NYSSWA online only
The New York State Sportswriters Association will cease publication of the weekly eight-page newsletter after the last two issues in our 45th year in the business.
Paid membership in the organization has dwindled to barely a quarter of what it was at its peak, making it impractical to continue printing.
The NYSSWA will continue to operate its website (and related offshoots like RoadToGlensFalls.com) without skipping a beat.
Though the website is steadily growing both in traffic and revenue, the NYSSWA has operated in the red for the better part of a decade. A lot of the $40 annual membership was consumed by printing and postage costs, leaving less money in the till to pay small stipends to some of our various sport editors who compile the rankings.
