Look for Sun-Times sports writer Russell Dorsey to join Stadium, the multi-platform sports network owned by Silver Chalice and Sinclair Broadcast Group and headquartered at United Center. Without confirming his new job, Dorsey announced Tuesday he was leaving the Sun-Times at the end of January after 18 months as Chicago Cubs beat writer. “Russ has done an excellent job for us covering all things Cubs, one of the more challenging beats to tackle in Chicago sports,” Steve Warmbir, interim editor-in-chief of the Sun-Times, wrote in an email to staff. “He’s had a great work ethic and has been a fantastic colleague.” Dorsey, who grew up in the south suburbs and began as an intern at the Daily Herald, previously covered the Cubs, White Sox and Milwaukee Brewers for Feder.
