TRIBUNE Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO is offering the CHICAGO CUBS' victory song "GO CUBS GO" as a ringtone through its mobile marketing partner VIBES MEDIA. The tune, written for WGN in 1984 by the late folk legend and CUBS fan STEVE GOODMAN at the request of then-PD DAN FABIAN, is available for $2.99 by texting GO to 38726.
"'GO CUBS GO' is one of those tunes you just can't seem to get out of your head. We want everyone to hear it, sing it and to cheer on the CUBS before they actually answer the call!" said WGN Director of Marketing LORI BRAYER.
"VIBES MEDIA is proud to enable WGN Radio to make 'GO CUBS GO' widely available for the first time as a ringtone... which will have mobile phones across CHICAGOLAND ringing in harmony all the way to the World Series!" added a hopeful ALAN SIMKOWSKI, VP Entertainment at VIBES MEDIA.
