Keynote speaker for this year’s CYO/Camp Howard Champions of Faith dinner will be John Canzano — sports columnist and radio talk show host.

Canzano has worked at six daily newspapers including the San Jose Mercury News and the Fresno Bee. Canzano began writing for The Oregonian in 2002. He currently serves as the paper’s lead sports columnist. He appears twice weekly on KGW-TV, where he offers commentary and analysis on sports. Canzano also hosts a daily radio show called “The Bald-Faced Truth” on Portland’s 750 AM.

He is a member of the Baseball Writers Association of America and holds a Baseball Hall of Fame Vote, is a voter for the Heisman Trophy, and has made TV appearances on ESPN2, ESPN News and ESPN’s SportsCenter. Canzano’s work has also appeared in GQ magazine and The Sporting News among other publications.

He has won several Associated Press Sports Editors awards. In 2010, the Society of Professional Journalists named Canzano the National Sports Columnist of the Year for his work the prior year. In 2009, Canzano was voted America’s No. 1 sports columnist by the APSE. In 2007 and 2008, the Associated Press named Canzano the nation’s No. 2 sports columnist among large-circulation newspapers, with Canzano finishing second to the Los Angeles Times’ Bill Plaschke both times. Canzano was recognized by The Press Club of Atlantic City as national sportswriter of the year in 2004.

In 2012, Canzano won first place in column writing in the Best of the West contest for his portfolio of columns that included a column on a soldier who died in action in Afghanistan and Canzano’s own experience coaching a girls fourth-grade volleyball team with a player who has Down syndrome.

In 2002, Canzano was named the nation’s top investigative sports writer by the Associated Press News Executives Council for his enterprise piece on Carlos Rodriguez, a 21-year-old Dominican basketball star who was masquerading as a 17-year-old high school basketball player.

Canzano is a three-time Oregon Sportswriter of the Year winner.
He graduated from California State University, Chico, in 1995 with a B.A. in English.

In 2009, Canzano co-founded The Bald Faced Truth Foundation, a non-profit, all-volunteer organization that aims to fund extracurricular activities for kids. The foundation offers grants to children who hope to participate in the areas of arts, music, drama, education, athletics and other enriching extra-curricular activities.

He is married to KATU-TV anchor/reporter Anna Canzano, and has one daughter.
