NFL To Announce Plans For Launch Of Official Monthly Magazine
The NFL today will formally announce that it is launching an official monthly magazine called NFL Magazine in December that promises insider perspective. The first issue will hit newsstands Dec. 13, priced at $5; annual subscribers will pay $19.90 for 12 issues. NFL Publishing's Jim Buckley will be the magazine's editor. CBS studio analyst Boomer Esiason and NFL reporter Andrea Kremer have been hired as regular contributors. Buckley is quoted in the release as saying, "We know that 140 characters is not enough to tell the stories that NFL fans need to read about their heroes. The League's publication will be able to go places other magazines can't go, all with a true 'insider's' perspective."
The first issue will feature stories on 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, Panthers QB Cam Newton and Colts QB Peyton Manning. Other features include a story on the 40th anniversary of the NFL's longest game and a behind-the-scenes look at NFL Network's pregame show, "NFL GameDay Morning."
