The new program will utilize a new graphics look, along with an enhanced local focus on the top sports stories of the day when it makes its August debut. Chicago Sports Tonight will feature FOX Sports Net’s on-air team of Eric Goodman, Damon Andrews, Gail Fischer, Megan Mawicke, Mitch Robinson and Eric Collins, plus – FSN’s line-up of top-notch analysts featuring Dave Otto, Norm Van Lier and Troy Murray.
