The Blackhawks, Bulls and White Sox have reached a new regional television contract with NBC Sports Chicago, reports Bruce Levine of WSCR-AM (670 The Score) in Chicago.

The three Chicago teams and NBC Sports Chicago will have equal ownership stake in the new agreement, which will begin in October 2019.

The Cubs, however, will split from NBC Sports Chicago after 2019 and begin operating their own regional sports network with Sinclair Broadcast Group called Marquis, according to Jeff Agrest of The Chicago Sun-Times.

NBC Sports Chicago, previously called Comcast SportsNet Chicago, has held broadcast rights to all four teams since 2004.
