CHICAGO — The Chicago Cubs are officially announcing the forming of its own sports network.
The Cubs are teaming up with Sinclair Broadcast Group to launch the “Marquee Sports Network” in February of 2020.
“We are excited to better serve our fans with expanded and exclusive programming showcasing our remarkable players, beloved ballpark and storied past,” said Cubs President of Business Operations Crane Kenney. “Our dedicated ‘Cubs-centric’ network will carry all available Cubs games and feature uncompromising, in-depth and behind-the-scenes coverage.”
