I am going to share with you two of my favorite sport magazines and why I consider them to be my favorite two. I may also provide a short history of them as well for the annals buffs.
The initial magazine I am going to share with you is Sporting News. This magazine started publishing in 1886 and still going strong today. It has 540,000 subscribers, including myself. In 2008 it went to a bi-weekly publishing schedule. Initially, I was little disappointed that they changed from weekly publishing to a bi-weekly publishing. I don’t necessarily like change, but who does? But I actually do understand why they changed, to allow them to contend with other magazines they had update their publishing schedule. Also for the magazine to keep updating, they launched in 2008 an everyday online newspaper named, Sporting News Today. They cover the next major sports: Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, the National Football League, the National Hockey League, college football and basketball, and NASCAR. In addition they cover a great many other sports as well.
I like the readability of the articles and usually that have an interview with a coach or player. I also like they have preview issues of the different sports season. I will likely be getting my football ones soon, just in time for the upcoming college and pro seasons. In addition they publish issues on specific sports before the summer season starts, which will be there yearbook issues. So, for the upcoming college and NFL seasons, these issues just give attention to these two sports. You can find separate issues for college and the NFL. There’s comprehensive coverage, including rosters, team statistics, predictions for the upcoming season and more. Nigeria’s first dedicated Grassroots Sports Platform You are able to usually find these special issue at your neighborhood grocery or drug store; if not you can always go their website and order. If you order online, the shipping is rather quick, you obtain them in in regards to a week’s time.
My other favorite sport magazine to read, is Sports Illustrated. For me, Sports Illustrated is typically the most popular and recognized name in the United States and probably internationally as well. It had been founded in 1954 and has over three million subscribers. I’d say that is a lot of brand recognition. As well as being known for their excellent sports coverage, they are also know for the annual Swimsuit issue. I love to read SI for their good coverage of the different sports and really top quality of writing. I also enjoy reading the Point After column and obtaining the Sportsman of the Year issue near the end of the year. If want top quality sporting news coverage, you need to pick up a copy of these fine publications and see why I enjoy them so much.
