ESPN The Magazine ‘Body Issue’ Features Six Covers

ESPN The Magazine has unveiled its annual Body Issue, which features lots of mostly naked pro athletes with bodies that will make you hate yours. Aside from Prince Fielder. There’s a good chance his body won’t invoke your jealousy.

The following athletes are featured on six different covers: Michael Phelps, Venus Williams, Marshawn Lynch, Prince Fielder, Jamie Anderson and Serge Ibaka.

This year’s collection of exceptional athletes and stunning photography showcases an array of sports and body types,” said Chad Millman, ESPN’s editor-in-chief, in a statement. “It inhabits our mission to pay tribute to these athletes’ bodies and all they are capable of.”

Cover Battle: ESPN The Magazine or GQ

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This time around we have ESPN The Magazine taking on GQ. For its NBA Preview issue, ESPN featured LeBron James. As Knicks fans, anytime we see James we have to fight the urge to rant about him leaving us with the ultra-selfish Melo and Amar’e “No Knees” Stoudemire. You’ll just have to trust us that we’re not yelling at the top of our lungs right now.

ESPN The Magazine Brings Sponsored Content to Print

ESPN The Magazine is taking sponsored content to the next level: By bringing it into the folds of the print edition. Adweek reports that starting with its 15th Anniversary issue, the glossy will be publishing Coors branded pieces. The partnership will last until the end of this year.

Chad Millman, editor-in-chief of ESPN The Magazine, said the editorial featured in “Cold Hard Facts presented by Coors Light” will be completely controlled by the magazine. For the record, he feels great about the deal. “Sometimes as a magazine, you feel like you’re playing with one hand tied behind your back because we’re committed to legacy rules that, from a personal perspective, I just don’t think are relevant anymore,” Millman told Adweek.

Some do not agree with Millman. Some see the blurring of the lines between editorial and advertising as a negative, especially when it goes particularly awry. This was most recently demonstrated by The Atlantic. The magazine’s sponsored post about Scientology prompted so much criticism, The Atlantic’s team removed it. With things a little more permanent in print, it’ll be interesting to see ESPN The Magazine’s approach.
