Florio is also a contributor to NBC's Sunday night NFL studio show Football Night in America and appears in the Sunday Night Football postgame show to break down the NFL’s top stories of the day with Bob Costas. Additionally, he appears with Peter King of Sports Illustrated during halftime of NBC's coverage of Notre Dame football to discuss timely NFL topics.
Florio began his sportswriting for a now-defunct site called NFLtalk.com in June 2000. The site was then bought out by ESPN.com, where Florio continued to write a rumor and news report. He worked for ESPN.com for 6 months.
On November 1, 2001, Florio created the website and blog Profootballtalk.com, which focuses on the National Football League. Florio, 36 at the time, began Profootballtalk.com as a sideline to practicing labor law in Clarksburg, WV.
On June 14, 2009, it was announced that Profootballtalk.com would become an affiliate of NBC Sports, which would hold exclusive rights to PFT content although Florio would retain ownership in a revenue-sharing deal.
After becoming a partner with NBC, Florio began contributing to NBC Sports' television coverage, including Football Night in America.
