Mike North Does Some Counter-Programming
July 10, 2008 at 5:15 AM (PT)
Leave it to MIKE NORTH to try to steal the thunder from his former employer, writes ROBERT FEDER in TODAY's CHICAGO SUN TIMES. In an audacious example of counter-programming, NORTH will host his first -- and so far only -- Internet show from 11a-1p FRIDAY via his website at northtonorth.com.
That's exactly the same two-hour time slot for the CBS RADIO morning stars' roundtable on sports/talk WSCR-A/CHICAGO.
THE SCORE's event will bring together EDDIE VOLKMAN, JOE BOHANNON, RAMBLIN' RAY STEVENS, PAT CASSIDY, LIN BREHMER, STEVE DAHL and DAN BERNSTEIN. They're supposedly going to talk about sports.
NORTH, who's been off the air since JUNE 20th and lamented that he never got to say goodbye after more than 16 years on THE SCORE, said his Webcast also will feature "two monster surprise guests." The show will take place from the TalkZone.com studio in north suburban CHICAGO.
