The New York Times Sports Section Says Goodbye

From The Poynter Report with Tom Jones:

The New York Times sports section is no more. On Monday, it was published for the final time.

Earlier this year, the Times announced that it was closing its sports section and that it would turn over its coverage to The Athletic, the sports website the Times purchased at the beginning of 2022 for $550 million.

Despite pushback from the union and staffers, as well as criticism and pleas from sports fans and other journalists, the Times made good on its announcement that it would shut down the section.
