Shams Charania Breaks News That Donald Trump Has COVID

NBA reporter Shams Charania broke the news late Thursday night that President Donald Trump has tested positive for COVID-19.

Shortly after Charania made the revelation, President Trump tweeted out a confirmation.

Charania’s tweet came seemingly seconds before the President’s.

Needless to say, Twitter had some interesting reactions to an NBA reporter known for breaking basketball news somehow getting the scoop on a story of this magnitude.

It was a night for the record books.

Charania, 26, is a sports reporter for The Athletic and contributor to Stadium. He initially joined the latter company in 2018 and re-signed with them this past week.

“The Sinclair Broadcast Group regional sports networks and Stadium couldn’t be more thrilled to keep Shams Charania as a part of our family and broadcasting community,” Sinclair Broadcast Group President of Local Sports Steve Rosenberg said in a statement.

“Throughout our work together, we’ve watched Shams quickly excel as one of the premier journalists in our industry. We have big plans for Shams across our sports portfolio and we’re excited to start that process immediately.”

Charania had similarly positive sentiments when it came to Stadium.

“Since the day I arrived, the teams at Stadium and Sinclair have demonstrated to me an incredible amount of passion, creativity and professionalism,” he said.

“After talking at length about our future together, the decision to stay was an easy one to make and I’m thrilled to be able to continue to call Stadium my home.”

Hopefully at some point in the coming days Charania will break down how he scooped every major media outlet regarding President Trump’s COVID status.

For now, he can just sit back and enjoy as his legend grows with every passing retweet.
