TRIBUNE Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO stays in-house for its new CUBS pregame host, naming CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS pregame, postgame, and intermission host JUDD SIROTT to take over "CUBS CENTRAL." SIROTT, who will also handle one inning of play-by-play and will contribute to the "CUBS PLUS" postgame show, replaces CORY PROVUS, who left to join the MILWAUKEE BREWERS radio crew.
"We are delighted to have JUDD expand his role with WGN RADIO and join PAT (HUGHES) and RON (SANTO) in the booth," said WGN Sports Director DAVE EANET. "He is a polished broadcaster with a wide-range of experience. JUDD has done a tremendous job on our BLACKHAWKS broadcasts, and he will bring the same knowledge and enthusiasm to the CUBS booth."
