
