Tom Curtis has sold his glossy Dolphin Digest after running it for nearly 40 years.
He will no longer be involved with the magazine, Gossip Extra has learned.
Curtis says his relationship with the Fins' front office has "somewhat" deteriorated.
He added that the team decided to stop offering a free subscription to season ticket holders as a cost-cutting measure, which cut circulation by half to about 15,000.
“It hurts,” Curtis said about his decision. “But it’s a business decision I had to make.”
Team officials have yet to discuss their decision to stop offering the magazine, something they’ve done for the past five years.
Dolphin Digest, which comes out twice a month during the NFL season and four times during the rest of the year, will continue in its present form under the ownership of American Sports Media, which also publishes magazines on the Buffalo Bills, New York Jets and New York Giants.
Popular editor Andy Cohen will continue contributing to Dolphin Digest, Curtis said.
“I feel bad because I think that season-ticket holders enjoyed receiving their magazine,” Curtis said. “The Dolphins did what they feel is best for them. I hold no grudge.”
Curtis declined to reveal the price but said it didn’t make him a millionaire.
