List of Chicago White Sox broadcasters



Shared rights (pre-1944)

In 1943 and earlier, several stations carried the White Sox simultaneously. The team allowed as many stations as desired to carry their games, although probably not all stations carried all games, especially road games. For example, in 1931, Sox games aired on WIBO, WMAQ, WGN, WENR, and WCFL. Announcers for stations other than WGN and WMAQ are unknown.

Exclusive radio rights weren't awarded by the Sox until 1944.

Due to the North American Regional Broadcasting Agreement that took effect on March 29, 1941, WBBM moved from 770 to 780 kHz, WENR/WLS moved from 870 to 890, WCFL moved from 970 to 1000 and WJJD moved from 1130 to 1160. Most American and Canadian stations above 730 kHz changed frequencies on this date.

Exclusive rights (since 1944)

On January 18, 2018, WLS owner Cumulus announced that they are exercising their opt-out clause and voiding its contract with the White Sox, due to the company's current bankruptcy proceedings.

The White Sox and WGN Radio signed a multiyear agreement on 2/14/2018.

WJJD was a daytime-only station the years they had the White Sox radio rights. Night games were carried on WIND, WFMF, WBKI, and WCFL as listed above.
