This makes me sad


Statement from WGN-TV and Bob Brenly

October 17, 2012

Cubs analyst Bob Brenly has informed WGN-TV he will not return to the team’s broadcast booth in 2013, and instead will seek another baseball broadcasting position.

Bob Brenly/Broadcaster:

“Working here in Chicago was one of the most enjoyable experiences of my professional career.

The Ricketts family, everyone associated with the Cubs and WGN and, most importantly, Cubs’ fans everywhere, will always be in our hearts, and Joan and I wish nothing but the best for the organization moving forward.

I was very blessed to have the best play-by-play man in the game as my partner for eight years and Cubs’ fans are very fortunate to have Len Kasper as the voice of the Cubs. I’ll miss working with him and we look fondly toward returning to Chicago in the future.”

Steve Farber, Acting General Manager for WGN-TV and VP/Programming Operations for Tribune Broadcasting:

“We wish Bob well in his next broadcasting position and thank him for his years of outstanding work on Cubs games on WGN-TV.”
