March 31, 2016 at 4:41 AM (PT)
TRIBUNE MEDIA News-Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO may no longer carry CHICAGO CUBS baseball, but the station, the former longtime flagship for the team, is not ignoring the sport, hiring former CUBS pitchers KERRY WOOD and RYAN DEMPSTER as baseball analysts, according to ROBERTFEDER.COM.
Both will appear on THURSDAYS on the station, with DEMPSTER on STEVE COCHRAN's morning show and WOOD on ROE CONN's afternoon show.
In addition, FEDER reports that morning producer KEVIN POWELL has moved to serve as afternoon sports anchor to fill the gap left when CONNOR MCKNIGHT joined crosstown CUMULUS News-Talk WLS-A as WHITE SOX pre-game and post-game host.
