WGN

The first regular-season Chicago Cubs game was broadcast on 720 AM WGN in April, 1925 (seventeen years after they last won the World Series.)  Cubs games have been heard exclusively on the station since 1958.  This longtime partnership ends today as the News/Talker airs its last Cubs game before the team begins a seven-year deal with 780 AM WBBM.  WGN was losing money on the games and cited low ratings during the team's recent on-field struggles as the reason they exercised an out-clause in its broadcast contract.
