Cubs announce TV, radio affiliate guide for 2015 season
On Wednesday afternoon, the Cubs announced an affiliate station guide to complement the 2015 television and radio schedule featuring broadcasts from Comcast SportsNet Chicago, WGN-TV, WLS-TV/ABC 7 and WBBM Newsradio 780-AM.
WGN-TV’s first of 45 broadcasts will take place Tuesday, April 7, at 7:05 p.m. vs. the Cardinals, the club’s second game of the season following the national opener on ESPN2 Sunday, April 5. WLS-TV/ABC 7, a new television home for the Cubs in 2015, will televise the first of its 24 games Wednesday, April 8, at 1:20 p.m. vs. the Cardinals. Comcast SportsNet Chicago has its first of as many as 87 games Saturday, April 11, at 7:10 p.m. at the Rockies (this game is scheduled for CSN+).
WBBM Newsradio 780-AM, the club’s radio rightsholder, will carry all regular and postseason games. During these broadcasts, non-stop news coverage will be available on-air at 105.9 FM, online at CBSChicago.com or via the Radio.com app available for mobile devices.
“Our goal is to provide Cubs games to as many fans as possible throughout our territories,” said Cubs President of Business Operations Crane Kenney. “We appreciate the effort of Comcast SportsNet and our over-the-air broadcasters to bring Cubs games to homes in markets outside of Chicago.”
Fans located in viewing and listening areas outside of the WBBM Newsradio 780-AM, Comcast SportsNet Chicago, WGN-TV and WLS-TV/ABC 7 markets can tune in to hear or watch Cubs games on the affiliate stations listed on the broadcast information page at Cubs.com. Cubs fans living in markets whose service provider does not currently carry Comcast SportsNet are encouraged to contact their local providers to express an interest in viewing Cubs games. For Cubs games outside of the team’s home television territory, fans can purchase a subscription to MLB.TV.
