Red Zebra’s Zeir On The Next Big Thing

The Examiner’s Jim Williams got the inside scoop on Red Zebra radio from co-founder and CEO Bennett Zeir, including a sneak peak at the tentative line-up.

Zeir on Red Zebra’s growth beyond football: “I think that we have plenty to offer other sports teams that want to be part of Red Zebra and we will be very aggressive about securing rights. We are an all-sports radio station and we have some of the best on-air talent in the country. The key point is that we are all about serving and entertaining our audience. Our hosts can and will talk about all sports and yes, adding more teams and talking sports other than football is a big part of our plans starting Tuesday.”

The final details of program schedule should become official late this afternoon but this is the likely lineup:

  • 6-10 a.m.: Mike and Mike in the Morning

  • 10 a.m.-noon: The Herd with Colin Cowherd

  • Noon-1 p.m.: Larry Michael live from Redskins Park

  • 1-4 p.m.: The Dan Patrick Show

  • 4-7 p.m.: The John Riggins Show with Bram Weinstein

  • 7-11 p.m.: ESPN Game Night

  • 11 p.m.-6 a.m.: ESPN Up All Night with Jason Smith

    More Zier: “The company may boast a Zebra for a logo. But it will be an 800-pound gorilla in this market and a force to be reckoned with in broadcasting.”
