Sky On The Air

It worked for the Blackhawks so why not the Sky?

So low on the radar that some people wondered if they were still around, the Blackhawks saw their profile rise when they (finally) arranged to have home games televised on a regular basis. And having a decent season with some up-and-coming youngsters didn’t hurt either.

Now the Chicago Sky, the city’s WNBA franchise, is hoping for the same results after signing a new TV broadcast deal with WWME-TV, Channel 23.

The seemingly ubiquitous Me-TV will broadcast eight regular season Sky home games beginning with the May 22 home opener against Sacramento. Eric Collins will provide play-by-play while former Bull Stacey King will be the color analyst.

The Sky will continue to have their games broadcast on radio on WVON-AM, 1690 with local broadcast legend Les Grobstein as play-by-play man and Tauja Catchings as analyst.

The complete TV broadcast schedule is: May 22, Sacramento 7 p.m.; May 29, Minnesota, 7 p.m.; June 3, Los Angeles, 7 p.m.; June 13, Washington, 7:30 p.m.; June 28, Detroit, 7 p.m.; July 22, Indiana, 7 p.m.,; September 4, Seattle, 7 p.m.; September 14, Houston 3 p.m.
