Rocky Wirtz statement on Jim Corno

Rocky Wirtz, Chairman of the Chicago Blackhawks, issued the following statement today on the passing of Jim Corno, President of Comcast SportsNet Chicago:

“It is with a heavy heart that today we said goodbye to one of our own, Jim Corno. Jim was not only a close friend and partner, but a savvy businessman who has long helped sustain the Blackhawks brand in Chicago. As a pioneer in cable sports broadcasting, Jim was very influential in the evolution of televised sports as we Chicagoans know it today. Jim’s legacy and passion to bring the games, stories and sports heroes in Chicago closer to the fans will live on for many years to come. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jim and the entire Corno family.”
