Kenneth H. "Ken" Rosenthal (born September 19, 1962) is an American sportswriter and reporter. He joined the site The Athletic in August 2017 as their baseball writer.

Rosenthal served as lead field reporter for Major League Baseball on Fox from 2005 to July 2017, and as an insider on MLB Network since 2009. Following Fox Sport's decision to feature only videos on their sports sites, Rosenthal remained with them to supply commentary for their videos, but he also joined the new sports site The Athletic to continue his favourite vocation of writing on baseball. [1] After serving as an intern covering sports for Newsday on Long Island, he began his career at The York Daily Record, then The Courier-Post in Cherry Hill, New Jersey for two years[2] before landing a full-time job with The Baltimore Sun, where he was named Maryland Sportswriter of the Year five times by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.[3] Rosenthal simultaneously contributed to Sports Illustrated from 1990 to 2000, providing weekly notes during baseball season.[3] Rosenthal attended Oyster Bay High School in Oyster Bay, New York.
