It might have come off as a stunt, but Matt Spiegel wants you to know there’s nothing insincere about it.
On Feb. 17, the Cubs’ Marquee Sports Network announced three fill-ins for play-by-play voice Jon Sciambi when he calls games for ESPN Radio. One of them was Cubs radio voice Pat Hughes, who will call five games on TV this season.
Naturally, pre- and postgame show host Zach Zaidman will fill in for Hughes on the Cubs’ flagship, 670 The Score. But who would fill in for Zaidman, who also calls the fifth inning to give Hughes a break?
