Dan Bernstein is the co-host of the “Bernstein and Goff Show” on 670 The Score on weekdays from 1-6 p.m., along with partner Jason Goff. Prior to the launch of that show in January 2017, Bernstein was the co-host of the “Boers and Bernstein Show” alongside Terry Boers since 1999.

Named “Best Sports Talker” by Chicago Magazine, he’s the city’s only three-category winner of the Achievement in Radio Award (Best Reporter, Best Play-by-Play and Best Talk Show).
His play-by-play experience includes five years calling DePaul basketball and both radio and TV work for the Arena Football League’s Chicago Rush. He has appeared as a guest on MSNBC, CNN and other national television networks.
Before joining WSCR, Bernstein broadcast games for minor-league affiliates of the Kansas City Royals and Chicago Cubs, as well as the Raleigh Bullfrogs of the Global Basketball Association and the Rockford Lightning of the Continental Basketball Association.
Bernstein interned in the news department at WBBM-TV in Chicago and in the sports department of WTVD-TV in Raleigh/Durham, N.C.
He’s a Deerfield native and an honors graduate of Duke University, where he did four years of play-by-play for basketball and football and anchored “Duke SportsCenter” on Cable 13 TV.
He lives on the northwest side of Chicago with his wife and two children and is actively involved in fundraising for such charities as Children’s Oncology Services, The Michael Rolfe Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, Blind Services Association and others.
