SOUTH BEND, IN -The South Bend Cubs have renewed their partnership with Weigel Broadcasting Co. and will broadcast 27 regular season home games on WMYS, My Michiana. This is the fifth consecutive season South Bend Cubs baseball has been available on broadcast television. 

"As baseball continues to grow in the world of social media and television, it's very important to have a top-quality broadcast production for our team," South Bend Cubs President Joe Hart said. "It is unique for a Single-A baseball team to have so many games available on TV. We are extremely appreciative of Aaron Ramey and the Weigel Broadcasting staff for their great coverage of the South Bend Cubs."

"We are privileged to bring South Bend Cubs baseball to television for the Michiana community again this year," General Manager of WBND/ABC 57, WCWW/CW 25 and WMYS/My Michiana Aaron Ramey said. "The improvements at Four Winds Field and the excitement surrounding the Cubs have been a great influencer in downtown South Bend. The best place to watch a South Bend Cubs game is in the stadium. The second-best place is on My Michiana."
