Here's what I've been up to: Introducing CHGO

Good morning, friends!

Now it can finally be told: I'm the new head of content at CHGO, the outlet for diehard Chicago sports fans that just launched about an hour ago.

What is CHGO?  We like to think of it as the ultimate destination for every fan in town. We'll be producing daily podcasts, live postgame shows and in-depth articles starting immediately with an unbelievable staff we've assembled over the past few weeks.

Here's a little sizzle reel that tells you a little more about what we're about.

Incredible, right?   It's a dream job with a dream set of co-workers and I can't thank you enough for helping me get here.

So how did all of this come about?

When I launched Midway Minute almost two years ago, I did it with the belief that if my perfect job didn't exist, I'd go ahead and create it myself.  

Getting the chance to lead CHGO is far beyond what I could have expected. While I loved being a part of everyone's mornings with Midway Minute, CHGO is the all-day, multi-platform experience I hoped the newsletter could one day become.

Thanks to a real staff and ALLCITY NETWORK's previous success with DNVR and PHNX, I get to skip a lot of the hard steps and focus solely on creating great content for fellow Chicago sports fans with a stable of writers and podcasters I've long admired.

Robert Feder has more details (look Ma, I made Feder!) and I also wrote a welcome post on our website.

I'm in ... where can I find everything?

What does it cost?

Podcasts and live shows are free, but a paid membership gets you access to our exclusive written content (including some of my longer features and columns), members-only Discord community, special deals on our merch and more.  

Will you still be writing a newsletter?

Yes! While I love getting the opportunity to help produce podcasts and write members-only columns, I'm still in love with the newsletter format and the bond you share with someone when they invite you into their inbox.

The new newsletter will come out each Monday and will feature one of my takes on the current sports scene, a look at the week ahead and links to both CHGO content and other stuff I'm digging around town. I need some more time to get things up and running, but expect it for free in your inboxes soon.

And once more, thank you.  I really do keep pinching myself over this opportunity and I can't wait to work just as hard for you at CHGO as I did with Midway Minute the last two years. Let's go.
