WSCR Makes New Midday & Afternoon Shows Official
Afternoon co-host Dan Bernstein moves to the 9am-1pm midday slot where he will be paired with Connor McKnight. McKnight returns to the WSCR from Cumulus Media News/Talk 890 WLS where he served as a Sports anchor and pre and post-game host for Chicago White Sox games. He also worked at Tribune’s 720 WGN and “87.7 The Game” WGWG-LP and at WSCR from 2009-2014 where he was a fill-in host and update anchor.
Dan McNeil returns to the weekday lineup in the 1-6pm afternoon slot where he will be paired with current midday co-host Danny Parkins. McNeil returned to WSCR for a weekend show in January after exiting the daily lineup in 2014. He spent 15 months as morning co-host at Hubbard Classic Rock “97.1 The Drive” WDRV in 2015/16 and has been hosting a podcast since.
Former midday co-host Matt Spiegel and afternoon co-host Jared Goff remain under contract, but new roles have not been determined.
670 The Score announced a new programming lineup Wednesday.
Dan McNeil will return to The Score, pairing with Danny Parkins to form the new afternoon show. The McNeil & Parkins Show will be live from 1-6 p.m. weekdays.
Middays will feature the return of another familiar face in Connor McKnight, who will pair with Dan Bernstein to form the Bernstein & McKnight Show from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. weekdays.
“Adding these two players makes our all-star team even better,” program director Mitch Rosen said of the additions of McNeil and McKnight to their respective slots. “The Score will continue be the Chicago’s leader in live, local Chicago sports talk. We continue to deliver great content to our listeners.”
The new shows begin Wednesday with Bernstein & McKnight hitting the airwaves at 9 a.m.
Mully and Hanley will remain in the 5-9 a.m. slot, while Laurence Holmes continues to hold down the 6-10 p.m. slot.
As part of the new look, 670 will bring back a staple of its history, with transition returning in the mornings with Mully and Hanley being joined by Bernstein and McKnight. Transition will continue as usual between the midday show and afternoon shows.
