Senior Writer, ESPN The Magazine
Pablo S. Torre is a senior writer at ESPN The Magazine and ESPN.com; a panelist on Around the Horn and The Sports Reporters; and a back-up host of Around the Horn, Olbermann and Highly Questionable.
He joined ESPN in 2012 from Sports Illustrated and joined Sports Illustrated in 2007 from Harvard College, where he wrote a thesis about child homicide in America and graduated Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude with highest honors.
Features he’s written have been honored by the Society of American Business Editors and Writers; the U.S. Basketball Writers Association; the Best American Sports Writing (Notable); the Society of Professional Journalists; GLAAD; the Boxing Writers Association of America; Mental Health America; and the Association of Health Care Journalists.
Broke, a 30 for 30 documentary, was based on his reporting on athletes and financial health. Those stories also led the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to sue the firm Triton Financial for defrauding investors in a multimillion-dollar scam. (A federal jury would find Triton’s CEO guilty on 39 criminal charges.)
He’s spoken at Harvard Law, Stanford’s Graduate School of Business, the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, Columbia Journalism School, Williams College and the Asia Society, among other physical locations.
