Local market contests will feature: MLB / Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, New York Yankees, Arizona Diamondbacks and the Texas Rangers; NBA / Chicago Bulls, Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks; MLS / FC Dallas, Houston Dynamo, Chicago Fire; NFL / Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals; and NHL/ Chicago Blackhawks.

We are very proud to be the No. 1 destination for soccer in the U.S. and we’re equally excited to build on this by offering our audience local MLB, NBA and NFL games, in-depth and informative in-studio radio shows, as well as a wealth and variety of sports content across the country.”
