WGN will be good for the Sox.

I still would have preferred to have an all sports station.

It really sucks they left the Score to begin with.

My understanding (from social media) was the Score wanted to keep the Sox but at a discount due to the poor product. I bet WGN is paying that same discounted price today.

I wonder what station the Sox will get bumped to when the Sox and Blackhawks have games on the same night?

Which? The White Sox or the Score?

The Score wanted to renew the Sox but at a cheaper rate in 2015.

Indeed. With the Sox gone, I have ZERO reasons to ever tune in to 890 AM again (sorry, Dahl fans!). I've never had an interest in WGN Radio, but if this deal goes through, it's being added to my car's presets.

Agreed. It's a great deal - access to home and away radio broadcasts for every MLB game with no blackout restrictions. Also, you get the MLB App with Gameday pitch-by-pitch coverage and video highlights.

Agree with all the positive reviews of the MLB radio app -- it allows me to avoid Farmio by listening to the opponent's broadcast of Sox games.


WGN radio also has an app -- currently you can hear all Blackhawks radio broadcasts on it. I'd imagine the Sox broadcasts will be available on the WGN radio app -- good news for those of you who live outside the Chicago area.

I wouldn't bank on it. MLB is pretty draconian about streaming rights.

NELL, if you have Sirius in the car, like I do, you can download the app on your phone. Works great.

I'll now have two reasons to listen to WGN: the Hawks and the Sox.

I don't think we have to worry about that this year.

There's one conflict -- Hawks are at St. Louis on Wednesday, April 4. Sox are at Toronto that same night.

Aside from that, yeah, you're right. Hawks are done April 7. There won't be hockey in Chicago in May and June this year.

You're forgetting about October. Blackhawks season begins. Sox PLAYOFFS!

What did WGN do when the hawks/cubs were on WGN? Whatever they did , they will do the same with the Sox/hawks.
