Michael Rosenberg Joins Sports Illustrated Full-Time

Michael Rosenberg has contributed to Sports Illustrated since 2009, but now he is coming aboard full-time. Rosenberg, who was also a columnist with The Detroit Free Press since 2004, has been named a Senior Writer at SI.

“Michael has a style in the best of Sports Illustrated’s literary traditions,” said Time Inc. Sports Group’s Editor, Terry McDonell. “He is going to be a smart and explosive voice for SI.”

Rosenberg was just as excited. “I always felt like I had one of the best jobs in journalism at the Free Press, but I am thrilled to join Sports Illustrated,” he said. “SI is the best brand in sports journalism, and I am in awe of its past and excited about its future.”
