According to Lewis Lazare in the Sun-Times, the Sox and WSCR will soon announce a deal for the team's broadcasts to stay on the station:â†µâ†µ
The Chicago White Sox and CBS Radio Chicago's sports talk WSCR-AM (670) will announce as early as today that they have inked a new broadcast deal that gives WSCR exclusive radio rights to air all White Sox games -- more than 160 a season -- for the next five years.â†µâ†µâ†µ
â†µSources say WSCR is expected to stick with its current team of on-air talent for White Sox games, including pre- and post-show host Chris Rongey and the game play-by-play announcer team of Ed Farmer and Darrin Jackson.
The Sox have been on the Score for the last five years; before that their games had been on ESPN 1000. As part of the new agreement, the team will launch a dedicated White Sox HD channel on 104.3-3 featuring programming created exclusively by the club.
