ST. LOUIS — Sporting News is making major changes that reflect shifts in the way sports news is consumed.

It plans to start a free digital sports newspaper in July called Sporting News Today. It will deliver scores and statistics to subscribers' inboxes every morning.

Sporting News officials say the print edition will be reintroduced as a biweekly publication with more color and better paper, and feature contributions from sports experts.

The publication has been around since 1886. Once known as the Bible of Baseball for its devotion to box scores and statistics, Sporting News is moving from St. Louis to Charlotte, N.C., home to its parent company, American City Business Journals.
