SHARE 670 The Score to air special Doug Buffone tribute

670 The Score will air a special tribute to the late Doug Buffone, who passed away at the age of 70 in April. The special will air on Sunday, Sept. 6.

Buffone played linebacker for the Chicago Bears from 1966-1979.

After his playing career, Buffone was beloved for his post-game coverage of the Bears with Ed O’Bradovich.

Via 670 The Score:

The one-hour commerical-free tribute will air after the conclusion of the White Sox postgame show. The White Sox-Royals game starts at 1:10 p.m. Sunday, so the tribute should begin late afternoon. The Buffone tribute will be told by co-workers at The Score and former Bears teammates. It will also include some of the best Buffone soundbites over the years, as well as some never-before-heard audio.

Buffone played 186 games with the Bears.
