Legendary NFL Columnist Peter King Announces Retirement

Peter King has been one of the best for a very long time

Legendary pro football columnist Peter King has announced his retirement, marking the end of a distinguished 44-year career in sportswriting.

Why it Matters

Over the decades, King has become a staple in sports journalism, covering every Super Bowl for the last 40 years and delivering his celebrated “Monday Morning Quarterback” column for 27 years. His decision to retire stems from a mix of personal and professional reasons, including a desire for new experiences, the need to spend more time with family, and a waning interest in the relentless news cycle.

I’m retiring*,” King wrote. “I use an asterisk because I truly don’t know what the future holds for me. I probably will work at something, but as I write this I have no idea what it will be. Maybe it will be something in the media world, but just not Football Morning in America (nee Monday Morning Quarterback).
