(670 The Score) 670 The Score is expanding its weekday lineup in a move that’s highlighted by Laurence Holmes shifting to the middle of the day.

Holmes will move from his evening slot to host his solo show from noon to 2 p.m. on weekdays. The midday show with Dan Bernstein and Connor McKnight will now run from 9 a.m. to noon, while the afternoon pairing of Dan McNeil and Danny Parkins will hold their show from 2-6 p.m. The new schedule will begin March 28.

The change will allow Holmes to have a more consistent voice on the station, as many of his evening shows were pre-empted by Cubs and Bulls broadcasts, as the Score is the radio home of both teams.

"I really feel what the expansion does it make The Score brand bigger and better while giving our consumers more options over the air and through all digital platforms," 670 The Score program director Mitch Rosen said.

Joe Ostrowski will replace Holmes in the evenings, taking over the 6 p.m. slot when there are full shows available. Ostrowski is the host of Early Odds on Saturdays at 8:30 a.m. and will bring his respected gambling perspective to his show in addition to discussing the sports hits of the day. Ostrowski will continue to anchor updates in the mornings when he doesn't host the evening prior.

Transition will continue to be held between all shows on 670 The Score. It will start around 11:50 a.m. before Holmes’ show and then around 1:50 p.m. before the afternoon crew takes over for Holmes, whose show will be produced by Tony Gill.

Holmes’ expanded role will also include a daily show for Radio.com that will be posted in podcast form around 2 p.m. daily. It will continue to highlight Holmes’ tremendous strength of interviewing various personalities. 

Julie DiCaro will continue to host from 10 p.m. to midnight on weeknights when play-by-play of games doesn’t interfere. Les Grobstein will continue on Score Overnights, which usually starts at midnight but sometimes earlier depending on 670’s play-by-play schedule.
