Published March 2, 1998
JEFFREY POLLACK, President & Publisher of THE SPORTS BUSINESS DAILY, has resigned from his position. Pollack: "As reported this weekend, Times Mirror has purchased InterZine Productions, owner of THE SPORTS BUSINESS DAILY. While I wish Times Mirror the best of luck and success in determining the future direction of THE DAILY, I have decided that personally it is time for me to move on to new challenges. Accordingly, I am resigning as President and Publisher, effective immediately." LOOKING BACK: Pollack created and founded THE DAILY in February 1994, and sold the publication to InterZine in September 1996. Pollack: "When I started THE DAILY in 1994 our goal was to create the sports industry's first daily trade publication and provide sports executives with a news service that is preeminent in its scope and perspective. I believe that goal has been accomplished and I hope that, in the process, we have made a positive contribution to the sports industry. Most importantly, over the last four years, I have had an opportunity to work with some wonderful people at THE SPORTS BUSINESS DAILY. For that, I will always be grateful" (THE DAILY).
