Marc Silverman Biography

Marc Silverman Is Chicago’s Best Sports Radio Host. He has been called Chicago’s hardest working radio personality. He is the co-host of the Waddle and Silvy Show on WMVP, ESPN1000 with former Bears and Bengals wide-out Tom Waddle as of 2019.

He grew up in Skokie and attended Niles North High School. From day one he has been a Chicago fan. He loves his Cubs and will let you know it. He shows great leadership and does not let a diva like Waddle walk all over him.

He has worked hard to get to where he is at. He has been a beat reporter for the Bears and covered many of Chicago’s truly great moments from three Bulls Championships, Super Bowls and a World Series Championship.

Silvy tends to be the butt of many jokes on the other popular local show The Afternoon Saloon with, former co-host on Silvy and Carmen, Carmen DeFalco, funny man, Harry Teinowitz and former NFL lineman, John Jurkovic.

They like to play funny sound bits of Silvy saying something humorous and what not. But I feel as if they truly respect his work and what he brings to the station.

He brings passion as a true Chicago fan along with a real insight into the teams. He does not let his allegiances to Chicago teams get in the way of true opinions. He is a fan first and radio host second. For me, he is the best sports personality in Chicago.

Marc Silverman buys Riverwoods house

Marc Silverman, afternoon co-host of WMVP-AM’s “Waddle and Silvy,” has moved from the city to the northern suburbs, paying $950,000 for a four-bedroom, 4,014-square-foot house in Riverwoods and selling his longtime condo in Ukrainian Village for $644,000.

His’s new house had been listed for $1 million. It has 41/2 baths, a fully finished walk-out lower level, crown moldings, built-ins in most rooms and refinished floors.

A Skokie native, Silverman has been a staple on Chicago sports talk radio. Now a father with a 21-week-old son, Silverman told Elite Street that he and his wife originally planned to move to the suburbs sometime next year. A hot real estate market caused a change of heart.

“I had noticed some of the flyers you get from Realtors and some of the comps in our neighborhood were just surprised me,” Silverman said. “People are selling a comparable unit to what we have now. And I hate to be in a situation where you’re looking to sell real estate where you have to sell and it’s a desperate situation. So I hired an agent and said, ‘Look, if we (put it up for sale) and we get close to what we’re looking for, we’re gonna go.’ And the first person who showed up gave us an offer.”

With his wife listed their three-bedroom condo for $649,900 and closed just weeks later. He paid $558,500 in 2010 for the multilevel unit, which is in a building constructed in 2007.

“It was very tough to leave Ukrainian Village,” Silverman said. “It has so many great restaurants and shops.”

GrubHub boss buys Matt Maloney, co-founder, and CEO of Chicago-based GrubHub Seamless, and his wife paid $3.44 million this month for a six-bedroom, 7,000-square-foot vintage mansion in Lincoln Park.

Built in 1886, the mansion had been on the market since April, when it was listed for $4.9 million.

The mansion is unusual for Lincoln Park in that it’s built on a double lot and extends 50 feet, from lot line to lot line. Features include 41/2 baths, two fireplaces, 11.5-foot ceilings, tall windows, hardwood floors, a sunroom, multiple entertaining spaces, and a four-car garage. The agent who represented the Maloneys, Colette Cachey Smithburg, said her clients declined to comment on the deal.

“Exceptional authority and impeccable taste” described the playing of pianist Marc Silverman in The New York Times.
