ESPN commentator Pablo Torre will replace Mina Kimes as the full-time host of the "ESPN Daily Podcast," the sports network announced Tuesday.
Original "ESPN Daily Podcast" host Kimes will join ESPN's NFL Liveteam division as an analyst, and will also get her own show — "The Mina Kimes Show featuring Lenny" football analysis podcast. ESPN said Kimes will also continue to be a contributor to the "ESPN Daily" podcast as a guest.
In addition to now hosting "ESPN Daily" in audio form, Torre will continue to appear on ESPN's weekday afternoon studio shows, including "Around the Horn" and "Highly Questionable." ESPN said the contract is a "multi-year deal," but wouldn't specify the exact duration Torre is locked in to host the show for.
Steve Coogan’s Alan Partridge To Host Audible Podcast ‘From The Oasthouse’
Steve Coogan’s iconic comic creation Alan Partridge has landed his own Audible podcast, titled From The Oasthouse: The Alan Partridge Podcast. The 18-part series comes out of Coogan’s Baby Cow Productions and will feature the fictional TV and radio presenter offering “audio vignettes” on his life. The series will drop on Amazon’s audio app Audible on September 3, but the company has made the first episode available for free on its Alexa voice assistant until June 12. “All national treasures have a podcast. With this series, I want to give my fans an intimate view of who I really am,” Partridge said of his new venture.
"I am wildly excited to accept the reins of ESPN Daily from one of my closest friends, Mina Kimes," Torre said in a statement Tuesday. "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," he joked.
Torre, a Harvard University graduate, came to ESPN in 2012 after a stint at Sports Illustrated. Prior to his work as an on-air contributor, Torre was a senior writer for ESPN The Magazine and the ESPN website.
