Feder: ESPN 1000 at the finish line for White Sox radio rights
The headline here in August read: "White Sox appear headed to ESPN 1000." Now it's about to come true. Sources confirmed Tuesday that the Chicago White Sox have rejected a bid for the team's radio rights by Entercom, parent company of all-news WBBM 780-AM/WCFS 105.9-FM. With previous radio home Nexstar Media Group news/talk WGN 720-AM out of the picture, that leaves WMVP 1000-AM, the ESPN Radio sports/talk station managed by Good Karma Brands, as the winner. All signs point to an announcement in the coming days. For more on the media beat, visit robertfeder.com.
