Welcome to Jen Wielgus Journalism!

I’m Jen Wielgus, a Chicago native living in Philly who spent almost 20 of her 42 years on Earth working in the sports media — and all of those years cheering hard for the Cubbies.

I’m an athlete and writer with an all-or-nothing personality that means everything I do, I do it with passion. After leaving my job as a video reporter for a media company in Bucks County, Pa., I created this site to keep connected to my beloved local sports community. In July 2019, when I finally decided to start fighting my alcohol addiction, it morphed into a weekly chronicle of my recovery journey.

Thank you for visiting. Please enjoy. GO CUBS GO!
