Sportsnet Magazine is a Canadian bi-weekly sports magazine published by Rogers Media in conjunction with its sports television channel Sportsnet.

History[edit]

On June 9, 2011, Rogers executive Ken Whyte announced plans for a new sports magazine as a brand extension of Rogers' Sportsnet television channel, modeled off a similar magazine produced by ESPN.[1] The first issue was released on September 29, 2011, with Sidney Crosby on the cover; the launch of Sportsnet Magazine came alongside a major re-branding of Rogers' sports broadcasting outlets.[2] The first woman to appear on the cover was the late skier Sarah Burke.
