The Sporting News, an American-based sports magazine which was established in 1886 and became the dominant American publication covering baseball so much so that it acquired the nickname "The Bible of Baseball" and it eventually covered MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL, NASCAR, NCAA men’s basketball and football and occasionally other sports.
Today, Sporting News is owned by
Charlotte– based American City Business Journals, a subsidiary of Advance
Publications. However, after years of existence as a weekly publication, the
magazine switched to a biweekly publishing in 2008. Then, in 2011, it was published
in print only monthly. December 2012 rolls
around and the magazine announced it would go digital-only in 2013.
The proud tradition that began in
St. Louis and was nutured as a unique brand for 127 years, The Sporting News is
now going digital. This, of course, is consistent with the overwhelming trend.
Daily newspapers, magazines and printed material in general.
