Pat Hughes makes Marquee Sports Network debut
“Chicago Cubs baseball is on the air!”
Legendary Cubs broadcaster Pat Hughes makes his Marquee Sports Network debut this Friday, marking his first time doing play-by-play on television for the Chicago Cubs. Hughes will work alongside analyst Jim Deshaies as the Cubs host the Brewers at 2 p.m. CT.
Hughes serves as the Chicago Cubs radio play-by-play voice for 670 The Score and is in his 26th season calling Cubs games. He is a nine-time recipient of the Illinois Sportscaster of the Year Award and in 2017 was the recipient of the Ring Lardner Award for Excellence in Sports Journalism in the broadcast category. Prior to joining the Cubs, he spent 12 seasons on the Milwaukee Brewers radio network from 1984-95. In 1983, he served as the TV voice of the Minnesota Twins. Hughes joined the Cubs Weekly Podcast this past offseason to reflect on his broadcasting career and his best memories of calling Cubs games.
Hughes will work a select number of Spring Training and regular season games this season on Marquee Sports Network, all filling in for Jon “Boog” Sciambi.
