The Sporting News (TSN) is an American-based sports newspaper, currently affiliated with the Fox network. It was established in 1886, and in its first decades came to become the dominant American publication covering baseball – so much so that it acquired the nickname "The Bible of Baseball". The Fox Broadcasting Company is a television network in the United States. ... See also: 1885 in sports, 1887 in sports and the list of years in sports.

Throughout much of the 20th century TSN was decidedly non-glamorous, consisting of black-and-white newsprint with staid graphics. However it was the only vehicle for serious sports fans to follow teams from around the nation. For example, it printed a box score and description for every major league baseball game played each week. Similarly, every issue had a report on each major league baseball team, usually written by a local newspaper's beat writer for that team.

However with the advent of national sports media in the 1980s such as USA Today and ESPN, and of comprehensive web sites run by the major sports leagues in the 1990s, TSN lost this unique role. Consequently, it evolved into a more of a conventional, glossy sports magazine in both appearance and contents. USA Today is a national American newspaper published by the Gannett Corporation. ... ESPN, an abbreviation of Entertainment and Sports Programming Network, is an American cable television network dedicated to broadcasting sports-related programming 24 hours a day. ...
