Pablo S. Torre (born September 27, 1985) is an American sportswriter and columnist for ESPN.com and ESPN The Magazine. Torre is a regular guest on various ESPN shows such as Around the Horn and The Sports Reporters. He also frequently serves as an alternate host for Around the Horn, Highly Questionable, and Pardon the Interruption. He has also appeared on Outside the Lines, The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz, and TrueHoop. Aside from ESPN-related productions, Torre is also a contributor to National Public Radio.
Torre, whose father Pablo is a urologist and mother a dermatologist, attended Regis High School in New York City. He later graduated from Harvard College magna cum laude with a degree in sociology in 2007, and was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa Society. There, he wrote a 114-page thesis entitled Sympathy for the Devil? Child Homicide, Victim Characteristics, and the Sentencing Preferences of the American Conscience. He contributed to the college newspaper, The Harvard Crimson, and eventually became its executive editor.
Upon graduating from Harvard, Torre joined Sports Illustrated as a staff writer, where his focuses included sports investigations, boxing, and basketball. His 2009 award-winning article, “How (and Why) Athletes Go Broke,” along with two follow-up reports, spurred an investigation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission of the investment firm Triton Financial for defrauding investors in a multi-million dollar scam. A federal jury would later find Triton’s CEO Kurt Barton guilty of criminal charges. Broke, an ESPN 30 for 30 documentary, prominently featured Torre, and was based on his research.
On October 10, 2012, Torre joined ESPN as a senior writer for both their website and magazine.
On March 12, 2014, Torre filled in as host on Around the Horn in the absence of Tony Reali. In August of that year, Torre covered for Reali as off when he took time off for the birth of his daughter.
In 2016, Torre produced his first 30 for 30 entitled Friedman's Shoes, which was directed by Danny Lee.
Torre is of Filipino descent. On November 5, 2016, Torre married Elizabeth Doherty.
