We expect to be passing along many of these in the next few days, as the Chicago Cubs released their spring-training broadcast schedule, with nearly every game available via television, radio or internet radio broadcast.
In total, a Cubs game will be available every game day of the spring schedule via one or more broadcast mediums, and 30 of the 33 games are scheduled to be available to Cubs fans overall.
The schedule features 10 games televised by Cubs broadcast partners (seven by Comcast SportsNet Chicago and three by WGN-TV), eight on the WBBM Newsradio 780 Cubs Radio Network and 21 via internet radio broadcast on cubs.com. Fans will be able to access the Cubs Webcasts on cubs.com and MLB.com for free by registering for a log-in account with the website.
WBBM-AM Newsradio 780, the club’s new radio rightsholder, will air its first game on Saturday, March 7 when the Cubs play at the Colorado Rockies with Pat Hughes and Ron Coomer on the call. Comcast SportsNet Chicago’s first game will occur from Las Vegas on Friday, March 13, when the Cubs play the Oakland Athletics. WGN-TV has its first game on Sunday, March 15 when the Cubs host the Cincinnati Reds at Sloan Park. Len Kasper and Jim Deshaies return to call all Cubs TV games.
Kasper will again join Mick Gillispie, radio broadcaster for Chicago’s Double-A Tennessee affiliate, for most of the cubs.com internet radio broadcasts.
All games start at 1:05 p.m. Arizona time unless otherwise noted. Chicago is one hour ahead of Arizona through Saturday, March 7 before moving to two hours ahead on Sunday, March 8.
