CBS Chicago Extends Contract With Bears
The Chicago Bears and CBS Radio Chicago announced an exclusive multi-year agreement to keep the team’s radio broadcast rights on WBBM Newsradio 780 & 105.9FM, while at the same time extending Bears coverage across CBS radio's five other Chicago stations (670 The Score, B96, 104.3 K-Hits, US 99.5, and 93 XRT) through a variety of specialty programming. WBBM has been the radio home of the Bears since 2000.
CBS Chicago Market Manager Rod Zimmerman said, “WBBM Newsradio has been the ‘Voice of the Bears’ for the last 13 seasons and we look forward with great excitement to the years ahead. The Chicago Bears have long had one of the largest fan bases anywhere in sports, and this partnership offers not only the fans many benefits, but our advertisers who support the broadcasts as well.”
