COVID has impacted the media in a myriad ways, and magazines, especially niche magazines, are collapsing under its weight.
Mid-Day reports the closure of the pioneering Hindi cricket magazine Cricket Samrat after 42 years of publication.
Sportstar, the weekly from The Hindu group, has already gone online.
In the Indian Express, the paper’s sports writer Daksh Panwar calls Cricket Samrat a combination of Cricinfo, Sports Illustrated and Star Sports rolled into one.
