Report: Cubs, WGN agree to new 45-game television deal

The Chicago Cubs and WGN-TV will announce a new television deal this week, according to 670 The Score’s Bruce Levine.

WGN will broadcast 45 Cubs games this season, according to Levine, reuniting the two longtime broadcast partners.

The Cubs had opted not to continue airing games on WGN after last season, leaving 70 games without a television home. The team struck a deal with WLS-TV last month to air 25 games, leaving 45 in the balance.

The remaining games on the Cubs schedule are aired by Comcast SportsNet Chicago.
