"We know a magazine about football in Chicago and across Illinois with in-depth analysis and great writing is going to be a home run and we think we have a huge target audience as we reach out across the NFL fan base, college fans and the high schools as well," Arkush said. "But to have the reception we've been getting and in particular the turnout we had tonight at the Chicago Sports Museum is gratifying beyond our wildest dreams. It's just great being in the football business in the best sports market in the world."

The new magazine and its ChicagoFootball.com website is a joint venture between the Daily Herald Media Group, Shaw Media and the Chicago Sun-Times. It will focus on all levels of football in the Chicago area, with heavy coverage of the pros and the Bears but also college football from a Chicago-area perspective as well as significant prep coverage.

Among the contributors are Bob LeGere, the Daily Herald's expert on the Bears, and John Dietz, the Daily Herald's fantasy football columnist.

The premiere issue hit magazine racks throughout the area recently. Subscription information is available at ChicagoFootball.com.
