A Brief Bio of our SIR Luncheon Speaker

Monday, May 13, 2019

Cam Inman will be the speaker at our SIR Luncheon on Monday, May 13.

Cam Inman covers sports for the Bay Area News Group, specializing in the 49ers and the NFL. A Bay Area native, he grew up in Cupertino at the same time as Apple Computer, and he turned pro as a sportswriter at age 16.

Cam joined the Contra Costa Times chain in 1995, starting out in Pleasanton covering high schools and youth sports before moving onto the pros in 2000. He’s been a 49ers beat writer in two stints, from 2000-04 and 2011 to the present. He’s also served as a general sports columnist, and a NFL columnist.  Cam is an avid fan of golf, craft beer and, most especially, his three children who have survived his questionable coaching.

Please bring your questions for this fun and interesting discussion at our next luncheon.
