Longtime CHICAGO CUBS radio analyst RON SANTO has signed a deal to continue with flagship TRIBUNE Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO for three more years. The CHICAGO SUN-TIMES reports that SANTO, 70, the former star third baseman, is getting "a lot of perks because of my legs," as the double-amputee (die to diabetes) puts it. "I go nuts when I can’t be at the games, but I have to think about my family and my health. So if I’m not feeling well or get wiped out, I’ll take certain days off, and they [WGN] have no problem with that."
SANTO and PAT HUGHES have teamed to call CUBS games on WGN for 14 years.
