670 The Score's Joe Ostrowski talks shop, Cutler and more

670 The Score's Joe Ostrowski talks shop, Cutler and more
Joe Ostrowski is a Host/Executive Producer and Update Anchor at 670 The Score. Chicago’s original and still highest rated sports talk radio station. You can hear Ostrowski nights after White Sox baseball when he hosts the “Joe O. Show” often till midnight or 1 a.m. And then of course, it becomes “Grobber Time” after that. Ostrowski is definitely a guy you should talk Fantasy Football, over/unders and spreads with. He’s also a fantastic follow on Twitter (@Joe0670) as he enjoys Jay Cutler in '80s outfits pictures as much as I do. We're fellow countrymen too. (Banks is an Anglicized name, I'm 1/2 Half-Polish...I know you DOOOOON'T CAAAAARE) Let’s talk shop shall we...

670 The Score's Herb Lawrence talks Bears, Illini and more (exclusive)

670 The Score's Herb Lawrence talks Bears, Illini and more (exclusive)
Herb Lawrence is a Content/Sound Producer at 670AM The Score-Chicago. Or WSCR if you please. If you follow ratings and stuff, you know they're beating ESPN 1000 AM, or WMVP if you will, rather soundly right now. So as much as we call ESPN the Evil Empire, this is one center of the universe in which they are currently losing! Herb Lawrence also qualified for the Boers and Bernstein “Crap of the Week” on June 21st. I saw he tweeted that out, so he should be cool with me mentioning it here. You can follow Herb Lawrence on Twitter here. Opinions are his own, not that have of 670 The Score. Also, check out his Illinois Center for Broadcasting promo on YouTube...

Jen Patterson and Nick Boynton welcome their first child

Jen Patterson and Nick Boynton welcome their first child
Remember Jen Patterson? The former Comcast SportsNet Chicago and 670 The Score personality? She, along with husband and former Chicago Blackhawks player Nick Boynton, welcomed daughter their Harland Grace Boynton to the world three weeks ago on June 11th. Harland is Boynton’s third daughter; he has two children from a previous relationship. Jen Patterson achieved local fame a few years ago as “Jen-Jen the engine” on WSCR as a producer/sometimes on-air personality. She left 670 The Score for Comcast SportsNet Chicago where she covered high school sports and was an integral part of “Monsters in the Morning” with Mike North and Dan Jiggetts. Eventually, her relationship with Boynton surfaced and it (unofficially) got her fired from Comcast Sports Net Chicago in October 2010. Neither CSN Chicago nor Patterson ever confirmed that the relationship was the reason she was terminated; but the entire city believes it's the truth, so we’ll go with that. Here’s what Jen Patterson is doing today...

Media, keep covering Penn State Scandal! Boers and Bernstein Do!

Media, keep covering Penn State Scandal! Boers and Bernstein Do!
What went down at Penn State was the college football story of the year in 2011-12. Actually, it’s the most important sports story of the 2010s thus far. The Penn State child rape scandal is so much more than just a scandal and a cover-up; it’s all encompassing. And today, I find it bizarre that... Read more »

The Score's Dan Bernstein LIGHTS UP Steve Alford Sympathizer (audio)

The Score's Dan Bernstein LIGHTS UP Steve Alford Sympathizer (audio)
Yes, this headline includes ALL CAPS because that’s required for this exchange between WSCR midday co-host Dan Bernstein and an idiotic caller. Dan Bernstein goes off on a Steve Alford apologist and UCLA fan who called in recently. The language is all SFW but remember it’s “LOUD NOISES!!!” as Brick from fictional KVWN San Diego would say. Steve Alford was recently hired to UCLA from New Mexico. However, he’s most notorious for what went on during his regime in Iowa City. During his time leading the Iowa Hawkeyes, Coach Steve Alford (@UCLACoachAlford) was basically a sympathizer to committing sexual assault. Actually, he was more than that- he advocated the character of a sexual assault recidivist. Alford was also a very powerful enemy to a sexual assault victim...

670 The Score's Mike Mulligan: Exclusive Interview

670 The Score's Mike Mulligan: Exclusive Interview
WSCR morning host Mike Mulligan has been on the Chicago sports media scene since his days answering phones at the Sun-Times in 1982. Legendary High School sports editor Taylor Bell trained Mulligan as both a reporter and a writer and assigned him his first story. A former paperboy who delivered the Sun-Times and Tribune in the morning and the Daily News and Chicago Today in the afternoon, Mulligan worked every job imaginable in the Sun-Times Sports department. Eventually, he became the full-time beat writer covering the Chicago Bulls during their first three championships with Michael Jordan. Mulligan moved to the Bears beat and eventually became the NFL columnist a few years later. He still covers football for the Chicago Tribune. Mulligan’s radio stops have included stints at Sporting News Radio, ESPN and, of course, WSCR-670 The Score where he has teamed with fellow sportswriter Brian Hanley since 2005. An award-winning journalist who has covered six NBA Finals, 16 Super Bowls and one World Cup Final, he also received a local Emmy for his television commentary on Fox Kickoff Sunday and worked the final season as a panelist on the legendary “Sportswriters on TV,’’ show. (CBS Chicago) I caught up to Mulligan at last week’s Ring Lardner awards, whose honorees included ABC-7′s Mark Giangreco. The Lardner awards are “the Heisman trophy for journalists,” as Giangreco put it. You can follow the Mully and Hanley show on Twitter here...

Hawk Harrelson calls Boers and Bernstein "gutless" "Mariotti wannabes" On Air

Hawk Harrelson calls Boers and Bernstein "gutless" "Mariotti wannabes" On Air
Whenever I consume a Chicago White Sox broadcast it’s radio only. Hawk Harrelson is the reason why. Steve Stone is a MLB genius, but Harrelson is not even remotely close to being tolerable. I elaborate on this point in further detail here. WSCR 670 The Score midday co-hosts Terry Boers and Dan Bernstein are perhaps the most polarizing figures in Chicago sports media. Lots of people love ‘em, lots of people dislike them. It seems we have a war of words going on: Boers and Bernstein vs. Hawk Harrelson...

WSCR 670 New Home for Fighting Illini Sports

WSCR 670 New Home for Fighting Illini Sports
The logo of WSCR 670 The Score is blue and orange for a reason. All CBS owned radio stations adopt the colors of their local NFL team for the station logos. Obviously, WSCR got it’s colors from the Chicago Bears. Papa Bear Halas brought the colors with him to the Bears from the University of Illinois. And now with the Illini joining forces with WSCR, it all comes full circle. Illini A.D. Mike Thomas announced today WSCR 670 The Score will be the newest radio affiliate on the statewide Illini Sports Network. WSCR will be the home for Illini sports in Chicago...

WSCR's Boers and Bernstein unveil new show feature

WSCR's Boers and Bernstein unveil new show feature
In the words of the CBS radio press release itself: "For over 13 years, The Boers and Bernstein Show has polluted Chicago radio with negativity and hatred. Each year, this hatred is displayed in its full glory with The Tournament of Bad." It's true, the Tournament of Bad really is the most wonderful time of the year. Past competitors in the TOB have included: no ketchup on hot dog militants, Chicago pot holes, Illinois governors, Snooki's face, Sarah Palin, boneless skinless chicken breast, runners that run in place at stoplights, pageant moms, joint email accounts, taking pictures of your food, Guy Fieri, sports stadium marriage proposals...well you get the idea. But now comes a respite from all the cynicism and negativity...
