Hawks extend deals for Wiedeman, Murray

The Chicago Blackhawks extended the contracts of radio broadcasters John Wiedeman and Troy Murray through the 2014-15 season.

Next season will be the sixth together for Wiedeman and Murray on WGN-AM 720. They were honored earlier this summer by the Illinois Broadcasters Association as the top sports play-by-play team.

"We’re fortunate to have one of the premier broadcast tandems in all of professional sports delivering Blackhawks hockey to our fans," Blackhawks President/CEO John McDonough said in a statement. "All season long John and Troy paint a vivid picture of our great game for listeners throughout the Midwest on WGN Radio 720, and around the world on wgnradio.com."
