CHICAGO, April 30, 2008 – Blackhawks fans will soon find their favorite team on Chicago’s favorite radio station as all home and road Blackhawks games will be broadcast on WGN Radio beginning this season.

The Chicago Blackhawks and WGN Radio announced today that they have agreed to a three-year partnership that will make WGN Radio the flagship station for Blackhawk Hockey through 2010-2011.

The agreement unites two institutions that are synonymous with Chicago and have been part of the city’s fabric for more than 80 years.

“This is a big step forward in the new direction of this franchise,” said Blackhawks President John McDonough. “WGN Radio is one of the most powerful and prestigious stations in the country and will play an integral role in delivering our great product to as wide an audience as possible.”

“The Blackhawks are proud to partner with one of the most recognized call letters in the business,” said Jay Blunk, Blackhawks Senior Vice President of Business Operations. “The legendary power and reach of WGN Radio will expose our brand to a new generation of Blackhawks fans at a perfect time in the team’s history. With some of the brightest young stars in the NHL, this agreement signals a new era of Blackhawks hockey.”

“WGN Radio is the Voice of Chicago and we’re proud to now also be the Voice of the Blackhawks,” said Tom Langmyer, Vice President/General Manager of WGN Radio. “WGN Radio and the Blackhawks truly represent the essence of life in Chicago and we’re thrilled to bring our listeners the excitement of Blackhawks hockey.”

Earlier this month, the Blackhawks announced a partnership with WGN Television and Comcast SportsNet, along with the National Hockey League’s network partners, Versus and NBC, to televise all 82 regular season games plus the playoffs in high definition.

As Chicago’s top-rated station, WGN Radio’s 50,000-watt signal reaches thirty-eight states and Canada and offers live Internet streaming available worldwide.
