Pat McAfee Confronts Shams Charania on Dating Rumors With NFL Host Kay Adams

After months of dating rumors regarding Shams Charania and NFL host Kay Adams, Pat McAfee bluntly asked the NBA insider about their relationship.

Rumors have been swirling for months regarding NBA insider Shams Charania’s relationship with NFL host Kay Adams. On Friday’s edition of “The Pat McAfee Show,” Charania was asked about his connection with Adams.

Shams Charania Asked If He’s Dating Kay Adams

During the show, McAfee stopped his conversation with Charania to bluntly ask, “Are you and Kay Adams dating?”

“That’s a great colleague of mine. I think she’s amazing. I enjoy going on her show,” Charania said. “You make me feel comfortable on your show. She makes me feel comfortable on her show. We saw the Super Bowl together. We were in the FanDuel suite.”

McAfee asked the question one more time since he hadn’t received a straight answer.

Charania replied, “I wouldn’t classify myself as anything.”

Speculation regarding Charania and Adams’ relationship dates back to the fall of 2022, with the two FanDuel employees having made a habit of flirting on her show “Up & Adams.”

When asked if she was with Charania for Super Bowl Sunday, Adams posted a photo of the two together on X, using the word “besties.”

This appears to have been an attempt to dispel the dating rumors.

It’s also worth noting that Charania got Adams a surprise gift for Valentine’s Day. He bought her a pair of red John Geiger sneakers. His gift included this note: “With much love and admiration for you as a person.”

Charania is an American sports reporter for The Athletic and Stadium, where he covers the NBA.

He began his sportswriting career at age 17, covering the Chicago Bulls for ChicagoNow, a subsidiary of the Chicago Tribune. In 2012, Charania began writing for RealGM and reporting small transactions around the league. After several years, Charania caught the attention of Adrian Wojnarowski, who then worked for Yahoo Sports.

After joining Yahoo, Charania began to break news of deals and high-profile signings in the summer of 2016, including Dwight Howard’s move to the Atlanta Hawks, DeMar DeRozan’s re-signing with the Toronto Raptors, Luol Deng’s signing with the Los Angeles Lakers, and Jamal Crawford’s signing with the Los Angeles Clippers.

In 2017, Charania broke signings by Stephen Curry, Blake Griffin, Jeff Teague, and Paul Millsap. On August 14, 2018, Shams announced via his Twitter account he would be leaving Yahoo Sports for The Athletic and Stadium
