Sports Illustrated is reducing the number of issues it publishes even further and will become a monthly magazine printed on heavier stock paper next year.
The magazine has been slowly dwindling in recent years, moving from a weekly in 2015 to twice per month in January 2018. It’s now moving to one issue per month, plus four special issues and the Swimsuit Issue.
“We’re refining the exact schedule, but it will be essentially a monthly with four season-preview issues and the SI Swimsuit for a total of 17 issues,” said co-editor Steve Cannella, who moved into the job last month as part of a shake-up that saw 40 staffers — including 13 from the editorial side — axed.
“The age of the weekly is over,” Cannella said of the change, first reported by Yahoo Finance Wednesday. “But we’re still committed to premium storytelling.”
