Two midday shows are set to become one in Chicago. 670 The Score will pair Dan Bernstein and Laurence Holmes for a new show beginning June 20.

“I’ve been mostly a solo host for the last 15 years, and now I’m looking forward to working with Dan,” Holmes said in a press release. “We’ve got a great opportunity to challenge each other and have a lot of fun.”

Bernstein & Holmes will run weekdays from 10 am to 2 pm. NBC 5 sports anchor Leila Rahimi will continue to make appearances on the show every Wednesday.

“I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this show,” added Bernstein. “Laurence and I have worked closely together at The Score going back to our days on Belmont Avenue, and this new partnership promises to bring out the very best of what we do.”

The new midday show is just one of the changes coming to the 670 The Score lineup. Mully & Haugh gains an extra hour as well. The station’s morning show will now run from 6 am until 10 am.

“Our all-star Chicago lineup improves with Mully and Haugh extending later into the morning and two teammates who have worked together for 20-plus years finally sharing a microphone on a regular basis,” said Mitch Rosen, Operations Director and Brand Manager, 670 The Score. “We couldn’t be more excited for this updated lineup.”

    So both are failing miserably in ratings on their own with the hope putting two ratings losers together will suddenly bring in listeners? Maybe Mitch Rosen is the one who should get let go. These two together will be an ego fest like few others in town..both pompous, smartest ones in the rooms types. This will not work out. Producer Rick Camp is out because of this too? Bad mistake–no wonder Executive Jay Zawaski bailed out months ago. Sorry, Laurence will be babbling on about Super Heroes, being a Gamer and his home in Arizona, and Dan will have to interrupt him to tell another “my kid plays hockey” story, or his wifes wedding planning business and his latest designer gourmet meal. B-O-R-I-N-G..self serving, humble bragging outloud by both and now will have to talk over each other. Both poor active listeners, agenda pushers and so far left politically it should take the Chicago Progressive Talk Radio Stations call sign, the SCORES original 820AM. Dont believe me, go look up Dan Bernsteins Twitter timeline–disgustingly one sided Lefty Looney. That has infested all of Sports talk now at the SCORE. NO balanced or diversified views allowed there. Makes for BORING radio fellas.

MLB Radio

When it comes to advertiser’s attempting to reach an affluent and engaged audience, sports talk radio might have a whale on their hands. Major League Baseball play-by-play features an audience that has money and has no problems spending it.

In a recent MRI-Simmons study, data shows that consumers who listen to MLB broadcasts on the radio are the perfect audience for sports marketers. According to the analysis, done by Katz Radio Group, nearly two thirds (62%) of those surveyed consider themselves “super fans” of baseball. That number is 58% higher than the average.

Those “super fans” are willing to spend to support their team, as well. More than one third (34%) of the respondents recently purchased clothing/apparel that features their favorite team. Those fans are also far more willing to make the trip to see their team. The study found that 27% have visited a ballpark in the past year. That compares to only 19% of the average MLB fan base has made an apparel purchase to support their team while just 11% have gone to a game in person in that same time span.

The news continues getting better for advertisers. Continued analysis reveals that 66% of listeners are currently employed and have a median household income greater than $106,000.

Listeners to MLB games on the radio are also 34% more likely to place a sports bet and 106% more likely to be a participant in fantasy baseball.

Jeff Dean Show

Fans will no longer be able to tune into ESPN Tucson and hear Jeff Dean hosting his show. Friday morning was his last show, according to his Facebook and Twitter pages.

The Jeff Dean Show had been airing from 7-9a MT weekday mornings. Dean took to social media to relay the news and the reason behind him stepping away from the microphone. Dean said on Facebook:

“This morning I signed off from my radio show on ESPN Tucson for the final time. I have been devoting too much of my life and my time to working multiple jobs…the years of burning the candle at both ends has taken a dire toll on my health and for the first time in my life, I’m going to put myself and my livelihood first”

Dean went on to emphasize that he isn’t stepping away from ESPN Tucson, he’s just taking himself off the air. He also added that “gladly, I will be continuing my position as PA announcer of University of Arizona Football and Men’s basketball.”

Dean would also go onto Twitter to add even further context for his self-removal from the ESPN Tucson airwaves. He added, “It’s not a decision I arrived at hastily, as it’s been a 6 month mental grind to make the ultimate decision that had to be made, and I’m not particularly happy about it, but I have to put my health first, we all do, and make sure we’re around long enough to enjoy life”.

Dean had been ESPN Tucson’s morning host since November 2019.
