Comcast SportsNet introduces new monthly sports feature show

| No Comments

Comcast SportsNet/Chicago has announced a new monthly series -- "net Impact Chicago" -- a local version of the national Comcast SportsNet half-hour program that looks beyond the stats and scores of daily sports coverage and goes behind the scenes to explore interesting or amusing aspects of Chicago's sports culture. Segments already in the can include a piece on Chicago Cubs announcer Bob Brenly and his son Michael, a catcher with the Cubs Single-A affiliate Peoria Chiefs. Another story looks at Chicago White Sox General Manager Kenny Williams' venture into the restaurant business, while another segment is an amusing analysis of veteran Chicago White Sox announcer Ken "Hawk" Harrelson. Material from 'net Impact Chicago" will also be used as rain delay programming during CSNC Cubs and White Sox telecasts. Hosts from CSNC's "SportsNite" will rotate as host of "net Impact Chicago."
