670 The Score Heads To Spring Training

“Following the reality TV model, The Score will post videos and pictures from inside the house, but will hopefully avoid the drama normally portrayed by that genre of programming.”

Almost exactly one year after 670 The Score overhauled their lineup, two/thirds of the station’s weekday schedule are sharing a house in Arizona.   “The Score House” as it’s been dubbed, is serving as the home for 670’s midday and afternoon shows while the station is on remote to cover Chicago Cubs Spring Training.  

This week, eight people from The Score are bunkering down in Arizona.  Dan Bernstein and Connor McKnight from middays along with afternoon hosts Dan McNeil and Danny Parkins, producers Jay Zawaski, Nick Shepkowski and Brian Gertsch and lastly program director Mitch Rosen will all be under one roof.

“At the end of the week this could be epic radio,” Rosen told The Daily Herald’s Robert Feder, also adding, “Pray for me.”

A house isn’t the traditional choice for a radio station on remote, but with hotel costs seeming unnecessarily expensive, The Score House became an opportunity to bond and create added content.  Following the reality TV model, The Score will post videos and pictures from inside the house, but will hopefully avoid the drama normally portrayed by that genre of programming.

Being that 670’s morning show, would have to be on-air at 4am from Arizona due to the time difference, it didn’t make sense for Mike Mulligan and David Haugh to be in the house all week.  Mully and Haugh will instead fly out Wednesday afternoon to broadcast their show from Spring Training on Thursday, but will spend the night at a nearby hotel.  

The Score team came prepared for Spring Training with their baseball gloves and the house is fully loaded with a swimming pool and game room, fans can follow behind the scenes content by clicking here.
