PETER KING SIGNS EXCLUSIVE AGREEMENT WITH NBC SPORTS GROUP THAT INCLUDES MONDAY MORNING NFL COLUMN

King to Write Critically-Acclaimed Monday Morning NFL Column Exclusively for NBCSports.com Every Week

Renowned NFL Insider Will Also Make Regular Appearances on PFT Live with Mike Florio and Will Continue to Contribute to Football Night in America

STAMFORD, Conn. - May 3, 2018 - NFL Insider Peter King has signed an exclusive agreement with NBC Sports Group that begins this July in which he will write a weekly Monday morning NFL column for NBCSports.com; make regular appearances on NBCSN's and NBC Sports Radio's PFT Live with Mike Florio; and continue to contribute to Football Night in America, the most-watched studio show in sports. The announcement was made Rick Cordella, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Digital Media, NBC Sports Group.

King's Monday morning online column has been a must-read for NFL fans, coaches, players, and executives for decades. Peppered with news, opinion, analysis, interviews, and peeks inside King's own personal life, the column is regarded as the NFL's paper of record each week. It will now be published exclusively on NBCSports.com.

"I'm thrilled to be joining NBC Sports full-time after working with the football crew there since 2006. I've loved my time there, both in the studio and doing longer features for Football Night in America, and the chance to bring my column there felt like a perfect match to me," said King. "I loved my time at Sports Illustrated. Quite frankly, it was very tough for me to leave. But the only place that felt like a great fit after my years at SI was NBC, which has always made me feel like a member of the family."

Beginning in July, King will resume his popular NFL training camp tour, filing his column from the road each Monday and providing occasional video or written reports from team to team throughout the preseason. He will also report for NBC Sports Digital on numerous events throughout the year, including regular season games, a conference championship game, the Super Bowl, the NFL Scouting Combine, the start of free agency, and the NFL Draft.

"Peter has been one of the most prolific and respected NFL writers for decades, and we're thrilled to host his work exclusively on NBC Sports Digital platforms," said Cordella. "With the addition of Peter and his Monday morning column, we now have the most complete NFL digital portfolio in sports as we stream primetime television's number one show, Sunday Night Football; provide continuous football news and analysis on Mike Florio's Pro Football Talk; and produce unparalleled fantasy football information on Rotoworld.com."

As part of the agreement, King will make a weekly appearance on PFT Live with Mike Florio, a syndicated NBC Sports Radio program that is simulcast on NBCSN on weekday mornings. As in recent years, King will contribute to Football Night in America with taped feature stories that will also be made available on NBCSports.com. King has contributed to Football Night in America in some capacity since its inaugural season in 2006.

"As one of the best NFL reporters in history, Peter's information, storytelling, and analysis make us better across the board," said Sam Flood, Executive Producer and President, Production, NBC Sports & NBCSN. "With Peter expanding his NBC Sports presence from Football Night to PFT Live and digital, football fans are the big winners."

In addition to his NFL responsibilities, King will report on some of NBC Sports' most high-profile events, including the Stanley Cup Final, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, and more.
