Matt Spiegel is the co-host of the “Spiegel and Goff ShowShow” on middays from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on 670 The Score.

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
•Anchoring the network’s live coverage of baseball’s steroids hearings in Congress
•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: Zambrano’s Exit Is Fans’ Opportunity

After innumerable other moments in recent years when you’d think, and perhaps you openly hoped, an exit for the most confounding ballplayer in town was forthcoming, it finally goes down like this.

Spiegel: Cowley Stirs The Pot Again

The GM got off the wire, helped the manager load up the canon for one final shot down to Florida, and tried his best to take down the big top once and for all.

Spiegs read the entire grand jury testimony, just to check and make sure there was no misguided rage. There isn’t. The questions that demand answers are obvious there, and latest reports have the victim total rising to the 20’s.
