About Sid Hartman

Sidney Hartman (March 15, 1920 – October 18, 2020) was an American sports journalist for the Minneapolis Star Tribune and the WCCO 830 AM radio station. For 20 years, he was also a panelist on the weekly television program Sports Show with Mike Max, which aired Sunday nights at 9:30 p.m. on WUCW 23 in the Twin Cities metro area. He continued writing for the Star Tribune until his death at the age of 100.


On October 18, 2020, Hartman died at the age of 100. His final column, a discussion with Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen, was published by the Star Tribune that same day. Thielen, Vikings Hall of Famer Randy Moss and Vikings owners Mark and Zygi Wilf were among those who paid tribute, along with numerous Minnesota Twins players and executives, Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx owner Glen Taylor, Timberwolves coach Ryan Saunders, the spokespersons for the Minnesota Golden Gophers men's basketball and football teams and Minnesota governor Tim Walz.
