Michael Silver joins The San Francisco Chronicle as NFL columnist

The San Francisco Chronicle is pleased to announce that Michael Silver will be Sporting Green’s newest column to focus on the San Francisco 49ers while bringing his perspective as a journalist who has covered the league for more than three decades.

A Bay Area native, Silver is best known for his work at Sports Illustrated and as a columnist at Yahoo! Sports before joining the NFL Network in 2013, where he received multiple Emmy nominations for his feature contributions.

“I’m thrilled to be collaborating with some of my favorite journalists and to be part of a publication I’ve devoured for decades – in the most amazing region on earth,” said Silver. “It’s going to be a thrill to write columns with living legend Scott Ostler and my incredibly talented friend Ann Killion, who I’ve dreamed of collaborating with since we first competed in the 49ers beat in the early ’90s. … As a native of San Francisco, you feel right at home here.

“I can’t wait to get to work. It won’t be subtle.”
