The Chicago Cubs may be closing in on a deal to launch a new regional television network in 2020.
The Cubs will finish out their contract with NBC Sports Chicago next year.
NBCSCH has had broadcast rights to all four Chicago teams, the Blackhawks, Bulls, White Sox and the Cubs since 2004.
Many Cubs games are still expected to be carried on Fox and ESPN, since they are the broadcast partners for Major League Baseball.
The Sun-Times reported that the team will partner with Sinclair Broadcasting for the new network.
