Brad Zibung Love affair and wife
Brad met his wife Sarah Spain at a charity bowling event in 2008. Their love didn’t flourish at all. In fact, they had the first shot at a date in a Cubs game nearly a year later in 2009. Zibung had asked Spain to the game via Facebook message, but he only revealed himself as someone who worked for the satirical sports newspaper, The Heckler. At the time Spain was working for sports website MouthpieceSports.com, and it was a good opportunity to meet someone who worked at The Heckler.

We can say they pretty know each other and are accustomed to their tight work schedule. In November of 2016, they went for honeymoon coinciding with Zebung’s 40th birthday.

Zibung’s work as founder and editor in chief of The Heckler has earned him a lot of praise and recognition. His college (UWO) journalism department chairman Mike Cowling is among those who praised. He said,
“The self-assured Zibung’s quick sense of humor makes him a natural at entertaining readers in print and online at www.theheckler.com. I believe he found a way to tap into the consciousness of the much-maligned Cubs sports fans to create a site where parody and real reporting give them a place to laugh and cry at the same time,”
He added, “The publication’s Web site has been ahead of the curve in providing content-specific material for a focused audience.”
In addition to publication and real estate work, Brad is a passionate sports fan with season tickets to the Cubs, Blackhawks, Bears, and Bulls.
