List of Chicago White Sox broadcasters
In 1943 and earlier, several stations carried the White Sox simultaneously. The team allowed as many stations as desired to carry their games, although probably not all stations carried all games, especially road games. For example, in 1931, Sox games aired on WIBO, WMAQ, WGN, WENR, and WCFL. Announcers for stations other than WGN and WMAQ are unknown.
Exclusive radio rights weren't awarded by the Sox until 1944.
- WMAQ 670 kHz (1924-34)
- Hal Totten (1926-34)
- WGN 720 kHz (1927-43)
- WCFL 970 kHz (1929-31, 1935-40)
- WIBO 560 kHz (1930-32)
- WENR 870 kHz (1931)

- WCFL 1000 kHz (1941-43)

Station frequencies and call letters are accurate for the years of their White Sox broadcasts. Due to the North American Radio Broadcasting Agreement that took effect on March 29, 1941, WCFL moved from 970 to 1000 kHz and WJJD moved from 1130 to 1160. Most American and Canadian stations above 730 kHz changed frequencies at the same time.
