only really listen for mully and hanley in the morning. If its some national news that is breaking its usually to 1000, but they seem to have more banter than news. Otherwise its 670 unless Lawrence Holmes is on.

The "award winning" Julie and Maggie show suggested the Cubs start trading draft picks, like the Bulls, to bring in new talent.

I never realized how bad both 1000 & 670 have gotten until I moved to Michigan and starting listening to 97.1 the ticket out of Detroit. They have much more entertaining hosts, especially Mike Valenti in the afternoon. Now I only stream 670 or 1000 when there is actually big news coming from one of our teams

Detroit must just be that good or something, because I've found the opposite here in Kansas City. I never appreciated Chicago sports radio more than when I moved here. It's like they just gave fans the microphones. Surface-level "analysis" and incredible homerism that makes all other sports radio hosts seem like beacons of objectivity.

Say what you will about Chicago sports radio guys and their annoyingness, but at least they're not afraid to criticize the teams when need be and give homer call-in fans some sobering doses of reality.

I used to like The Score when Laurence Holmes was an up and comer and did the Wed night Bears show. Then he got too big for his britches and started doing the Boers & Bernstein routine where you act like all of your callers are incompetent morons, talking down to people, and hanging up on callers you don't agree with. Now that seems to be the pervasive attitude with all of their hosts. Plus, they all gossip and waste most of the air time talking about stupid peripheral bullshit and not talking real SPORTS, despite that being the business they are in. Nowadays 670 takes a (WAY) back seat to 1000, no question. 670 seems to be trying to juggle the lineup and seeking a way to increase their market share. If I was them, they might want to bring in guys who can provide a detailed, critical SPORT SPECIFIC evaluation of teams, players, etc, not gossiping busy bodies that are worried about their twitter follows.

Just a quick update...here is 670's lineup for today...it is possibly the worst lineup in sports radio history:

5am - 10am: David Haugh with Laurence Holmes (subbing for Mully)
The first 10 minutes was Haugh and Holmes talking about how great each other was. Clicked off.

10am - 12pm: Bernstein & McKnight
Never really understood the purpose of this slot...its like for people who are taking a dump after breakfast to get ready for lunch. I figure they are paying Bernstein $350K/yr and are trying to get a minimal ROI on that deal.

12pm - 12:45pm: Laurence Holmes
Yep, 670 just couldn't exist without Holmes coming back for 45 minutes. Kind of shows how far Bernstein has fallen...couldn't have him go a 'grueling' 2 hours and 45 minutes, need that firm 2 hour cutoff.

12:45pm: Cubs pregame with Zach Zaidman
End with the most incompetent mealy-mouthed sports radio reporter in Chicago.

Apparently the big discussion with Haugh and Holmes is the new Top Gun movie

Legit every fucking show she would go off on male callers every time for being "sexist".

Then she'd yell all over you until she cut you off cause she got mad.

Sports radio is no place for womens rights activists. No one wants to listen to that shit, not even most women.

I like 670 and Bernstein in particular. The reason being is that I think idiots should be shamed on public airwaves so that they can perhaps have that "aha" moment and rethink their poor life education and news sources. And Sports radio is the ideal vehicle to call it the rampant sexism, since it seems to attract the derps who don't understand their sexist culturally biased upbringing.

I prefer ESPN 1000 now. I listen to them on Iheartradio since I am residing in Portland.

Used to love 670 but that was during their heyday with Terry Boers, Bernstein, North and Jiggetts.

Is Laurence Holmes still one of the main guys at 670 now? He used to be on lots when I last listened to that station, he has a boring voice and personality for radio... Zzzzzz

Thats why they have someone who screens callers. They don't get those same callers on espn 1000.

670 the score welcomes the idiot callers so they can publicly shame them. It's their shtick. Boers and Bernstein got famous off it, the rest of these

Took me about 1 day of listening to figure that one out. Literally just a bunch of old fucks trying to make alpha moves on the airwaves but would shit their pants if half the callers saw them in person.

I usually don't listen to 670 that much anymore, but hes from 12-2.

I know at one point he only did night programs and got pissed that they passed over him for dan parkins so they got into a little blue collar arguement on air.

Shit was hilarious, the token black guy and the skinny awkward jewish kid trying to act though. This was like two years ago.

You remember that kid you picked on in highschool, who got so mad at you that the only way he could pay you back is by joining the debate team and becoming really really good at talking?

Thats Danny Parkins, 670 the scores great new young talent.

If there ever was a face for radio, its this guy.
