Norwegian sports commentator, journalist, and TV show host for NRK (the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation).

In his youth, Bjørnsen was a promising speed skater. He was junior Norwegian champion in 1951. He worked for NRK from 1961 to 1991, and was its main speed skating commentator for most of those years together with fellow NRK veteran journalist Per Jorsett. He also hosted the popular game show "Kvitt eller dobbelt" ('Double or Nothing') for many years. In 1991, Bjørnsen left NRK and began working for cable channel TV3, where he hosted the game show Lykkehjulet (a Norwegian adaptation of Wheel of Fortune).

In his later years he spoke out as a supporter of the Progress Party, having lost his confidence in the Conservative Party.

In April 2008, Bjørnsen was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer, and he died from the illness seven months later, on 14 November 2008, aged 76.
