89 WLS Sports Pregame Show – Thursday, July 17th – Producer’s Log

Chris Kuc, Hockey writer for the Chicago Tribune, joined the show to talk Blackhawks. The 2013-2014 season schedules was supposed to be released this week but has yet to happen. The problem with releasing the schedule is figuring out if the players can play in the 2014 Winter Olympics. With many of the key players potentially playing for their countries, Lou and the guys want to know if Hawks fans should be worried. Well, what happened last time the Hawks players played in the Olympics during the season? They won the Stanley Cup. Don’t worry Hawks fans!

We had breaking news during the show that the City Plan Commission APPROVED the $500 million revamp for Wrigley Field, which is the second oldest ballpark in America. 44th Ward Alderman Tom Tunney surprised everyone with an endorsement of the plan. The revamp plan includes a 175 room hotel, a four-screen digital advertising board, and a pedestrian bridge that will stretch over Clark Street. 

Tune in tomorrow at 5PM to hear the top sports stories around Chicago and the country!
