Philadelphia Magazine announced today that they are shutting down their blog 'Birds 24/7, which provided regular day-to-day coverage of the Philadelphia Eagles. The announcement was made via the 'Birds 24/7' blog in a short statement.
Philadelphia magazine is ceasing publication of new material on Birds 24/7, effective today. The archives will remain online.
We would like to thank the current editors, Josh Paunil and Brandon Gowton, for their hard work and dedication; we wish them well in their next endeavors. We’d also like to recognize the founding editors, Tim McManus and Sheil Kapadia, and the commenters, who made the channel a real community over the past four and a half years.
As mentioned, 'Birds 24/7' was founded in 2012 by Tim McManus and Sheil Kapadia. Josh Paunil took over for Kapadia when Kapadia left to cover the Seattle Seahawks for ESPN. Brandon Gowton filled in for McManus when he too left for ESPN, covering the Eagles.
