The Bulls will debut on WSCR on Saturday, February 3 with its game against the Los Angeles Clippers. Chuck Swirsky and Bill Wennington will continue as the broadcasters for the franchise’s games with Steve Kashul as pregame, postgame, and halftime show hosts. The new agreement will run through the 2020-2021 season.
The Bulls had signed a five year agreement with WLS in 2015 that started with the 2016-2017 season. Cumulus sought to have the contract rejected along other “unprofitable contracts” includingthe play-by-play rights to MLB’s Chicago White Sox at its February 1 bankruptcy court hearing.

Bulls games will air on 670 The Score (AM 670) beginning Saturday, February 3 at 2:30 p.m. CDT, when the Bulls take on the Los Angeles Clippers in LA.
The agreement, which runs through the 2020-21 season, includes all Bulls preseason, regular, and postseason games, as well as pre- and postgame programming. The long-time broadcast team of Chuck Swirsky, Bill Wennington, and Steve Kashul will continue to bring all Bulls home and away games to fans.
