Pablo Torre, who joined ESPN in 2012, is a multi-platform commentator, appearing on TV shows, writing and, since August 2020, hosting the ESPN Daily podcast each weekday.
Torre regularly appears on Around the Horn, Highly Questionable and ESPN Radio’s Dan LeBatard Show with Stugotz, as well as a guest on other programming across the network. Torre hosted a daily studio show, High Noon alongside Bomani Jones from 2018-20. Torre has also been a senior writer for ESPN.com. Torre previously worked at Sports Illustrated from 2007-12 where he was a staff writer.
Torre wrote and produced his first 30 for 30 short film, Friedman’s Shoes (2016), while contributing to other ESPN Films projects. In 2012, he appeared in Broke, a 30 for 30 feature documentary, which was based on his own 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 charges.
