Steven Negishi, Contributor
I used to host a sports show on YouTube from October 2021 until August 2022, and now transitioned to podcasting. This is my first ever writing gig on any platform as well. I am an IT professional during the day, and I have been a lifelong Bears fan, who have been a frequent caller to Bears postgame shows on ESPN1000 and 670 The Score. I also follow other Chicago sports teams, particularly the Cubs, and European soccer, particularly English Premier League and German Bundesliga.

WRITE FOR US
We aren't called FanSided for nothing. Our network of sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites are powered by fans that want to cover their passions! Whether you are just looking to get your start in online media or you want to contribute to your favorite site as a hobby, FanSided wants to hear from you.
Whatever your goal, FanSided can help your voice be heard. If you are interested in writing for any of our sites, please be sure to check out our openings page and submit a proposal.
The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.
From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
