7. At one time it was the premier sports publication, along with

the Sporting News. I remember waiting for my next issue of Sports Illustrated to come in the mail (I subscribed as a teen). It had the best writing, legendary sportswriters and beautiful action pictures. I think the added the swimsuit edition when I was in college.

SI has fallen victim to electronic news, what I used to wait a few days for comes in seconds now for free in newsfeeds. All print media is facing that fate, only a handful will survive. I think news syndicators like Ruethers and the Associated Press will survive, they have always worked on a freelance model where they buy local news from freelance reporters and photographers then syndicate it.
