Default Broadcast News...

Bruce Levine is reporting tonight at the Score web site (I know, take it with a grain of salt) that at the end of October 2019 WGN-TV is officially out of the sports business locally after almost 80 years.

He writes, "Either an entire cable package or some kind of subscription format will be in place for Chicago fans to purchase cable or digital sports programming after the present deal between NBC Sports Chicago and the Cubs, White Sox, Blackhawks and Bulls expires in the early fall of 2019."

He says the difference per baseball team between what they get from NBC Sports Chicago and WGN is 550,000 dollars per game. 750,000 vs. 200,000.

He also writes that the Cubs are hoping when they get their new broadcast rights to get ONE MILLION DOLLARS per game.

He also says that if the Cubs do go their own way the other three teams will have their own regional sports network be it back at NBC Sports Chicago or elsewhere since the relationship between JR and Rocky Wirtz is very solid.
