About Ernest James

I am a self-proclaimed “Nerd”, born and raised in Chicago. My family, coffee and a peace of mind are the most important things in my life.

I love music, sports and poetry and I am a firm believer in the “illusion” that relationships matter. Graduate from the Illinois Center for Broadcasting. I also write for the Bleacher Report where I cover the Chicago Fire as well offer my analysis on the Chicago Bulls, Bears, White Sox and their respective sports leagues.

If you are familiar with WCPT AM/FM radio, I was Ernest James from the radio show titled Our Town that aired on Sunday mornings at 8:00 for three years. You could hear me ramble a few notes about the local sports scene, but the moment the topic changes to everyday life situations, I rolled up my sleeves and my unabashed thoughts became words. Although Our Town is now gone, I am still hard at work. I am the senior writer and editor of my website Outside Analysis - www.outsideanalysis.com, writer for the The Inquisitr News - www.inquisitr.com and features writer for FanSided - www.fansided.com. Yep, this guy is busy.
