Kate Fagan Signs New Contract At ESPN

espnW has re-signed versatile writer and commentator Kate Fagan to a new multiyear agreement, which will keep yet another of the brand’s core voices in its ranks. Fagan will continue in her role as a featured reporter and columnist for espnW on multiple ESPN platforms including espnW.com, ESPN TV – including Around the Horn, First Take, His & Hers and others — and she adds two new national ESPN Radio shows to her resume.

Fagan will host the new ESPN Radio show, Will & Kate, with ESPN contributor Will Cain, which will launch Sunday, February 14. The program, airing Sundays from 7 – 10 a.m. ET, will take an intellectual look at topical societal issues in sports by hosts who often find their opinions to be at opposite sides of the spectrum.

She is also the co-host of espnW’s The Trifecta with Spain, Jane and Kate on ESPN Radio, which debuted January 9 (airing noon – 3 p.m.), alongside fellow espnW writers Jane McManus and Sarah Spain. The show capitalizes on the trio’s chemistry as they discuss the key stories in sports and across society with a distinct perspective that only espnW can provide.

Fagan is the third espnW contributor to re-sign, with the business retaining primary voice Julie Foudy and espnW original Jane McManus in 2015. Fagan joined ESPN in 2012 and has been a columnist and feature writer for espnW, and her stories have also appeared on ESPN.com andESPN The Magazine. She is a regular panelist on ESPN’s Around the Horn, contributes to The Sports Reporters, First Take and other shows.
