The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem, and mine is simple: I am obsessed with the media. Living in Chicago, I am exposed to so many media outlets that I find it hard to do anything else but read, listen and react. Whether it be radio, print, or television, the media controls a majority of my day. Here are a few of my favorite types of media in Chicago:
"Mike & Mike" - Top sports radio show in the country and are seen live on cable television daily.
"Waddle and Silvy" - Very entertaining show that is a must-listen for me each day.
"Mully and Hanley" - Perfect combination of Chicago talent. Bulls and Bears experts. One is a Cubs fan, the other a Sox fan.
"The Me Show with Laurence Holmes" - Under-rated show with great Bears insight.
Jay Mariotti - You love him or hate him, and I love him. He will stop at nothing to put the White Sox, and anyone else who he doesn't like, in the worst light possible.
Greg Couch - Uses a different writing style that reads fast. Sometimes hard to figure out what his point is.
Mike Mulligan - Respected columnist who knows the Bears organization better than any writer in Chicago.
Brad Biggs - Dedicated to being at the right place at the right time and getting it out there as fast as possible.
Dan Pompei - NFL columnist who does a lot of research and isn't afraid to go against the grain.
Phil Rogers - Chicago's most respected baseball writer.
Teddy Greenstein - Media specialist who is a fantastic writer and writes must-read columns weekly.
Paul Sullivan - Great sense of humor and the players trust him and give him the better inside information.
David Haugh - Little bit of a homer, but always gets the scoop first.
Agreements? Disagreements? For those who have listen to these shows and read these columnists, who do YOU dislike; always have to read/listen?
