Brenly Will Not Return To Cubs Broadcast Booth
(WSCR) The end of “Len & Bob” is here.
According to an official statement released by WGN, Bob Brenly will not return to the Cubs broadcast booth for the 2013 season.
“Working here in Chicago was one of the most enjoyable experiences of my professional career,” Brenly said in a statement. “The Ricketts family, everyone associated with the Cubs and WGN and, most importantly, Cubs’ fans everywhere, will always be in our hearts, and Joan and I wish nothing but the best for the organization moving forward.”
While no immediate plans have been announced, the statement said Brenly “will seek another baseball broadcasting position.”
With both Daron Sutton and Mark Grace being let go from the Diamondbacks broadcast booth, speculation has been that Brenly may return to Arizona.
Brenly, who managed the D-Backs from 2001-04, winning a World Series with the team in 2001, joined the Cubs TV broadcast booth as the color analyst in November of 2004 to replace Steve Stone.
