Chicago's number one newscast is being bumped from the air this evening for Chicago Cubs baseball.
ABC's World News Tonight is also taking a backseat to baseball.
The Cubs are playing a day-night doubleheader against the Cincinnati Reds and it will bump the station's 5 and 6 p.m. local newscasts as well as “ABC World News Tonight” at 5:30 p.m.
WLS agreed to carry cubs games on Wednesdays during the day. But a rainout forced a double header this week and news ends up on the losing end.
Viewers who want to watch the news are being directed to the station’s digital and over-the-air Channel 7.2 or to its website.
Of course, WMAQ and WBBM are hoping that some of the station's viewers might switch over to them and like what they see.
