Look for my regularly scheduled posts on Windy City Gridiron every Monday through Friday.

In 2013 I was heard every morning around 7:30am following Bears games during Bears season on 95.7 The Fan, South Bend Indiana's official home of the Chicago Bears.

Every once in a while you can find my writing elsewhere around the web, plus you can also catch me dropping knowledge on the occasional radio spot, podcast or internet show.

Follow me on Twitter @wiltfongjr and never miss a thing.
