America’s Foremost Authority since 1997
Fighting Irish Preview was born in 1997 as the dream of Phil Houk and Tim Prister. Phil has covered sports on the radio in Fort Wayne, Indiana since 1993 and is a native of South Bend. He grew up three doors down from Knute Rockne’s house in South Bend, and two blocks from Ara Parseghian’s home. Tim Prister is a life long resident of South Bend and graduate of Notre Dame. He was a varsity baseball player at ND and started covering Notre Dame football on a daily basis upon graduation in 1982. Today he serves as the Senior Editor of Irishillustrated.com on the 24/7 Sports network. On the Fighting Irish Preview podcast, Tim is billed as “America’s Foremost Authority on Notre Dame Football”, quite simply, because he is.
In 2019, Phil Houk of Fighting Irish Preview teamed up with veteran journalist and noted expert on cutting edge media technologies, Len Clark of Irish 101. Among other projects Phil and Len collaborated on were live game day video analysis via Facebook Live and the IRISH 101 GAMEDAY video preview program which is posted on IrishIllustrated.com and other online outlets each Friday afternoon during the season.
