Comcast SportsNet, the local television station owned by the Chicago Blackhawks, Bulls, Cubs, White Sox and NBC, has signed veteran Illinois high school football sports writer/recruiting authority Edgy Tim, also known as Tim O’Halloran, to be its local preps football expert effective August 1.
Edgy Tim (@EDGYTIM) is often featured on Rivals, which is owned by Yahoo. Even people like me, who despise National Signing Day, hate recruiting, can’t stand preps coverage, unfollow people who constantly tweet out high school sports and recruiting news, still recognize the talent and ability of Edgy Tim. He's at the very top of his specific game; no question.
He’ll write features each week for CSNChicago.com, focusing on Chicago-area high school football players, coaches, team profiles and recruiting stuff. Plus, CSN and Edgy Tim will co-create a new show on EdgyTim.com and CSNChicago.com.
Edgy Tim will also make weekly appearances on CSN’s preps highlights show, “High School Lites.” Edgy Tim joining CSN is yet another example of the Yahoo Sports and NBC Sports Group being in bed with each other. Internet traffic ranking service Alexa, known first and foremost for their rapidly updating list of “what’s trending,” is owned by Yahoo. So, big surprise here! The links that are almost always “trending” on Alexa are…..from pages owned by Yahoo and NBC!!! SHOCKING!
A native of Calumet City and graduate of T.F. North (SICA!!!) and SIU, Edgy Tim lives in Channahon (no clue where on Earth that is). In addition to his own website EdgyTim.com, he’s also in the Chicago Tribune like almost every day.
