Today we herald a new era for the Los Angeles Times sports department.
The sports print section will take on the look and feel of a daily sports magazine, with a different design showcasing our award-winning coverage and photography. Our new layout highlights our best and most ambitious sports journalism – unique work you won’t find anywhere else.
We’re making this change to align with the way readers follow news and sporting events on a daily basis, while also managing rising production costs. You’ll no longer see boxing scores, standings and traditional game stories, but these will be replaced by more innovative reports, in-depth profiles, unique examinations of how teams work, investigations, the voices of our distinctive columnists, elite photography and more.
We continue to invest heavily in sports coverage in Southern California and beyond. The journalists you know well chronicle your favorite teams and athletes while introducing you to newcomers who will soon make a lasting impression.
You can still find scores, breaking news, instant analysis, commentary and more as matches and tournaments take place latimes.com/sports and via our LA Times app. And please sign up for our sports reports newsletter at latimes.com/newsletters to get the latest developments in your e-mail inbox early every morning.
It’s my honor to continue to highlight the incredible talent of the LA Times sports staff and I look forward to helping readers showcase all we have to offer in our print edition and online. If you need help using your print subscription to access all of our online offerings, please visit Membership.latimes.com or call 213-283-2274.

Sports Editor of the LA Times
