Blades on Ice Figure Skating Magazine Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Posted on June 28, 1999

This summer Blades on Ice magazine celebrates its 10th Anniversary. Known for its in-depth profiles, breaking news, features, world-wide competition coverage and full page color photos, the magazine also has an award-winning website, Blades on Ice Online, which was launched in the fall of 1996. The website has hit a record 100,000 page visitors per month during the first quarter of 1999.

"We are very excited about the success of Blades on Ice magazine both on the newsstands and on the Internet," said Executive Editor, Gerri Walbert. "For an independent publication to have developed instant name recognition in the industry as skating's foremost publication is very gratifying."

To honor the special anniversary, Blades on Ice will issue dual commemorative issues this summer. Skaters of the Decade takes a look back at the most memorable skaters of the 1990's in its July newsstand release, followed by a special expanded issue, Skaters of the Century, dedicated to those who impacted the history of the sport.
