ESPN commentator Pablo Torre will become the new, full-time host of the ESPN Daily podcast in August - beginning the transition by working select shows in July - as part of a new, multi-year contract extension with the network.

Torre will continue to evolve the successful podcast, which launched in October 2019. Mina Kimes, the original host, will be joining the network's NFL Live team as an analyst and will host The Mina Kimes Show featuring Lenny football podcast. Kimes will continue to be a key contributor to ESPN Daily.

Torre will also continue to have a presence on ESPN's weekday afternoon studio shows Highly Questionable and Around the Horn and make appearances on the network's other studio shows.

"I am wildly excited to accept the reins of ESPN Daily from one of my closest friends, Mina Kimes," said Torre. "I love the show. I love its creative and journalistic potential. And I love the fact that Mina will no longer be able to make fun of me for being the last person on this planet to not have a podcast."

Norby Williamson, ESPN executive vice president & executive editor, production, said, "Pablo, with his multi-platform and journalistic expertise, will continue bringing the top sports stories to life in new and insightful ways for fans as the host of ESPN Daily. Sports fans will appreciate Pablo joining the ESPN Podcast space as a leading, daily voice."

Torre joined ESPN from Sports Illustrated in 2012 as a senior writer for ESPN.com and ESPN The Magazine. His writing has been honored by the Society of Professional Journalists, the U.S. Basketball Writers Association, the Society of American Business Editors and Writers, the Boxing Writers Association of America, the Association of Health Care Journalists, GLAAD, Mental Health America, and The Best American Sports Writing.
