Analyst and former major league player KEITH MORELAND has announced that he is leaving the CHICAGO CUBS' radio booth to spend more time with his family. MORELAND, who spent parts of 12 seasons in the majors, mostly with the PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES and the CUBS, has been partnered with PAT HUGHES since the 2011 season.
MORELAND wrote in a note to the WGN staff, “I would like to thank the fans, the folks at WGN Radio, my colleagues in the booth, the RICKETTS family (CUBS owners), and the CUBS for this great opportunity. After spending three years doing it, I’ve simply decided that I want to spend more time at home in TEXAS.”
HUGHES said, “I immensely enjoyed my three years with KEITH. He was fun to be around, insightful, and a team player. Like our listeners, I feel like I learned a little more about baseball each day from him. I wish KEITH all the best and I will miss him greatly.”
WGN Sports Director DAVE EANET said, “On behalf of WGN Radio, we want to thank KEITH for three great years in the booth. He’s been a terrific member of our CUBS broadcast team, on and off the air. We’ll miss his baseball insight, his energy, and upbeat personality.”
