"ESPN The Magazine" is a bi-weekly sports magazine published by the ESPN sports network in Bristol, CT in the United States. The first issue was published on March 11, 1998.

The main sports covered include Major League Baseball, NBA, NFL, NHL, 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.

Departments

Here are some of the regular departments, in their magazine order:

*Open Look: Dan Le Batard gives his opinion on sport's current controversies.
*The Sports Guy: Bill Simmons, who writes for ESPN.com's Page2, tries to give an alternative point of view on a sporting issue.
*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: Three or four large pictures of the week's games, taken by photographers from around the country.
*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.
*0:01: The last page of the magazine, this is used for an irreverent look at a big sporting story via a single, altered photo. For example, in 2005 NFL veterans Jerome Bettis, Brett Favre and Jerry Rice were digitally edited to appear to be in the Rolling Stones. A compilation of these has been released as a book.
*NEXT Athlete: Yearly award given out to young rising star athletes
