A plan to increase publishers’ postage rates drastically over the next five years would cause ESPN The Magazine to cease publication, an ESPN official indicated Friday.

“The content will be delivered via the many other means we now use to deliver our content,” Farley added, in emphasizing that ESPN would continue as a popular cable network and web site.
