When NBC Sports Chicago carries the Bulls’ entire 82-game regular-season schedule of games, it will do so without stalwart Mark Schanowski as its pregame and postgame host.
There is no word yet on a successor.
Schanowski, 62, plans to remain a leading Bulls content contributor the channel’s many platforms, including NBCSportsChicago.com and its MyTeams app with “Bulls Talk” podcasts and TV specials.
"After nearly 30 years of covering Chicago sports and 35-plus years in the television news business, I will be taking a reduced role with NBC Sports Chicago going forward to be able to enjoy more time with family and friends,” Schanowski said in a statement.
I’ve really enjoyed Mark over the years. It’s a big loss. But, I hope he enjoys his semi-retirement!
