Thursday night, Jonathan Hood and Chris Bleck will have Chicago Bulls fans covered as they host the NBA Draft Show special on WMVP ESPN 1000.  

Hood and Bleck will broadcast live from the Chicago Bulls practice facility, the Advocate Center beginning at 6pm Central Time.  The 2019 NBA Draft will take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, with the first pick set to take place shortly after Hood and Bleck begin their show.  The Bulls currently hold the 7th selection overall, but with Anthony Davis already being moved to the Lakers, trades and rumors should keep Hood and Bleck  busy during their ESPN 1000 NBA Draft Show.

The evening timeslot is familiar to Hood, who regularly hosts Under the Hood weeknights at 7pm on ESPN 1000.  The Chicago broadcaster also co-hosts Dickerson & Hood nationally on ESPN Radio every Saturday afternoon.  Chris Bleck is a longtime producer and fill-in host for WMVP.  Working together won’t be new for Hood and Bleck, having hosted a weekly Saturday show during the college football season on ESPN 1000, also partnering in the booth for the University of Illinois men’s basketball broadcasts on ESPN+.
