Seth Horwitz - Producer
Meet Seth: I have been a part of the TV side of Mike & Mike since the simulcast began in 2004. It has been very cool to see the show grow in so many ways. Proof of how big the show is can be found in the prime parking spot I get every day at 3 a.m. I'm a transplanted Chicagoan and I still hold true to those sports loyalties. Couldn't have picked a better time to come of age than during the Bulls' championship runs of the '90s and the Bears' dominance in Super Bowl XX. As for the Cubs... I've been at ESPN since 2000 when I started as a 21-year-old prodigy. Feel free to follow me on Twitter.
