ESPN The Magazine is a bi-weekly (once every two weeks) sports magazine published by the ESPN sports network in Bristol, Connecticut in the United States. The first issue was published on March 11, 1998.

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 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 Keating 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
