Extreme ESPN

ESPN will launch a test version of EXPN Magazine, devoted to the most extreme sports fans, at the X Games in Philadelphia. The pub will be available at the X Games (August 17-
22), and at ESPN Zones, Barnes & Noble and B. Dalton book stores nationwide. No date set for an official launch - ESPN will evaluate the test issue results first. The test
prototype includes an interview with BMX biker Dave Mirra, coverage of the top 10 surfers and an in-depth look at the athletes and action behind this year's X Games. Steve Malley
is editor for the test issue, working under John Papanek, editor-in-chief of ESPN The Magazine.
