WGN Adds Wood and Dempster as Analysts

WGN may no longer be the flagship station of the Chicago Cubs, but that doesn’t mean they won’t cover the club as if they were.

The radio station announced today that former Chicago Cubs pitchers Kerry Wood and Ryan Dempster have been hired as baseball analysts. The duo will make appearances every Thursday, with Dempster joining Steve Cochran’s morning show, and Wood visiting with Roe Conn’s afternoon show.

“Woody and Dempster are the perfect pair to drive the conversation during a year loaded with great storylines,” said Todd Manley, vice president of programming and content at WGN. “Baseball’s in our DNA, and we can’t wait to get this season rolling.”
