Heard this week from the managing editor, a former colleague of mine, that the magazine has been killed by the owner of Century Publishing, along with companion titles Auto Racing Digest and Wrestling Digest. Three editors were laid off by the company. Century will continue to produce Baseball, Football, Basketball, Hockey and Bowling Digests. Pure business move in an increasingly tough magazine climate, especially for a bi-monthly that had a hard time being timely and relevant. I think the circ was about 30,000, which is surprising given the numbers I've heard for Soccer America, but a lot of that came from the very low subscription price. Still, I'm sad to see one of the few soccer-only mags in the U.S. go after 25 years in business.
