Laurence Holmes joined 670 The Score in 1998 as a part-time producer after interning for Jeff Joniak and producing “The Sports Huddle” at WMAQ radio.
Through five years of producing he was named Executive Producer of “The Les Grobstein Show”, “The Tommy Williams Show”, “McNeil & Jiggetts” and “Murph & Fred”.
In 2002, Holmes picked up an A.I.R. award for both “commerical production” and “Talk Show production.”
While working as a producer, Holmes served as a weekend and fill-in host. He teamed up with Jonathan Hood to host “Wrestlemaniacs” and Dan Zampillo to host “Me & Z”. Soon, his solo show followed.
In 2003, Holmes was promoted to beat reporter, assigned to the Bears, which he covered from 2003-2008 on a daily basis.
A 1997 Graduate of DePaul University, Holmes joined Zach Zaidman in 2006 as the play-by-play tandem for 670 The Score’s broadcast of Blue Demons games, which he did for six seasons. In 2007, Holmes was named to DePaul’s prestigious “14 Under 40″ Alumni list.
In 2008, Holmes joined Dan Hampton to host the mid-day show and the Score’s Bears pre-game coverage.
In 2009, Holmes returned to hosting his night time solo show. In addition to hosting his own show, he is a frequent guest host for the Score’s mid-day and afternoon shows. Along with hosting, Holmes still covers the Bears and writes his weekly “24-Blog” for 670TheScore.com.
Laurence resides in Chicago and is a proud graduate of Homewood-Flossmoor High School, where he had his first talk show when he was 16.

It’s possible that Urlacher will be ready to go in 25 days. He’s a tough guy, fast healer and committed to the rehab process, but it might be better to hold him back.
Mystery solved. Brian Urlacher had arthroscopic surgery Tuesday morning on his left knee.
When the Bears take on the Broncos Thursday night at Soldier Field, you won’t see their cards.
With Urlahcer missing so much time, it lends credence to the idea that the MCL injury suffered against the Vikings was more serious than most believed.
In the first few days of padded practices, first-round draft pick Shea McClellin has had a hard time.
More teams are neutralizing Devin Hester by kicking high to him. Laurence Holmes breaks down the Bears’ strategy to counter “sky balls.”
Anthony Adams, Matt Bowen, Alex Brown, Dez Clark and Hunter Hillenmeyer give you the good, the bad and the ugly from their training camp experience.
I thought I’d share some tips with you on surviving camp and offer up suggestions to increase your enjoyment of the experience.
There weren’t any real epiphanies that came out of day 2 of Bears Mini-Camp, but there was some interesting stuff. Here’s what I saw, heard and was told at Halas Hall on Wednesday.
As Lovie Smith says, mini-camp is the end of the Bears offseason. It’s three days where the foundation is laid and the scene is set for Bourbonnais.
Considering the amount of quality players that were available at a position of need for the Bears, it would’ve been pretty hard for Phil Emery to make a selection that left fans scratching their heads, but somehow he did it.
It’s a perfect fit for a horse rescue group, and a young woman who welcomes some emotional support. She lost her father and brother, and gained a steadfast friend.
They can’t count on that again. There are countless storylines for this game, including whether the offense can put points on the board. Along with that here’s what I think is interesting.
I’m finding it very difficult to make a persuasive argument on why Bears fans should be worried about Kansas City. Strangely, that worries me.
No one knew what to expect from Caleb Hanie. Not you. Not me. Not even the Bears coaching staff.
By Laurence Holmes- (WSCR) This week starts a strange stretch of games for the Bears. In the next four weeks, they will play every team in the AFC West. It leaves the Bears with some opportunities [...]
It’s been brewing since the Monday night game last month. In fact, the kindling for this fire was sparked with Calvin Johnson’s non-catch in the opener last year. The Bears and Lions don’t like each other and Sunday it boiled over.
Regular season games don’t get much bigger than this one.
The Bears mixed coverages and looks to confuse Michael Vick, but the biggest change was how physical the cornerbacks were allowed to be.
Another big game for the Bears as they travel to take on Philadelphia tonight. If the Bears can find a way to win, they put themselves in a great spot to continue the playoff race. A loss with a rested Detroit coming in next week makes things more difficult. Here are the matchups I’m looking at:
