A longtime NFL reporter has announced his retirement ahead of the 2022 season. 

Bob Glauber, a longtime reporter and columnist for Newsday, announced on Sunday his retirement from journalism.

"45 years covering sports. 37 years covering the @NFL . 30 years as @newsday NFL Columnist. Thank you for following along. It was truly an honor," he announced.

Glauber's had a pretty tremendous career.

From his final column:

As I sat at Los Angeles International Airport the day after the Rams’ 23-20 win over the Bengals in Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium in February and reflected on a career that offered so much, it hit me:

The coach of the Giants in the first NFL game I ever covered was John McVay. The coach of the last game I ever covered was his grandson, Sean McVay, winning the Super Bowl.

The tears came. The full-circle moment for this football writer was complete.

Thank you all so much for following along. It has been an honor.

Enjoy retirement, Bob.
