BREWERS BROADCASTER HUGHES SIGNS ON TO CUB BROADCASTS
Published November 30, 1995
Long-time Brewers radio broadcaster Pat Hughes was selected by WGN Radio to handle broadcasts of Cubs games in a two-year deal. Yesterday, it was reported that Chip Caray, Harry Caray's grandson, had won the radio job. Hughes will call nine innings of the games on radio, with partner Ron Santo serving as analyst. Hughes replaces Harry Caray, who used to call three innings on radio, and Thom Brennaman, who called six. Brennaman has left WGN and Caray's role will be "confined to WGN telecasts" (Bob Wolfley, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 11/30). Chip Caray remains a candidate for the TV job (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 11/30).
