Skip Parker has been with the Chicago Cubs and WGN Television since 1977. A member of the Cubs broadcast team, Skip has yet to appear in an actual game. "I'm what you would call a bench player." Skip explains: "Maybe during the course of a long season, Len or Bob might pull a vocal cord or something and I'm there in the wings."

Skip possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of all things Cubs, from uniform numbers to player trades. He is famous for his unique homerun calls.

Skip, or "el nueve" as many of the Cubs Latin players call him, appears frequently on The WGN Morning News as a fill-in sportscaster, correspondent, and baseball analyst.
