Cubs announce broadcast schedules for Spring Training and Regular Season Games for 2019

Nearly every Chicago Cubs Spring Training game will be available to Cubs fans via television, radio or internet radio broadcast as the club announced its 2019 Spring Training broadcast schedule on Tuesday.

In total, a Cubs game will be available every game day of the spring schedule via one or more broadcast mediums, and 32 of the 34 games are scheduled to be available to Cubs fans overall.

The schedule features six games televised by Cubs broadcast partners (four by WGN-TV and two by NBC Sports Chicago), 10 on the 670 The Score Cubs Radio Network and 22 via internet radio broadcast on www.cubs.com. Fans will be able to access the Cubs Webcasts on Cubs.com and MLB.com for free by registering for a log-in account with the website.

670 The Score will air its first game on Saturday, Feb. 23, the club’s season opener at Sloan Park, when the Cubs play the Milwaukee Brewers. Pat Hughes and Ron Coomer return as the radio voices of the Chicago Cubs. WGN-TV will televise its first game when the Cubs host the Brewers on March 2. Len Kasper and Jim Deshaies return to call all Cubs TV games. NBC Sports Chicago’s first game will occur on March 17, when the Cubs host the Colorado Rockies.

Kasper will again join Mick Gillispie, radio broadcaster for the Cubs’ Double-A Tennessee affiliate, for most of the cubs.com internet radio broadcasts.

All games start at 1:05pm Arizona time unless otherwise noted. Chicago is one hour ahead of Arizona through Saturday, March 9 before moving to two hours ahead on Sunday, March 10.

The 2019 Spring Training broadcast schedule is below.

The Cubs also announced on Tuesday the team’sr 2019 regular season television schedule featuring broadcasts from NBC Sports Chicago, WGN-TV and WLS-TV/ABC 7.

In 2019, NBC Sports Chicago will televise as many as 83 Cubs games, WGN-TV will broadcast 45 games and WLS-TV/ABC 7 has 25 games.

In addition, all 162 games will be available on radio via 670 The Score as the station enters its fourth season as the official Cubs Radio Network.
