ESPN senior writer and TV/radio commentator Mina Kimes will host the new weekday podcast ESPN Daily. Kimes’ expanded role is part of a new multiyear agreement. In addition, Kimes will contribute to the upcoming ESPN Cover Story initiative.
“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 Connor Schell, ESPN Executive Vice President, Content. “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.”
Since joining ESPN as a senior writer in 2014, Kimes’ profile has grown steadily across the company’s multimedia array of platforms. In addition to writing, she regularly appears on multiple television programs. Prior to ESPN, Kimes was an investigative reporter for Bloomberg News and a business writer for Fortune magazine.
