Prior to his time at The Score, Spiegel was been a nationally syndicated talk show host on Sporting News Radio Network, hosting The Matt Spiegel Show. The show, a platform for his immense knowledge of sports history as well as his uniquely entertaining perspective, was heard on more than 100 affiliates and on XM satellite radio.

Some of the highlights of his time at the Sporting News:

•Hosting pregame coverage for every NFL Sunday in 2007 and 2008
•Hosting the pregame and postgame coverage for Super Bowl XLII
•Broadcasting live from radio row all week in Phoenix for the Super Bowl between the Giants and Patriots in 2008

•Reporting live from the 2005 World Series at Chicago’s U.S. Cellular Field
•Writing and voicing The Year in Review, a much heralded annual feature
•Writing columns for Sporting News magazine and for http://www.sportingnews.com

For seven years before joining Sporting News Radio, Matt was a host, producer, and reporter for The Score. While in that position, he had a chance to cover Mike Ditka’s final days with the Bears and the entire second three-peat for Michael Jordan’s great Chicago Bulls teams.

Spiegel’s first job in sports media was as an intern for Major League Baseball Productions, where he worked on This Week in Baseball for Mel Allen’s final two years with the show. Spiegel fetched Mel coffee and lunch every Thursday for two summers. While matriculating at Emerson College in Boston, Spiegel won several sportscasting awards and went to Fenway Park 30 times a season.

Through the years, Spiegel has interviewed some of the biggest names in the business, including Joe Torre, Manny Ramirez, David Stern, Charles Barkley, Bob Costas, Wayne Gretzky and countless more. NFL stars and coaches Spiegel has interviewed live include Joe Montana, Deion Sanders, Ditka, Marshall Faulk, Warren Sapp, Andy Reid, Donovan McNabb, Jeff Fisher, Michael Irvin, Emmit Smith, Dick Vermeil, Eric Dickerson, Warren Moon and Tony Dungy.

Spiegel was the founding producer of Sound Opinions, a rock-and-roll talk show, hosted by Jim DeRogatis of the Sun-Times and Greg Kot of the Tribune. He produced their two years of television on WTTW-11 as well. Spiegel was also a DJ at WXRT-FM.

Spiegel is the founder and lead singer of Tributosaurus, one of Chicago’s hottest musical acts. His singing talents have been heard on numerous commercial jingles through the years, including for Feldco, several car dealerships and casinos.

Spiegel: Ventura Has A Rough Night as Detroit Looms

Matt Thornton was a disaster, well before Addison Reed finally arrived to allow the final blast. Thornton’s pitch selection was odd, and he’s been mediocre all season long.

There’s a difference between being excited to watch a shiny new thing arrive on the scene, and being irrationally, blindly optimistic about what the results will be.

The White Sox are rolling, in first place this morning, in part because of Peavy and that young intriguing bullpen, but also because of the wide awake big money hitters who slumbered for all of 2011.

Lin and Tebow have dominated professional sports media at times within the last six months and they share an obvious faith in God. And that’ll do it folks. Goodnight everybody.
