Changes At Sporting News Include New Multi-Page Photo Essay
By Albert Dickson, Sporting News

As sports photographers, we're all conditioned to bad news about the publishing industry. We've seen layoffs, buyouts, shrinking budgets and a feeling that the worst is yet to come.

In this environment, there is a media company that is taking a venerable brand and giving it new life with a new digital platform and an improved quality of its flagship magazine.

Sporting News has launched a new digital daily, Sporting News Today, that can be delivered in any subscriber's mailbox free of charge every day of the year. You can sign up for the daily, again for free, at It only takes a minute.

You'll get a newspaper-like experience, with about 30 daily pages per day from the nation's largest sports newsroom. In addition to the scores, you'll get features and first-person writing by some of the biggest names in sports, including Hank Steinbrenner, John Elway, Troy Aikman, John Riggins, Randy Cross, Greg Oden, Rick Barry, Reggie Miller and Tony Stewart.

In addition to that big news, Sporting News magazine will go to an every-other-week publishing schedule. It will feature much better paper stock, a larger format and a much greater commitment to better design and photo usage.

For Sports Shooter folk, one of the biggest opportunities is that every magazine will feature a 6 - 8 page photo essay on the world of sports. Can your freelance work be in this essay? Yes! It just has to be unique, outstanding and sports - oriented. Pro sports, prep, college, it's all in play. Send me your ideas at and we'll see what we can get into the magazine.
