The Chicago Wolves will return to network television this season when the team airs 15 home games on Fox-owned WPWR-Channel 50. All other games -- home, away and playoffs -- will continue to be broadcast live on Comcast Network 100. "We're pleased to be partnering with the Wolves to bring fans even more coverage of their favorite team," said Michael Renda, vice president and general manager of WPWR, adding "this deal is part of what we hope will continue to be a growing Chicago sports franchise presence of My50."

The Chicago Urban League is producing a new half-hour weekly television show that will air Sunday mornings starting Feb. 22 on Fox-owned WFLD-Channel 32, with an encore airing on WPWR-Channel 50. Called "NextTV," the entirely locally-produced program is designed to showcase the transformation of African-Americans as they grow their businesses, makeover their careers, enter the job market and discover the tools needed to achieve financial security. Urban League CEO and President Cheryle Jackson is credited with spearheading the drive to get the show produced and on the air. To view a video preview of the show, visit the Chicago Urban League Web site.
