670 The Score is making big changes to their weekday lineup. During an announcement this morning on Mully and Hanley, PD Mitch Rosen visited the morning show to confirm the station’s plans.
Chicago sports radio veteran Dan McNeil returns to The Score to become part of the afternoon show. He’ll team up with Danny Parkins who previously co-hosted middays on the station. The two men have done a series of podcasts together and have known each other a long time. In fact, when Parkins broke into the business, he learned the business by interning for McNeil.
With Parkins ascending to afternoons, The Score will shake up middays by moving former afternoon drive host Dan Bernstein into the earlier timeslot. Bernstein will also receive a new partner, Connor McKnight. McKnight, won the station’s “Score Search” talent contest in 2009, and went on to become the White Sox pregame and postgame host on WLS-AM 890. The Sox though moved to WGN-AM 720 last month, opening the door for The Score to bring him home.
Due to the changes, Matt Spiegel and Jason Goff are unfortunately left out of the weekday picture. Spiegel will remain with the station in a lesser role, working weekends, filling in when weekday hosts are out, and writing columns for the website. Goff however has been let go.
Spiegel and Goff had solid history with The Score. Goff had produced and hosted shows on the station before teaming up with Bernstein in afternoons. Spiegel had been a fixture in middays, working most recently with Parkins and previously with McNeil and Patrick Mannelly. Spiegel and Goff also hosted middays together just 15 months ago.
