Jim Heckman, CEO of Publishing agrees the NEW Sports Washington represents the future of college team 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 monthly magazine with beautiful photography, in-depth feature articles and most of all, a quality keepsake they can save for years as the only viable complement 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 collector's piece. We have now created the ultimate package for the true Husky fan: the best time-sensitive news on the web, complemented by a world-class feature-driven gloss magazine!"
