The latest project from the North camp is, an Internet concept developed by North in conjunction with David Hernandez, North's business partner and president of Spectrum Entertainment Group. Chicagosportswebio is slated to kick off Apr. 6. In a nutshell will be a destination for all things Chicago-sports related. Along with North and Dan Jiggetts, whose "Monsters in the Morning" TV show will be simulcast on, talent associated with the new online venture include Matt Weber, Fred Huebner, Jonathan Hood, Tim Doyle, Chet Coppock and boxing legend Boom Boom Mancini.
