Chicago sports radio station WSCR-AM 670 is turning to a pair of former Pro Bowl offensive linemen to replace its popular Bears postgame tandem of Doug Buffone and Ed O'Bradovich.
Olin Kreutz and James "Big Cat" Williams have been hired along with Hub Arkush for the postgame. Kreutz, a six-time Pro Bowl selection and four-time All-Pro, spent 13 of his 14 seasons in the NFL with the Bears from 1998 through 2010 and started 182 games for the franchise, trailing only Walter Payton.
Williams played for the Bears from 1991 to 2002 and was a Pro Bowl selection following the 2001 season. A converted defensive lineman, he started 143 games. The postgame show will run for two hours after each Bears game.
Buffone and O'Bradovich were a longtime pairing on the Score before Buffone's death April 20 at age 70.
O'Bradovich, 75, has switched to WGN-AM 720 where he will be paired with Hall of Famer Dan Hampton and former Bears player Glen Kozlowski on "The Hamp & O.B. Show with Glen Kozlowski."
Kreutz was teammates with a small number of current Bears players, including quarterback Jay Cutler and running back Matt Forte.
