Mike North Back on the Air in Chicago

Longtime Score talker Mike North has been off the air in Chicago for a few years now, but that will be changing in a few weeks. He has joined fellow Ex-Score host Dan McNeil on classic rock WDRV. Unlike Danny Mac, who co-hosts the morning show, North will be doing a Bears show. Radio Online has the details...

The three-hour program immediately following Bears games on Sundays will debut on September 13, after the Bears opener against Green Bay.

Senior VP/Programming Greg Solk told staff, "As The Drive continues our endeavor to provide the best local and relevant content to audiences. We believe there is a void on Sunday afternoons for post-game Bears talk on the FM dial. I'm proud to announce today the addition of a brand new Sunday afternoon, 3pm-6pm, show on The Drive hosted by the one and only Mike North. Mike will give Chicago a no-holds-barred wrap-up show after every Bears game."

North commented, "It's gonna be great to be back on the air in Chicago once again talking Bears! I'm psyched to be back with the listeners and on 97.1 FM The Drive. It's a perfect station for me, with a massive male listenership. Chicago, get ready for the truth about the Bears!"
