Meet Erik Horne
Bringing you every Thunder game,
home and away.
As the OKC Thunder Senior Reporter, Erik Horne attends every game — home and away — and brings readers previews, analysis, and recaps they just can’t find anywhere else.
Horne joined The Oklahoman as a sports web editor and producer in September 2013, following a five-year stint at The Ardmoreite (Ardmore), first as a sports writer, then sports editor. At The Ardmoreite, Horne reported on everything from prep sports, to rodeo, to OU pro days, to monster truck rallies.
A native of LaPlace, La., located 25 miles west of New Orleans, Horne headed to Atlanta following high school, graduating from Oglethorpe University in 2007 as a four-year letterman in soccer. While in Atlanta, Horne worked two years as an intern and then sports editor for SCORE Atlanta, providing coverage of the Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta Falcons and high schools in the Atlanta metro area.
Horne lives in Oklahoma City.
