ESPN the Magazine Is Ceasing Publishing in September.

Sports publication ESPN the Magazine will reportedly end its print operation in September, according to Sports Business Journal.

“Consumer habits are evolving rapidly, and this requires ESPN to evolve as well,” ESPN said in statement. “The only change here is that we are moving away from printing it on paper and sending it in the mail. … Our data shows the vast majority of readers already consume our print journalism on digital platforms, and this approach will maximize our reach and impact.”

ESPN added that it will possibly still print special editions of its magazine (e.g. The Body Issue) in the future. A tweet from Sports Business Journal says that there have been no layoffs and many of the publication’s employees “have already been integrate across other ESPN platforms.”
