ESPN senior writer and radio/TV commentator Mina Kimes will host the "ESPN Daily," a weekday podcast from ESPN's team of journalists and storytellers set to debut October 21. Kimes' expanded role is part of a new multi-year agreement. Each weekday morning, "ESPN Daily" will dive into a specific story in sports, using ESPN's journalistic resources and roster of reporters, producers and commentators.

"ESPN Daily's narrative-driven approach will go beyond headlines and scores, allowing fans to gain a deeper understanding of the biggest sports story of the moment," said ESPN Executive VP/Content Connor Schell. "Mina Kimes' ability to connect with audiences along with her insight, curiosity and wit make her the perfect voice to take listeners on this journey each and every day."

Kimes added, "After working across various platforms at ESPN over the last few years, I'm thrilled to be part of a show that brings together talent from around the network to make something smart and fun. My colleagues put out so many interesting stories, and we're looking forward to surprising and delighting listeners with them every day."

Since joining ESPN as a senior writer in 2014, Kimes' profile has grown steadily across the company's multimedia platforms. In addition to writing, she regularly appears on multiple TV programs, including the TV simulcast of radio's "Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz," "Highly Questionable," "Around the Horn," "SportsCenter" and "Outside the Lines." Kimes has also co-hosted a weekly ESPN Radio show and an NFL podcast, "The Mina Kimes Show featuring Lenny." In addition, in August Kimes served as a color analyst on the Los Angeles Rams' television broadcasts of preseason games.

Prior to ESPN, Kimes was an investigative reporter for Bloomberg News and a business writer for Fortune magazine, where she penned pieces on topics from arms exports to tainted drugs. A two-time finalist for the Dan Jenkins Medal for Excellence in Sportswriting, Kimes also earned numerous awards for business and investigative journalism.
