Peter Sampson is host of The Pulse with Peter Sampson, weekdays 6-7 p.m. on The GAME. Sampson is also an update anchor, board-operator and fill-in show host. You can find him on the board and behind the mic weekdays during the Jim Rome Show, Maggie & Perloff and sometimes on the Bald Faced Truth with John Canzano.
Sampson previously hosted The Pulse on Saturdays on The GAME from 12-3pm, and before that was host of The Last Quarter, an NBA wrap-up show that aired immediately after every Trail Blazers game.
Peter got his start in radio at Portland State University, honing his chops while hosting a Blazers-centric NBA talk show. After graduation, he moved on to Blazer’s Edge, the internet’s most popular Trail Blazers website, where he began writing features, opinion pieces, and game previews. After being interviewed by an out-of-state terrible afternoon drive show, Peter decided to create another radio show on his own, which ended up being named “Best Sports Radio in Portland” by Willamette Week in 2017.
Peter’s die-hard fans refer to themselves as “the Sampsonites.” When he’s not on-air, you can find Peter working in his home-studio in the basement, cooking gourmet Mediterranean food in the kitchen, or watching cartoons with his son on the couch.
Peter also previously hosted his (not-safe-for-radio) sports/news/music/culture podcast, ‘The Peter Sampson Show.’
