Bucknuts The Magazine is a new publication dedicated to covering Ohio State University athletics. The magazine will consist of exclusive features, in-depth articles and will be printed in a glossy format similar to other high quality magazines like Sports Illustrated.
Founded in 1999, Bucknuts.com began as a fan-based football website and has grown into a media network which now includes the website (which has since added a staff of writers including Jerry Rudzinski, Duane Long of Ohio's Future Stars Magazine, David Biddle, A.T. Buckeye, Ramzy Nasrallah, and Banished Buck) as well as The Bucknuts Radio Hour, which airs on eight Ohio radio stations.
"This magazine allows us to leverage our existing assets to a new medium. The winner will be Buckeye fans who just can't get enough information on the greatest athletic program in the country," said Bucknuts founder Mr. Bucknuts.
The Bucknuts Radio Hour and Bucknuts.com are renowned for delivering timely information and insight not found anywhere else. Bucknuts The Magazine will expand this great coverage without duplicating the content of its network partners.
"Having a magazine will allow us to examine issues at a higher level than what a 1-hour radio show or the internet allows, said Kirk Larrabee, editor of Bucknuts.com. "The magazine will dig deeply into the fabric of Ohio State University and its athletic programs by utilizing a feature driven format that only a magazine can provide."
Jim Heckman, CEO of TheInsiders and Citadel Publishing, agrees Bucknuts the Magazine represents the future of sports publishing.
"The internet has completely changed the team publishing business forever. It's obvious to me the weekly tabloid is entirely obsolete and at best, redundant. Why would anyone want to pay for a weekly publication? By the time it shows up, the news inside is either old and in some cases, has changed. The internet, on the other hand, offers timely information by the hour. Nobody wants to read a 2,000 word article on their computer. Instead, fans need a magazine with beautiful photography, in-depth feature articles and most of all, a quality keepsake they can save for years as the only viable compliment to online information."
Our new product answers this need with a monthly, ALL GLOSS, color format and our goal is to create a magazine of such quality, that each magazine will last a lifetime as a collectors piece. We have now created the ultimate package for the true Buckeye fan: the best time-sensitive news on the web, complimented by a world-class feature-driven gloss magazine!"
Bucknuts the Magazine will debut in August 2002 and will be published on a monthly basis ten times a year. Yearly subscriptions will sell for $44.95 and will begin with a special reduced rate of $39.95 for orders placed online.
