The agreement includes all 162 White Sox regular season and postseason games, as well as select spring training games. In its 10th season in the radio booth, the on-air duo of former Sox pitcher Ed Farmer (play-by-play) and former outfielder Darrin Jackson (analyst) returns.
"What an honor it is to join the White Sox family," said Todd Manley, WGN Radio station manager and vice president of content. "Summer starts TODAY on WGN Radio."
"It's a fantastic win for White Sox fans," said Brooks Boyer, White Sox senior vice president of sales and marketing. "We are thrilled to team up with an iconic media organization in Chicago, delivering the hustle and passion of White Sox games to WGN Radio listeners throughout the city and Midwest."
In addition to live game and spring training broadcasts, the agreement includes pre- and postgame programming, as well as a weekly year-round show that features team news, highlights and interviews with players and coaches.
The White Sox partnership with WGN Radio will complement the television partnership with WGN-TV.
