670 The Score in Chicago is about to endure a two month stretch without one of its key personalities. Terry Boers, who hosts afternoon drive alongside Dan Bernstein told listeners on Wednesday that he will undergo surgery for an undisclosed ailment. He expects to be sidelined for close to two months.
“There’s a medical thing that has arisen that I have to take care of,” said Boers. “I’m disappointed in the fact that coming back will take so long.”
While Boers is away, The Score will utilize a number of fill-ins opposite Bernstein. Among those expected to gain air time include Barry Rozner, Jason Goff, Joe Cowley and Steve Rosenbloom. There’s also the possibility that Dan McNeil, who recently left The Drive, and previously hosted on the radio station, could be brought in but that’s still to be determined.
Boers has been a member of The Score since 1992, and has worked with Bernstein since 1999. The duo host weekdays from 1p-6p. There’s been speculation that his contract is expiring in the next few months, and retirement could be an option. Regardless, his time away is seen as temporary not permanent.
“We support Terry at this time as he goes through a medical procedure and extended recovery,” Mitch Rosen, operations director of The Score, said Wednesday. “He is a Score original and one of the founding fathers of The Score. When he returns, the Cubs may have clinched the division and the Sox could be back in first place!”
