Radical Change for TV Guide

From the morning paper comes the startling news that after over a half century, TV Guide, as we have always known it, is no more. The magazine is changing into a People-style celebrity magazine which will be heavy on articles and short on TV listings. In future there will only be East Coast and West Coast editions rather than the 140 regional editions currently published.

In recent years the magazine had become less useful, with the elimination of individual daytime listings; these changes cement that trend. TV Guide may continue to exist as a magazine title, but sadly it's the end of the digest many of us have relied on for decades.
