The Chicago Wolves and Fox 32 Chicago are pleased to announce My50 Chicago (WPWR-TV) will broadcast 30 Wolves regular-season games during the 2021-22 American Hockey League season.
The Wolves’ partnership with WPWR-TV marks the fifth straight full season that Wolves games have been a staple on My50 Chicago’s schedule.
“WPWR-TV ‘My50’ is excited to again be the exclusive home for all Chicago Wolves televised games,” said Dennis Welsh, WFLD-TV/WPWR-TV Senior Vice President and General Manager. “We are thrilled to bring Chicagoland the excitement of live Wolves action with 30 free over-the-air games throughout the 21-22 season. We look forward to the return of Wolves Hockey and our continued partnership with this tremendous organization.”
“We’re thrilled to be back on My50 for the upcoming season,” said Jon Sata, Wolves President of Business Operations. “Our coaching staff and general manager Wendell Young have high expectations this year, so it’s wonderful that fans will have consistent access to our locally televised games. FOX TV Chicago has been a tremendous partner over the years, which makes us especially proud to again call My50 the home of the Wolves.”
My50 Chicago’s coverage starts on Saturday, Oct. 16, when the Wolves host the Rockford IceHogs at Allstate Arena for their 28th season opener. Play-by-play announcer Jason Shaver and color analyst Bill Gardner will be in the booth for their 14th year as the Wolves’ broadcast team.
Shaver and Gardner will be on the call for 29 more home games as Wolves head coach Ryan Warsofsky and his prospect-laden team shoot for the organization’s fifth Central Division title in the last six seasons.
Not only can local hockey fans find WPWR-TV over the air in HD on Channel 50, the games are carried via DirecTV and Dish Network and Comcast Xfinity (Ch. 8 for SD; Ch. 184 for HD), AT&T U-Verse (Ch. 8 for SD, Ch. 1008 for HD) and WOW! (Ch. 8 for SD; Ch. 204 for HD).
