: can Jesse Jackson help Danny Boy?!

: Two years after he returned to sports/talk WSCR-AM (670) as its star midday personality, Dan McNeil is off the air and without a contract at the CBS Radio
station whose format he helped launch in 1992.

: McNeil, 47, told listeners he’d be taking today off — although he didn’t say it was because his contract expired Tuesday. Filling in for him alongside Matt
Spiegel from 9am to 1pm will be Daily Herald sports columnist and Score weekend host Barry Rozner.

: While negotiations are under way on a renewal, there’s no word on how close both sides are to reaching an agreement. Rod Zimmerman, senior vice president and
market manager of CBS Radio Chicago, has been playing hardball in contract talks with other key on-air employees, according to industry sources. McNeil’s agent,
Bryan Harlan, did not return calls late Tuesday.
