Blue October: WFLD to Debut Cubs Playoff Show

By Mark Joyella 

Fox-owned WFLD in Chicago will debut a Cubs playoff show, Blue October, this Friday at 6 p.m., right before the first game of the NLDS.

The show, hosted by sports anchor Lou Canellis and former Cubs centerfielder Bob Dernier, will be produced live from Wrigley Field during home games.

The show will feature WFLD reporters in and around Wrigley interviewing fans–and reporters traveling with the team for away games.

WFLD’s Good Day Chicago will also feature playoffs coverage, Fox says, with day-of and morning-after analysis from anchor Corey McPherrin and Cubs Radio analyst Ron Cooper.
