SIRIUSXM Exec. Producer of Sports BLEACHER REPORT RADIO and NBA RADIO Dir./Programming DAN ZAMPILLO is joining RED ZEBRA BROADCASTING as Dir./Programming for Sports WTEM-A (ESPN 980)/WASHINGTON, starting MAY 4th.

ZAMPILLO, the former PD at CBS RADIO Sports WXYT-F (97.1 THE TICKET)/DETROIT and APD at TRIBUNE News-Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO, tweeted on TUESDAY (4/28), "So happy to be joining @ESPNRadio980 I feel honored and humbled to program such a great station." The move was first reported at DCRTV.COM.
RED ZEBRA CEO RICK CARMEAN said, "When it comes to sports, we have the best on-air talent in the area. We look forward to having DAN join our team. He brings great leadership, experience and fresh insight."
