A Chicago sports radio producer has been off the air since last Friday, a day after he said “I’m going to sleep with your mom” to a news radio rival.

Shane Riordan, producer of the afternoon workout show “Parkins & Spiegel” on 670 The Score, “would have been punished” by the station following the rude hit, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, which noted that Riordan is “expected to return.”

The imbroglio began last week when FS1 host Colin Cowherd said he would love to live in Chicago and co-host Jason McIntyre compared the city to Afghanistan, as violent crime spikes. have intensified since the pre-pandemic years.

“Keep Chicago out of your fucking mouth, @jasonrmcintyre,” Riordan tweeted last Wednesday. “You are both misinformed and disgusting.”

Riordan also tweeted, “I can’t get over this. Jason is such a piece of shit.

Dan Proft, a conservative talk show host from Chicago on WIND 580 AM, later chastised Riordan and The Score in a separate post.

As the back-and-forth between Riordan and Proft continued on Twitter, the spat eventually caught on the airwaves.

First, Proft took on Riordan and The Score on his show.

Next, “Parkins & Spiegel” played a clip from Proft’s show, to which Riordan was later torn.

Although it seemed like an ordinary radio jam, Riordan took the banter to a different level.

“Dan, I’m going to have sex with your mom,” Riordan said as hosts Danny Parkins and Matt Spiegel laughed aloud.

“Dan Proft, you bring your mother here, and I’ll bone her.”

Proft tweeted in response to the segment that his mother “dearly passed away.”

In a statement to the Chicago Sun-Times, a spokesperson for Audacy, the parent company of 670 The Score, said, “We have no comment on last week’s incident at The Score.”

Riordan, who hasn’t tweeted since Thursday, declined to comment to the Chicago Sun-Times.
