Cubs announce 2015 TV broadcast schedule

Pitchers and catchers reporting to Spring Training is a signal that the regular season is just around the corner. On Friday, the Cubs announced their 2015 regular season television schedule featuring broadcasts from Comcast SportsNet Chicago, WGN-TV and WLS-TV/ABC 7.

WGN-TV’s first of 45 broadcasts will take place on Tuesday, April 7, at 7:05 p.m. vs. the St. Louis Cardinals, the club’s second game of the season following the national opener on ESPN2 on Sunday, April 5. WLS-TV/ABC 7, a new television home for the Cubs in 2015, will air the first of its 24 games on Wednesday, April 8, at 1:20 p.m. vs. the Cardinals. Comcast SportsNet Chicago will broadcast its first of as many as 87 games on Saturday, April 11, at 7:10 p.m. at the Colorado Rockies (this game is scheduled for CSN+).

Cubs games have been televised by WGN since 1948 (some of the 45 WGN-TV produced games will be televised by WPWR My50). This will be Comcast SportsNet’s 11th season televising the Cubs and the first for WLS-TV/ABC 7. FOX is also scheduled to televise up to six games during the season.

Len Kasper returns for his 11th season in the Cubs’ television booth and will be joined by Jim Deshaies, who is entering his third year with the club.
