I'll always be grateful to Mark Mulvoy for hiring a green 31-year-old kid in 1989, just as I'm grateful to my current boss, Chris Stone, for the opportunities and support he's given me in recent years.

Peter King has been synonymous with Sports Illustrated's National Football League coverage for the past few decades, to the point that the company gave him his own National Football League vertical, MMQB, named after his weekly column.

King is best known for his "Monday Morning Quarterback" property, which began as a column in 1997 and morphed into an entire website, The MMQB, in 2013.

"I'm thrilled to be joining NBC Sports full-time after working with the football crew there since 2006", King said in a release from NBC Sports on Thursday. Quite frankly, it was very tough for me to leave.

King had been with Sports Illustrated for 29 years.

During his 29-year SI career, King became the country's leading National Football League writer. 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.

King, who already was an NBC TV contributor, will bring his popular Monday Morning QB column to NBCSports.com and appear on all of NBC Sports' platforms, while continuing on NBC's Sunday pregame show, "Football Night in America".

"For three decades, I've had the job of a lifetime in the sports media business, and I will be forever grateful to SI", King said in his goodbye announcement. He will also appear on Pro Football Talk Live once a week, filling in for co-host Chris Simms alongside PFT's Mike Florio.

"As one of the best National Football League 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. Shortly after the news of King's impending departure was announced by SI, NBC put out a statement listing King's responsibilities with the network.
