NewsGuild of New York Statement on Sale of Sports Illustrated
Meredith Corporation yesterday announced the sale of Sports Illustrated—a longstanding NewsGuild of New York-represented publication—to Authentic Brands Group, a global brand development, marketing and entertainment company. The storied magazine has been a trailblazer in sports journalism, as have the editorial employees who have created and bolstered the SI brand. The Guild was pleased to hear from Meredith stakeholders and ABG that they intend to keep the editorial integrity and quality of Sports Illustrated at the forefront of SI’s operations. We look forward to learning more and fostering a productive bargaining relationship with both Meredith and ABG.
