ESPN The Magazine
|Editor In Chief||Chad Millman|
|First issue||March 11, 1998|
|Company||ESPN Inc. (The Walt Disney Company/Hearst Corporation)|
The main sports covered include Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, National Football League, National Hockey League, college basketball, and college football. The magazine typically takes a more light-hearted and humorous approach to sporting news compared to competitors such as Sports Illustrated and previously the Sporting News. It often covers players whose careers have suffered as a result of incidents off the field.
Here are some of the regular departments, in their magazine order:
- Two Way: Stuart Scott answers questions from readers, giving his own opinions.
- The Biz: Peter King writes about the business side of sports and its effect on the sporting world.
- The Post: Looking back at the previous edition of the magazine with some of the readers' comments and updates on past stories.
- Zoom: One large "image of the week," occupying two pages.
- The Jump: A mix of different regular features, offering an alternative and usually humorous take on the current sporting scene.
- Outtakes: A transcript of an interview from The Dan Patrick Show with a sport star mostly talking about non sports issues. Interviews now done by Kenny Mayne.
- The Life of Reilly: Former Sports Illustrated columnist Rick Reilly gives his opinions on the sports world, and reports upon various "special interest" stories in sports.
- NEXT Athlete: Yearly award given out to young rising star athletes.
