This year marks Arkush’s 31st year as the publisher and editor of Pro Football Weekly. Prior to his PFW days, he spent a year and a half in Carbondale, Illinois at Southern Illinois University before transferring to the University of Michigan, where he majored in English and physical education. In addition to his first love, PFW, career-wise that is, he worked as color commentator on the Chicago Bears Radio Network from 1987-2004. Arkush also created and has co-hosted the syndicated Pro Football Weekly Radio and TV shows for a number of years. PFW Radio was born in 1987 and airs in 137 markets around the country, 52 weeks a year. The PFW TV show launched in 1988 and now airs in about 40 million homes on Comcast Sports Net from August through the Super Bowl. Arkush launched the Pro Football Weekly Web site in 1998, and since 2006, he has served as an analyst and sideline reporter on the Westwood One National radio broadcasts of NFL games. Arkush also has been lucky enough to cover the last 31 Super Bowls. By far his greatest accomplishments are the 28 years he somehow has convinced his wife, Candace, to tolerate him and that their boys Billy, 30, and Arthur, 26, and their baby girl Taylor, 24, still like to hang with them every once in a while.
