Rosen First Recipient Of Chernoff Award


Mitch Rosen has made Chicago’s 670 The Score one of the most successful Sports stations in the country. The lifelong Chicagoan has spent over 30 years in Windy City radio working with stations such as The Score, ESPN 1000, WGN, WXRT, and WLUP. He’s served as PD of The Score since 2005, and took on the added responsibility of programming 105.7 The Fan in Milwaukee in July 2019.

Rosin is the inaugural winner of Barrett Sports Media’s Mark Chernoff Award, named for the longtime architect of Sports giant WFAN in New York City.

“Mitch Rosen’s contributions to the Sports radio format are endless,” said Barrett Sports Media President Jason Barrett. “Spend two minutes with Mitch, and you learn quickly just how much he loves this business and appreciates his people. So much about success in our industry depends on strong leadership, creativity, vision, and adaptability, qualities that Mitch Rosen not only possesses, but puts into action on a daily basis.”

Chernoff himself said: “I am so proud to know Mitch Rosen, truly one of the best program directors in America. Mitch knows all the tricks — how to work with talent, sales, and management, plus deal with the ups and downs of the sports world, and come up with new ideas and solutions to address problems. I’m happy to call Mitch a friend as well as a co-worker, and look forward to seeing him in New York.”
