CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago Cubs broadcaster Keith Moreland is leaving the job to spend more time with family.
The Cubs made the announcement on Wednesday. Moreland took the WGN-AM job in February 2011, signing a three-year deal to replace the late Cubs Hall of Famer Ron Santo. Moreland is a former Chicago Cubs outfielder, playing with the team from 1982 to 1987. Moreland worked with Cubs play-by-play announcer Pat Hughes in the broadcast booth.
Moreland says in a note to WGN staff that he's decided that he wants ''to spend more time at home in Texas.'' Before he worked for the Cubs, Moreland was a broadcaster for University of Texas baseball and football.
