Dave Otto & Keith Moreland Finalists to Replace Ron Santo in WGN Cubs Radio Booth Alongside Pat Hughes — Wrigley Field 2/1/11

Posted on 01 February 2011 by Lou

WGN Radio has announced that Dave Otto and Keith Moreland are the 2 finalists to replace Cubs legend Ron Santo in the radio booth along side Pat Hughes for all Cubs games.  Both Otto and Moreland are former Cubs players.

Otto has already played a role with WGN Radio over the last few seasons, filling in for Santo when he has not traveled with the team on road trips or when he has had to miss games because of illness.

Moreland has subbed for Bob Brenly on TV broadcasts when he has gone on vacation.

My pick is Otto.  I think he adds a great touch on the radio in broadcasts to which I have already listened in the past.  He has a lot of good insight and as a former pitcher, he offers a unique way of looking at the game.
