Developing story. The Pro Football Talk site headed up by Mike Florio has been purchased by NBC. Yes, that NBC.
Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times says terms of the deal have not been announced.
No official word from either party. When they do, I’ll have it for you.
UPDATE, 8:15 p.m. – NBCSports.com has the official word saying PFT will become part of NBC’s site on July 1.
According to the story, an official announcement will be made on Monday. In addition, NBCSports.com NFL insiders Tom Curran (formerly of the Providence Journal) and Gregg Rosenthal will make occasional contributions to Pro Football Talk.
Also, expect to see Pro Football Talk on Football Night in America. One could say Mike Florio has hit the lottery.
