More news that the Cubs season is getting closer your 2017 broadcast schedule
Getting some news about broadcasting schedules for the Cubs this year. No times yet but we get what channels they will be on. Big change this year comes from WGN. Who will finally get some night games. No more tied to the stupid CW which made it so all cubs games had to be on in the daytime. This was so they could hair fucking the Dawson or whatever dumb show they have on now.
The WGN will get there 45 games this season which is cool with me. They will also be getting a pre and post game show for the whole year which if it’s the TV guys I’m cool with that. First game on the Channel with be April 5th the 3rd game of the season.
ABC 7 will be getting 25 games this year. This is how you know we are getting really national. ABC taking that many games is a big deal. Just fun too see. They have been bad for so long I think it’s like seeing your friend finally making it and you being proud of them. The first game of the year will be on here. The right ceremony will be on before and I dare you to fight back those tears.
aid ABC 7 President and General Manager John Idler: “There was no bigger sports story that captivated an entire city and country than the Chicago Cubs quest to win the World Series. When we began this partnership in 2015 we knew good things were going to happen, but a World Series win in year two, was magic. We know the Cubs will generate a tremendous amount of excitement again this year and we’re thrilled to showcase the World Champions on ABC 7 Cubs broadcasts.”
The rest of the games will be on CSN with 81 games being played. They actually have 9 being on CSN+ because it conflicts with other games. They better be playing the Marlins or the Phillies in those games because I don’t think I get that channel and I’m going to be super pissed if they get flexed out for the Sox. But if you don’t get the channel they are actually streaming every game on CNSchicago.com. It’s about time baseball started doing this.
It’s getting closer and closer. First spring training game is this weekend against San Francisco and also against the A’s 3:05 start times.
