New Chicago Sports Network to air Bulls, Blackhawks, White Sox

The Chicago Bulls, Blackhawks and White Sox have a new broadcast home for their next season with Monday’s announcement that the Chicago Sports Network will launch in October.

The network said in a news release that all three teams’ games will be available through “traditional cable providers, streaming services and free, over-the-air broadcast” and “will reach a widely expanded Midwest footprint, including most of Illinois and parts of Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, and Wisconsin, pending league approvals.”

Bulls broadcasters Adam Amin and Stacey King are expected to retain their roles for the 2024-25 season.

The network will be produced in partnership with Nashville, Tenn.-based Standard Media. Jason Coyle, formerly president of the Stadium network, was named president of the Chicago Sports Network.

“As we set out to design the network, we began and ended every discussion with the simple question: What is best for our fans?” Coyle said in a statement. “What is the best approach to distribution? How can we push the limits of both in-game and studio production? We plan to serve our fans on as many platforms and in as many markets as our rights allow.”

The teams’ contract with NBC Sports Chicago, which has held the rights for all three teams since 2004, is set to expire in October.
