NYT‘s Play NOT Being Shuttered

play10.23.08.jpgGiven the terrible week it’s been in the media world (no links, too depressing), we weren’t surprised when we heard the rumors that Play, The New York TimesEllie-nominated sports magazine, was going to close up shop after its next issue. Say it ain’t so, NYT.

In an effort to find out the truth, we emailed the mag’s editor Mark Bryant, who admitted he’d heard the rumor as well (that had to be pretty surreal), but assured us there wasn’t any truth to it.

Thankfully, the rumors aren’t true. Play is scheduled for four more issues for next year, beginning with a March 29 issue.
