WGN Names Keith Moreland Cubs Broadcaster

As many people have expected, WGN Radio today named Keith Moreland to succeed Ron Santo in the Cubs radio booth alongside Pat Hughes.

This is a logical choice, and in my opinion, the best one. Moreland represents the "next generation" of Cubs players after the 1969 group that Santo epitomized. Moreland was a member of the 1984 Cubs NL East title team and well-loved for his tough, Texas-linebacker-style play in the field. He was a good, not great, player, and has done a good job filling in at times for Santo over the last couple of years.

He'll be 57 years old in May, so he could conceivably have this job for a number of years and develop a good rapport with Pat.

No one will ever replace Ron Santo in our hearts; the Pat & Ron Show was something special that can never be duplicated. All the best to Keith Moreland in his new role.
