 Rick Reilly Biography

An 11-time National Sportswriter of the Year, Rick Reilly is one of the best known and most respected sports journalists of the last three decades. For 23 years, his unique, breezy, and hilarious "Life of Reilly" column was the backbone of Sports Illustrated, and his current appearances on ESPN and in ESPN the Magazine have introduced his observations on the intersection of sports and life to a new generation of fans

The New York Daily News named Reilly "one of the funniest humans on the planet." Publishers Weekly called him, "an indescribable amalgam of Dave Barry, Jim Murray, and Lewis Grizzard, with the timing of Jay Leno and the wit of Johnny Carson."

His book, Who's Your Caddy? in which he caddies for everyone from Jack Nicklaus to Donald Trump to a $50,000-a-hole gambler, reached The New York Times bestseller list. His previous book, The Life of Reilly: The Best of Sports Illustrated's Rick Reilly also was a New York Times bestseller.

Before his retirement from sports writing in 2014, Rick Reilly had written about everything from figure skating to NASCAR racing, and from pitching to putting. Reillys first novel, Missing Links, a comic golf romance, was hailed by The New York Times as "three laughs per page." He also wrote Slo-Mo: My Untrue Story, an NBA farce, a romp that could have been written only by someone who has seen the game from the inside," heralded The Denver Post.

Discussing everything from his start in journalism to the challenge of writing and reporting in today's 24/7 news cycle, celebrity speaker Rick Reilly charms and entertains his audiences, no matter where they are from or what they do. Witty and intelligent, his insights have left an indelible mark on journalism, and will remain with your group long after the presentation is over.
