Sporting News Announces Move to All-Digital Publication Effective in 2013

@SportingNewsOne of the sports world’s longest-running publications is at the end of its run — sort of.

After 126 years of gracing newsstands on a regular basis, Sporting News has announced that it will no longer print issues, and it will instead become an all-digital publication beginning on Jan. 1, 2013.

“Having spoken with many of our longtime subscribers, we recognize this is not a popular decision among our most loyal fans,” the company said in a statement. “Unfortunately, neither our subscriber base nor the current advertising market for print would allow us to operate a profitable print business going forward.”

The Sporting News will continue to print six sport-specific season previews per year, covering baseball, football, basketball and fantasy football and baseball.
