Cubs will have a new TV network in 2020

The Chicago White Sox, Chicago Bulls, and Chicago Blackhawks have reached a new deal with NBC Sports Chicago according to MLB insider Bruce Levine on Tuesday.

The new NBC Sports Chicago will not have the Cubs included on their channel and will begin in October 2019.

"The Cubs are splitting apart on their own venture, which is expected to begin in February 2020, when spring training starts to open a new season," Levine said. "The Cubs are expected to have a broadcast equity partner in their new venture."


The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that the new network will be called Marquis which is with the Sinclair Broadcast Group.
