Lester A. Wiltfong Jr.

Lester's passion for writing actually came through music. His initial creative outlet was writing song lyrics, and he's had his songs heard on the FOX sitcoms Titus and Wanda At Large, the talk show The View, in the full length movie Desire Of Innocence, and on the Home Jam segment of Chicago’s #1 radio station WGCI. His songs have been played in several other countries including Spain, France, Australia, and Sweden. Lester has worked with numerous producers through the years, including acclaimed Hollywood music producer Rob Walsh. In 2006 his writing took a turn towards sports, and he eventually became the Official Chicago Bears Blogger of the Sporting News website. It was through that work that that he was hired as a writer and now an editor of Windy City Gridiron in 2009. He can be found writing about sports in a few other places, and occasionally crossing into the entertainment genre on We Got This Covered since March of 2011.
