When PD BILL WHITE exited TRIBUNE Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO on TUESDAY (NET NEWS 6/4), it left an opening at one of AMERICA's leading News outlets. CIT-TOWN media writer ROBERT FEDER reports on his FACEBOOK page that CBS RADIO Sports WSCR-A (670 THE SCORE)/CHICAGO PD MITCH ROSEN was offered the gig.
FEDER writes ROSEN declined an offer to join WGN as PD. "Rosen, 46, confirmed WEDNESDAY he's agreed to continue as PD of CBS RADIO Sports/Talk WSCR, a position he has held since 2005."
"I was flattered by the interest at WGN, and very grateful that my mentor, JIMMY DECASTRO, really wanted me," ROSEN told FEDER. "But at the end of the day, I'm grateful for the team we have here, and I continue to grow this brand that is 21-plus years old. I love what I do. I love working at THE SCORE. I love the team we've put together here. The success we've had as a team has been outstanding. I couldn't walk away from that right now. It was the hardest decision of my career. Not many times in our career do we have a choice. I had a choice. I chose to stay at a great radio station."
