1. How do I call...

...Mike & Mike? 888.SAY.ESPN
...Waddle & Silvy? 312.332.ESPN
...Carmen, Jurko & Harry? 312.332.ESPN
...Chicago's Baseball Tonight? 312.332.ESPN
...the local shows? Call 312.332.ESPN
...GameNight? 888.SAY.ESPN
...GameDay? 888.SAY.ESPN


2. What time is the Sox/Bulls/Bears game today?

Simply go to the front page of ESPNChicago.com and look at the Chicago Sports Calendar. You can also use the tabs to look ahead at the schedule for later in the week.


3. What's the phone number for that sponsor?

Call 312.980.1000 with the name of the sponsor. If you don't know the name, you need to know what time and what day you heard the commercial. We cannot help you if you call us and say, "I heard a commercial for either mail-order chicken or commemorative plates sometime in 1997." We can help you if you say, "I heard a commercial for a DVD player at about 1:15 p.m. on Saturday afternoon", or "What's the phone number for ESPN: The Magazine?"


4. Who was that guest?

Again, as with sponsors, make note of the date and time and we can help you. Calling during the show the guest was on is ideal - if you heard someone talking about his new book on Carmen, Jurko & Harry during the 5 o'clock hour on Thursday, call 312-332-ESPN (3776) during the Afternoon Show and ask.


5. Why don't you get rid of Harry/Silvy/Golic/etc.?

Programming decisions, including specific shows and talent, are management decisions, usually based on ratings, research, and contractual commitments. Your comments on this topic are forwarded to the programming management staff for their information and consideration.


6. Where can I meet the guys?

Check the
