Fagan previously spent seven years as a columnist and feature writer for espnW, ESPN.com and ESPN The Magazine. She was also a regular panelist on ESPN’s Around the Horn, Outside the Lines and First Take.
She also covered the Philadelphia 76ers for three seasons and played college basketball at the University of Colorado. She lives in Charleston, South Carolina with her wife, Kathryn Budig, and their two dogs.
Fagan’s TEDxBoston talk focused on what compels us to watch sports. She argues it’s not actually the reasoning that people want to watch the “best of the best” but theorizes that what actually burns at the center of sports is stakes and storylines.
