The Chicago White Sox and WSCR 670 The Score announced a new multiyear agreement, extending the relationship between the team and the CBS Radio-owned sports radio station.
Under the agreement, WSCR will broadcast all regular and postseason White Sox games, along with a number of spring training games, during each of the next five seasons. WSCR has broadcast Sox games since the 2006 season.
“Baseball and radio were made for each other. The White Sox are a premier franchise that all of us at The Score have been very proud to represent the past five years. We look forward to continuing this great partnership and growing our brands together,” said Rod Zimmerman, Senior Vice President and Market Manager for CBS Radio Chicago.

As part of the new agreement, the team will launch a dedicated White Sox HD channel on 104.3-3 featuring programming created exclusively by the club.
“We are excited to be back on WSCR, delivering our games to White Sox fans over its great signal,” said White Sox senior vice president of sales and marketing Brooks Boyer. “In addition, the digital radio option outlined in the new broadcast agreement gives us an opportunity to further communicate with White Sox and casual baseball fans. The potential growth in the HD radio industry presents a strong business opportunity for the White Sox.”
The White Sox and WSCR also extended their agreement with the broadcast duo of 20-year radio veteran and former Sox pitcher Ed Farmer and former Sox outfielder Darrin Jackson. Farmer will continue to serve as the play-by-play voice of the White Sox, with Jackson handling color commentary during all regular-season and postseason games.
The launch date of the HD Channel will be announced at a later date.
