New Publisher for Northsiders Report

NorthsidersReport has a new publisher for the website for the 2013 baseball season. Let the games begin.

Hello Cub fans.

I'm ‘Committed'.

Committed' to providing you coverage of the Chicago Cubs organization and their minor league system this season for the Fox family.

Been around baseball my entire life—whether it was bagging up equipment after dad's high school practices as a nine-year-old in the spring or filling in as the official scorekeeper at a Midwest League game during the summer as an adult—Baseball has always been part of my life.

And yes, I'm a lifelong Cub fan still waiting for the day they win the World Series. Heck, at this point in my life, I would settle for getting there. I got hooked at Billy Williams Day in 1969 watching Fergie Jenkins out duel Bob Gibson in the first game of a twin-killing of the Red Birds.

I've spent 25 years as a sports reporter/photographer for three different newspaper publications in Northwestern Illinois and have experience covering a variety of news stories.

So, the scouting report on me is…... I like the Cubs, minor league baseball, and writing. Looking forward to the challenge and opportunity.

Hope you enjoy the coverage and most of all—enjoy the Cubs.

Mike Nester
