Bulls head to WMVP

The Chicago Tribune is reporting that the Chicago Bulls will announce this coming week a deal with ESPN-owned WMVP-AM to air games starting with the season opener on October 31.

WMVP, or ESPN Radio 1000, was the home for Bulls basketball during the franchise’s glory years in the nineties. In 2006, the Bulls took their radio broadcasts in-house and bought time on WCKG, similar to what the Chicago Blackhawks does with their hockey games, which air on WSCR-AM (The Score).

The deal means that a WCKG format flip is all but a done deal. The only question is what format and when.
