The New York Times said Monday that its longtime sportswriter and Pulitzer Prize winner Dave Anderson is retiring as a columnist — but will not stop writing for the paper.
“In a kind of emeritus role, he will write at least 18 columns a year, most appearing on Sundays,” the Times wrote in a note to readers in the Monday sports section.
Anderson joined the Times in 1966 after working at The New York Journal-American and The Brooklyn Eagle. He became the Sports of the Times columnist in 1971, and won the Pulitzer for commentary in 1981.
He was inducted into the National Sports Writers and Sportscasters Hall of Fame in 1990.
