Jack Brickhouse

One of television's pioneers and the voice of the Cubs for four decades, Jack Brickhouse is a broadcasting legend. Brickhouse began his career at age 18, calling Bradley University basketball games for WMBD in Peoria, Illinois. In 1940, he joined WGN, where he would remain for over four decades.

Brickhouse called White Sox and Cubs games on both television and radio for WGN, and logged over 5,000 games in his career. Brickhouse also broadcasted Chicago Bears football for 24 seasons.

His always positive outlook and trademark "Hey Hey!" earned Brickhouse a place in the baseball Hall of Fame in 1983. Brickhouse is certainly one of the industry's most prolific and most successful men.
