Certainly not with WGN radio, but I don't believe it's out of the realm of possibility with the TV side. There's just too much money to be made off of these new TV deals. If it doesn't happen in 2014, I could see it happen once their contract with CSN Chicago is up in 2019.

However, the Yankees and Mets have their own networks and still broadcast a number of games on local stations (especially the Mets on WPIX), so I guess there's precedent. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out.
