Niko Tamurian

Sports Director

Niko Tamurian is Sports Director at KOMO News bringing fun and unique perspective on all the teams in Seattle.

Niko comes to KOMO News to lead the charge on Pacific Northwest sports coverage after running the sports department at our affiliate in Syracuse, NY.

He's won several prestigious Edward R. Murrow awards and has been honored as the "Social Media Personality of the Year" multiple times in New York State.

Niko and his wife Farah live on the Eastside with their infant son Dario and three rescue dogs, a Dachshund named Jack, a Labrador-mix named Bear and a Pug called Bogey in honor of Niko's most frequent golf score.

He fell in love with Seattle on a honeymoon trip here and made several return visits before making it a goal to call our city home. You'll be sure to find him exploring all the wonderful spots and golf courses in the PNW.

Niko considers former KOMO sports anchors Mike Ferreri and Tim Lewis his longtime mentors and is thrilled to continue the outstanding sports tradition built by them and Eric Johnson.

He prides himself on digging deeper and getting answers to the questions on the minds of sports fans all over Western Washington.

Speaking of that: Bring back the Sonics!
