RED ZEBRA BROADCASTING Sports WTEM-A-WWXX-WWXT (ESPN 980)/WASHINGTON launches "INSIDE THE RED ZONE WITH VINNY CERRATO" for MONDAYS and FRIDAYS 10a-noon throughout the NFL season. CERRATO, the WASHINGTON REDSKINS EVP of Football Operations, was joined for his first show FRIDAY by veteran D.C. sportscaster GEORGE MICHAEL.
"Having this first-of-its-kind opportunity for an NFL Executive and decision-maker on our airwaves for four hours a week during football season is a win-win for the listeners and ESPN 980. In developing the concept for this show, our goal from the outset was to give fans the opportunity to talk with VINNY -- whether the REDSKINS win or lose; and that’s exactly what our listeners will be getting," said VP of Operations DENNIS GLASGOW.
"Our fans are smart and passionate about sports and the REDSKINS and they are constantly in search of inside information about their favorite team," added CEO BRUCE GILBERT. "We are in a unique position to pull back the curtain and give our fans live, direct interaction with a top executive within the REDSKINS organization. We are excited to offer this unprecedented peak inside the team’s brain trust before and after each game this season."
