Luis Medina, a 2009 SIU graduate that used to work for the Daily Egyptian, now covers the Chicago Bears and Chicago Cubs.

Medina, Brett Taylor and Michael Cerami started The Ten-Yard Line, an online blog covering the Bears, last year. Medina, the head Bears writer for the site, also covers the Cubs for Bleacher Nation and occasionally makes appearances on WGN's CW station.

In this week's Salukimania Podcast, Medina talks about fighting for readers in the Chicago market, the prospects for the Bears' eighth pick, and the life of a correspondent/stringer.
