The Cubs are close to having Comcast carry the team’s Marquee Sports Network. On a local sports talk radio show, Cubs’ President of Business Operations Crane Kenney said the team is close to finalizing an agreement with several carriers, including Comcast, to carry their televised games on Marquee. Kenney said the team and Comcast were in the final stages of a deal before the COVID-19 shutdown in mid-March. Comcast carries nearly half of the cable homes in the Chicagoland.
