The Chicago White Sox are moving to WGN according to All Access. After their rights agreement with Cumulus Media’s WLS became null and void during bankruptcy dealings, the franchise started seeking a new radio home, and found one, just in time for spring training.
“What an honor it is to join the White Sox family,” said WGN VP/Content Todd Manley. “Summer starts today on WGN Radio.”
“It’s a fantastic win for WHITE SOX fans,” added White Sox SVP/Sales & Marketing Brooks Boyer. “We are thrilled to team up with an iconic media organization in Chicago, delivering the hustle and passion of White Sox games to WGN Radio listeners throughout the city and Midwest.”
The new partnership has no affect on the broadcast booth. Ed Farmer returns as play by play voice, and Darrin Jackson as the color analyst.
