WSCR-AM (670 The Score) Chicago promotes Matt Spiegel to fulltime afternoon co-host. He'll rejoin co-host Danny Parkins on "Parkins and Spiegel," weekdays from 2-6pm CT. Spiegel has been a talk host, singer and columnist in Chicago since 1995, and has spent the last 27 years on and off with the station, including nine years in middays and most recently in part-time on-air roles.

From 2017 to 2018, Spiegel co-hosted the station's midday show with Parkins. He has also written for 670 The Score, The Daily Herald, USA Today, Baseball Weekly, The Sporting News and more, and hosted nationally on Sporting News Radio for a decade. He can also be seen as a contributor on the Cubs television station, Marquee Sports Network and has guested on a wide range of broadcast television.

"Matt has always been part of the Score team, but the fact that he is now reunited with Danny in Afternoons is great news most for fans," said 670 The Score Brand Manager Mitch Rosen. "Matt's popularity with our audience throughout all of our platforms is unwavering. The content he delivers on a daily basis is thoughtful, entertaining, opinionated sports talk, and data shows from the previous time together that listeners love this tandem of Danny and Matt."

"This is where I'm supposed to be: talking sports and more with this audience, creating a daily space for connection and companionship," added Spiegel. "There's nothing like it. Danny Parkins is a great host and a good friend. What he and I had found in terms of chemistry was special three years ago and I'm super excited to resume, move forward creatively, and see where we can go."
