Chicago, IL (September 15, 2008) – Comcast SportsNet Chicago, the television home for the most comprehensive local sports news and talk coverage of the Chicago sports scene, will celebrate the 1000th live airing of its flagship weeknight talk show, Chicago Tribune Live, on Wednesday, September 17 at 5:30 PM.

The 1000th live airing of “CTL” on September 17 will feature the program’s most prominent guest panel to date as White Sox and Bulls Chairman JERRY REINSDORF, Blackhawks Chairman ROCKY WIRTZ and Tribune Company Senior Vice President/General Counsel and Secretary CRANE KENNEY join host David Kaplan for this milestone telecast. This airing will also feature “flashbacks” from the show’s archive of top guests and top discussions over the past four years.

“This programming venture with the Chicago Tribune has truly given the Chicago sports fan a destination to hear from the experts in our industry on the important local sports topics that matter most to our viewers,” said James J. Corno, President of Comcast SportsNet Chicago. “I couldn’t be prouder of what ‘CTL’ has accomplished over the past thousand shows and I look forward to seeing this excellent program continue to grow in popularity over the next thousand shows.”

“We’re proud and happy to be associated with Comcast SportsNet though ‘Chicago Tribune Live,’ and we congratulate everyone involved with the one thousand-show milestone, added Dan McGrath, Associate Managing Editor for sports at the Chicago Tribune. “The producers, directors, hosts and panelists do a great job of creating a lively forum for discussion of the sports issues of the day, and our writers have benefited greatly from the exposure the program provides. We look forward to continuing the relationship for many years to come.”

Chicago Tribune Live presented by Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana Chevy Dealers, originally hosted by Comcast SportsNet’s Dan Jiggetts and currently hosted by Chicago sports personality David Kaplan, airs Monday-Friday from 5:30-6:30 PM on Comcast SportsNet and features a group of rotating writers from the Chicago Tribune, along with special guests from the local/national media and a variety of guests from the local/national sports and entertainment industry, discussing the day’s most pressing sports stories and hottest topics.

“Chicago Tribune Live” made its debut as Comcast SportsNet’s very first program ever to air on the regional sports network back on October 1, 2004. The first show, which took place at Comcast SportsNet’s temporary studio facilities in Oak Brook, IL, featured a panel that included Mike Ditka, John Paxson, Tribune sports writers Rick Morrissey and Phil Rogers and special guest Donovan McNabb.

Over the past four years, “Chicago Tribune Live” has featured hundreds of different guests from the sports and entertainment world including: Tiger Woods, Bernie Mac, Dennis Rodman, Dick Butkus, Peyton Manning, Carlton Fisk, Rocky Wirtz, John McDonough, Kenny Williams, Crane Kenney, Eddie Einhorn, Gary Bettman, David Stern, Chris Chelios, Frank Thomas, Dwayne Wade, Robert Klein, and Richard Roeper to name a few.

“Chicago Tribune Live” will continue its evolution this fall as every show will be produced in HD, along with the debut of a brand new studio set and new advertising title sponsor.
