The Chicago Cubs announced today that they will launch a new regional sports network from 2020 onwards. For the new company Marquee Sports Network, the Ricketts family has partnered with a real jewel of broadcasting: Sinclair. Yes, this Sinclair.
Not much is known about how much marquee costs, but this initiative is intended to serve better [Cubs] Fans "will eventually take the games out of the wireless network and put them on a channel that either costs a monthly payment or is paid for by a cable bill. It's all about these license fees.
Patriarch Joe Ricketts, the right billionaire who loves to pass on racist emails and whose money the team bought in 2009, must be thrilled. Soon he can find all his interests in one place.
