By now, some of you have heard that the magazine I have had the privilege of writing for the last 18 months, Inside Wisconsin Sports, will no longer be printed.
That any new magazine was able to last in this economic climate for more than six years is nothing short of miraculous, until you spend some time with the incredibly talented and passionate publishing professionals I had the joy of working for. The newspaper and magazine industry is suffering in no small measure because of today’s instant gratification society where the printed page is becoming a dinosaur. For a monthly like IWS, that’s a shame because we were never a news publication – we just tried to tell the best stories we could about the things we, as
sports fans, care about. Wisconsin
Every Friday, here at DougRussellSports.blogspot.com, I have what I call a “Flashback Friday” when I dip into the archives and bring you something you might not have seen before. I’m thrilled to be able to bring you some of the stories I was allowed to tell by Mike Beacom over at IWS.
