No kidding. I can't even imagine the Cubs not being on WGN Radio. The Tribune era for the Cubs really is dead.

I know 2019 is still 5 years away, but I wonder if the Cubs would go it alone on a new cable RSN. The Bulls of course would stay with the Sox since they're both owned by JR. Would the Cubs try to peel away the Hawks from CSN? I know the Cubs are a very marketable franchise, but I wonder how much cable/sat operators are going to pay for a Cubs-only channel that needs to fill programming 12 months a year.
