Joe Posnanski Named National Sportswriter Of The Year

Good to know that what those of us in Kansas already knew has finally caught national attention.


Former Kansas City Star sports columnist Joe Posnanski has been recognized as National Sportswriter of the Year by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association. Posnanski joins a long list of writers for Sports Illustrated to receive the award, including Peter King, Frank Deford, Rick Reilly (11 times) and Steve Rushin.


Posnanski currently is a senior writer for Sports Illustrated. When he first learned of the honor, Posnanski said: “I was competely surprised, and then completely humbled to be suddenly on the same list” as some of the other great SI writers.
