Chicago Cubs issue statement on passing of Jim Corno, Sr.


CHICAGO - The Chicago Cubs today issued the following statement on the passing of Jim Corno, Sr., president of Comcast SportsNet Chicago:

"Jim Corno, Sr. was a good friend to the Cubs. For 15 years, Jim was a true partner - launching two networks that brought more Cubs games to the Chicago market. Jim spent his life at the top of the cable business which, at times, can be a bruising endeavor. Jim always rose to the occasion and got further with affiliates, Leagues, sponsors and advertisers by using common sense, trust and delivering on his promises. He will be missed by many. Our thoughts and prayers are with Carolyn, Jim Jr., Christina, his extended family and many friends."
