Dan Bernstein was radio silent on Wednesday, two days after posting a tasteless tweet about the Blackhawks and a local TV reporter.
The Score (670-AM) radio host took an untimely shot at the Blackhawks and Channel 7 reporter Cheryl Scott as the city launched into a Stanley Cup celebration on Monday night.
Bernstein was referencing unsubstantiated rumors. Several people came to Scott’s defense, including co-worker Jerry Taft.
Producer Matt Abbatacola filled in for Bernstein on Wednesday and said the 20-year Score veteran would be back on the air on Thursday with partner Terry Boers. The station offered no explanation about Bernstein’s whereabouts on Wednesday.
His absence left the Twitterverse curious:
Bernstein, who was on air Tuesday, has since removed the offensive tweet.
UPDATE: Bernstein was suspended on Wednesday, sources confirm.
