NY Times Acquires ‘Tuesday Morning Quarterback’

Gregg Easterbrook's column has a new home.

The New York Times is bringing the much-beloved “Tuesday Morning Quarterback” column by Gregg Easterbrook to its data blog, The Upshot.

Easterbrook’s TMQ column previously appeared on ESPN and Slate.

In an announcement, Times managing editor David Leonhardt wrote, “As his longtime readers know, he delivers his analysis in a rollicking style that makes people smile as he’s making them think. Tuesday Morning Quarterback, Chuck Todd, the host of ‘Meet the Press’ has said, is ‘the best and most compelling sports column anywhere.’ I’m one of the longtime readers, and I’ve spent many a Tuesday hitting refresh on his columnist web page in the hope that T.M.Q. — as it’s known — would be posted in time for me to read over lunch.”
