(WSCR) Chicago Bears tight end Martellus Bennett has been the talk of Chicago with his performance on the field along with his colorful personality. In what promises to be must-hear radio, Bennett will now bring his enticing persona to WSCR-670 The Score for his only regularly scheduled radio appearances during the football season.
Listeners will be able to interact with Bennett when he appears on the Boers and Bernstein Show Mondays at 5PM. On weeks the Bears play on a Monday or Thursday, Bennett will join the afternoon duo the day after the game. In addition, fans will be able to meet the star in person as Bennett will join the Miller Lite Top Draft Show with host Laurence Holmes at various locations across the Chicago area starting Tuesday, October 1st .
Listeners of Chicago’s dominant sports talk radio station can expect original content as Bennett will serve as creative director of his segments, thus providing a unique forum for his thoughts on football.
“We are thrilled to welcome Martellus to our terrific roster of football experts at The Score,” noted WSCR Program Director Mitch Rosen. “Given his role as creative director of his segments, matched by his unpredictable personality, we know his appearances will be immensely entertaining. Fans will have many opportunities to interact with Martellus and will get to know what he thinks about the Bears, the NFL and anything else both on and off the field.”
Bennett will have a strong presence across The Score’s vast digital assets including CBSChicago.com and multiple social media platforms.
“Martellus is a warrior on the football field and committed to winning a championship with the Bears. Off the field, he’s an intelligent, thoughtful, and creative talent,” says Andrew Stroth, Chicago-based attorney who negotiated the partnership for Bennett. “The Score is the perfect fit for the Martellus to share his views with Chicago sports fans.”
On the field, Bennett has emerged as a top weapon for the Bears. He has ten receptions for 125 yards, including three touchdowns capped off by the game winning score in the final seconds of last Sunday’s 31-30 comeback against the Minnesota Vikings.
