Cubs announce 2016 television broadcast schedule

The Cubs announced their 2016 regular-season television schedule featuring broadcasts from Comcast SportsNet Chicago, WGN-TV and WLS-TV/ABC 7.

WLS-TV/ABC 7 will televise Opening Night from Anaheim on Monday, April 4 at 9:05 p.m. CDT, the station’s first of 25 games this season. Comcast SportsNet Chicago has its first of as many as 86 games on Tuesday, April 5 at 9:05 p.m. CDT from Anaheim (this game is scheduled for CSN+). WGN-TV’s first of 45 broadcasts will take place on Friday, April 8 at 8:40 p.m. CDT at Arizona. WGN-TV will also televise the Cubs’ home opener on Monday, April 11 vs. Cincinnati at 7:05 p.m. CDT.

Cubs games have been televised by WGN since 1948 (a handful of the 45 WGN-TV produced games will be televised by WPWR My50 Chicago). This will be Comcast SportsNet’s 12th season televising the Cubs and the second for WLS-TV/ABC 7.

Len Kasper returns for his 12th season in the Cubs’ television booth and will be joined by Jim Deshaies for their fourth season together broadcasting Cubs baseball.
