Sports Illustrated writer Peter King will be profiled tomorrow night on HBO’s Real Sports, on the heels of correctly predicting Pittsburgh and Green Bay in the Super Bowl.
A description of the segment from the HBO release:
“In the 21st century, innovations such as live blogging and Twitter make it increasingly difficult to excel as the NFL’s premier supplier of inside information, yet Peter King of Sports Illustrated continues to distinguish himself. The New England native graduated from Ohio University in 1979 and got his journalism start at the Cincinnati Enquirer covering college and professional sports, becoming a full-time NFL beat writer at Newsday before settling in at Sports Illustrated in 1989. Perhaps the most respected NFL writer today, King has authored five football-themed books and built an unparalleled camaraderie with the game’s biggest stars and power brokers. In this REAL SPORTS/Sports Illustrated collaboration, correspondent Mary Carillo goes behind the scenes with King, who also appears on NBC Sunday Night Football and Sirius NFL Radio, to see how he compiles his must-read Monday Morning Quarterback column.”
