Media Achievement Award

Mitch Rosen presides over the daily operations of WSCR 670AM, The Score Radio Network. Born in the Chicago area, Rosen got his start in the radio business working at WGN Radio in 1988. Rosen arrived at the Score in 2005. January 2, 1992, turned out to be a major day in history, both for Chicago sports and local media when a new all-sports radio station came on the air. Nearly three decades later, WSCR Radio, better known as “The Score,” has emerged as the destination for fans in good times and bad. The foundation of the Score’s early success came with the station’s first hosts including Tom Shaer, Mike North, Dan Jiggetts, Dan McNeil, Brian Hanley, Mike Murphy, and Terry Boers. Their colorful personalities cultivated and enticed listeners. That formula worked in 1992 and still works today with the latest generation of hosts and reporters who talk sports while having plenty of fun along the way. Utilizing its new powerful frequency at 670AM, during the decade of the 2000s, the Score resumed a dominance it enjoyed over its sports radio competitors. Coinciding with its success, the Score obtained play-by-play rights and through the years, the Blackhawks, White Sox, and numerous college teams have all called the Score home. Then on a memorable November 2016 night, in just its first year airing Chicago Cubs baseball, fans tuned to the Score for the local call when the North Siders won their first World Series title since 1908. Today, the Score is not only the home to the Cubs, but the station is about to embark on its first full season of being the play-by-play home to the Chicago Bulls. In November 2017, Entercom Communications took over ownership of the Score, following a merger with CBS Radio. While technology has evolved, the station’s successful formula of providing listeners insight on sports and maybe getting a laugh or two along the way, has remained in place. That’s why there continues to be one undisputed king of Chicago sports talk and that is the Score, SportsRadio 670.
