New Lineup For The Score In Chicago

3

With the retirement of longtime host Terry Boers, CBS Radio Chicago’s 670-AM The Score is launching a new lineup Tuesday, January 17. Midday host Jason Goff (right) will move to afternoons, joining Dan Bernstein, and teaming up with midday host Matt Spiegel will be Danny Parkins.

WSCR PD Mitch Rosen said, “The retirement of beloved ‘Score original’ Terry Boers after 25 years, coupled with the exciting achievements of the station over the last year, led us straight to Jason as the perfect match with Dan in afternoons. As a hometown native, Danny brings passion to middays, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to hear what he and Matt create together for our loyal listeners.”

Goff originally joined 670 The Score in 2000 as a producer on The Boers and Bernstein Show in 2007. Goff was previously the evening host of CBS Radio Atlanta’s 92.9 The Game, and hosted SiriusXM NBA Radio’s midday Off the Dribble show.

Parkins joins 670 The Score from 610 Sports Radio in Kansas City where his afternoon show The Drive has been the highest-rated sports show in Kansas City for the last two years. Prior to his time in Kansas City, Parkins hosted sports radio programs in Syracuse, NY. He is a graduate of the prestigious S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, and graduated locally from New Trier High School.

Senior Vice President and Market Manager, CBS RADIO Chicago, Tim Pohlman, added, “Following the success The Score has seen in the past year sharing the historic Cubs Championship with all of Chicago, and celebrating 25 years of delivering the city’s best sports coverage, I’m thrilled to see the pairing of Jason Goff and Dan Bernstein and to welcome the talented Danny Parkins to our already stellar lineup of Score hosts.”

  1. You obviously didn’t listen when Matt had his chance 5-7 Years ago. He was more argumentative than Dan (i like Dan by the way), and they pulled him back in. He blew it (Or at least that what i got from it). Jason is doing a great job

  2. I do believe Jason has proven you to be wrong. He can hold more than his own against Bernstein and actually fires back quite a few intelligent volleys. Your comment regarding “Bernstein’s much higher intelligence” is a crock of s**t (sorry) and Jason is in no way a B or C level personality. I think you should take time to listen a little more. They appear to be having a great time together as well. Jason actually makes Dan more palatable. (palatable is the best I could do. I’m sure Dan can whip out some obscure synonym for it)

  3. Jason Goff works hard, shows up well-prepared, and has paid his dues. But the thing is, what made Boers and Bernstein a unique show was the pair’s chemistry, quirky personalities and high degree of intelligence. With all due respect to Goff, he is a B- or C-level personality, and in a major market like Chicago, that just won’t cut it. Dan Bernstein will overpower him with his much higher intelligence, sharper wit and even his greater depth of sports knowledge; and the strain of Bernstein having to accommodate a lesser talent will soon become obvious. Boers could hold his own against Bernstein; Goff simply can’t. Yes, I realize Goff used to produce the B & B show, but unlike Matt Abbatacola, Goff just can’t bounce off of Bernstein in a way that engages listeners. Abbatacola, Barry Rozner, Laurence Holmes or Chris Rongey would have been much better matches for Bernstein; better yet, I wish Program Director Mitch Rosen would have brought in a young, fresh talent that Chicago was not familiar with; it might have been fun to listen to the chemistry develop (or not) between that person and Bernstein. The new midday guy from KC, Danny Parkins, would have been a better fit with Bernstein in my opinion. Nothing personal against the competent but oh-so-bland Goff, but this just isn’t going to work.
