Sloan signs off from Washington Post column after 30 years

Legendary business columnist Allan Sloan is stepping away from his Washington Post column after 30 years.

Sloan writes, “Now, I’ll do what I should do, and stop while I’m ahead. Or maybe only a little behind.

“I’d like to thank The Post for buying my column when I self-syndicated it — revenue from The Post and various other outlets is how my wife and I paid for our kids’ college educations without them or us having to take on debt. And I’m glad to have kept up my relationship with The Post for so long.

“I’d like to thank those of you who’ve read my Post columns over the years. I’d especially like to thank those of you who’ve told me that my columns helped you understand the financial world. That’s what I try to do — and it’s why I’m pleased and flattered when people tell me that I’ve been successful.”
