SI Loses Pablo S. Torre to ESPN The Magazine

Pablo S. Torre is leaving Sports Illustrated for a spot with its rival, ESPN The Magazine. Torre had been with SI since 2007. At ESPN he will be a senior writer and contribute to the magazine as well as ESPN.com.

Torre has won multiple awards for his work, including accolades from the Boxing Writers Association of America and the annual Best American Sports Writing anthology.

“Pablo has a nose for big stories that matter and that resonate with readers,” said Chad Millman, editor-in-chief of ESPN The Magazine. “We’re excited for him to join the incredible roster of talent writing online and in the pages of the magazine.”

Torre starts at ESPN October 10.
