The club’s new radio rights-holder, 670 The Score, will air its first game on March 5 when the Cubs host the Reds. Pat Hughes and Ron Coomer return as the radio voices of the Cubs. Comcast SportsNet Chicago’s first game will air on March 16 when the Cubs play at the Royals. WGN-TV has its first game on March 20 when the Cubs host the Royals. Len Kasper and Jim Deshaies return to call all Cubs TV games.
