ESPN VP & Publishing Dir STEVEN BINDER "has mysteriously left after six years in the position." The change comes as ESPN The Magazine "is trying to figure out its future in a 24-hour news cycle." The magazine’s ad pages "declined 11 percent to 520 in the first half of the year versus the year-ago period." The timing of the change "is curious -- there was a big corporate restructuring a year ago" when JOHN KOSNER took on the role of Exec VP/Digital & Print Media (ADWEEK.com, 8/30).
