Cubs likely to start own media network after 2019 season

So, WGN as it was in the 1990s, only with no Bozo?

Move over, YES Network?

“It’s a great time to be us,” Crane Kenney said Saturday regarding the possibility the Cubs could start their own media network after their contracts with NBC Sports Chicago, ABC-7 and WGN-9 expire after the 2019 season.

“We have a big passion for controlling our own destiny,” added Kenney, the Cubs president of business operations. “It’s sort of like conversations in the real estate market. We like controlling our own destiny. You start adding partners and it becomes a lot more complicated.”
