Julie DiCaro

Julie DiCaro is a weekend host, update anchor for 670 The Score and a columnist for CBSChicago.com.

She studied journalism and French at Indiana University before getting her JD at DePaul’s College of Law. After 15 years of slogging away in the trenches of criminal and family court she escaped into the world of her first love, giving her opinions on Chicago sports to a captive audience. A Cubs blogger since 2007, Julie has written for such outlets as Deadspin, Red Eye and Huffington Post. Don’t try to make her feel bad about her love for soccer or professional wrestling, because it won’t work. Oh yeah, and she really hates red peppers. You can follow her on Twitter @Julie DiCaro.
