DAN MCNEIL returned to CBS RADIO Sports WSCR-A (670 THE SCORE)/CHICAGO FRIDAY (12/20) at Noon. It was his first time behind the mic after having to take another personal leave of absence to address some personal issues.
CHICAGORADIOANDMEDIA.COM reports MCNEIL, "quickly addressed the 'elephant in the room,' referring to himself as 'drunky boy' and mentioning his numerous times away from the air -- be they from rehab trips, depression problems, suspensions, or contract troubles. He quickly called himself an addict. According to MCNEIL, he broke away from his sobriety just a few months from exiting his 2012 trip to rehab. In AUGUST 2012, he started doing marijuana and Norco pain medications again -- first slowly and then more often. The drugs worsened his depression issues."
