WSCR May Switch Mike North Off Mornings

CBS Sports WSCR-A (THE SCORE)/CHICAGO morning host MIKE NORTH believes people make too much of his seven-figure salary, writes TODAY's CHICAGO TRIBUNE. He once chided a reporter for his frequent mentions of NORTH's $1.5 million annual take. But with his contract at WSCR-A set to expire JULY 1st and rumors swirling that he could lose his morning gig, money remains a huge topic on his show.
But there's another potential ego-shrinking issue at play. Would NORTH, a SCORE founding father, accept a move to middays? Or a role as a designated interviewer, with his conversations dropped into shows throughout the day?
SCORE insiders, mindful of recent ratings, have been buzzing about a possible lineup shift that would have midday hosts MIKE MULLIGAN and BRIAN HANLEY taking over NORTH's slot.
