David Schuster

I have been covering the local sports scene for the last 30 years and in that time have seen more games and events then anybody. I’ve been privileged to have covered 9 local championships (6 by the Bulls, and one each by the Bears, White Sox & Blackhawks). I have also covered 3 no hitters and one perfect game and had the honor of covering the best basketball player ever on a daily basis. Not only do I love reporting on sports but I equally enjoy participating (Basketball, Baseball, Golf, Tennis…etc.) You name it and I love it. I’m a huge movie goer who also likes to travel and I own a piece of a local minor league baseball team as well as a piece of a local restaurant.
