Here’s another sad sign of our times.
The venerable bi-weekly sports magazine –Sports Illustrated, first
published in 1954 will be shifting to a monthly publishing schedule with that first
issue dated February 2020. It will arrive in late January and now there will be just
16 issues a year including –thankfully–the famed Sports Illustrated Swim Suit
issue that was first published in 1964 – I was a junior in High School.
As SI admits, “A 21st –century print magazine is no longer a vessel for news and timely analysis”
Sports Illustrated’s first issue was published on August 16, 1954 has
over 3 million subscribers and is read by an estimated 23 million people including over 18 million men.
The Magazine says it is “Evolving and growing”. I guess we will, too.
