WSCR-AM to host sports business luncheon with top sports execs

| No Comments

CBS Radio Chicago's sports talk WSCR-AM (670) is bringing out some really big guns for its Business of Sports luncheon on Thursday, Sept.16. The panel will include Chicago Cubs owner Tom Rickets, Chicago Bears president Ted Phillips, Chicago Blackhawks president John McDonough, Chicago White Sox chief marketing honcho Brooks Boyer, and Northwestern University athletic director Jim Phillips. WSCR morning drive co-hosts Mike Mulligan and Brian Hanley will co-host the event, along with WBBM-AM (780) Bears radio analyst Tom Thayer. "Anyone interested in finding out more on the business aspect of professional sports would be hard pressed to find such a breadth of information anywhere else," said Rod Zimmerman, CBS Radio Chicago market manager.

Tickets for the event go on sale today, and are available by calling 312-729-3936. The cost is $45 per person which includes a three-course lunch and the panel session.
