Andrew Krammer covers the Vikings for the Star Tribune, entering his sixth NFL season. From the Metrodome to U.S. Bank Stadium, he's reported on everything from Case Keenum's Minneapolis Miracle, the offensive line's kangaroo court to Adrian Peterson's suspension.

Krammer, a 2013 graduate of the University of Minnesota's Journalism program, got his start covering local news through internships for the Star Tribune and Pioneer Press in St. Paul. Krammer was born on the east coast, raised on the west coast and ended up in the middle. He transitioned to his first love, sports, by taking over the Vikings beat at 1500 ESPN in Minneapolis prior to joining the Star Tribune's coverage in July 2016. You can find him at a local barbecue joint, Anytime Fitness or national park (during the Vikings' offseason).
