ESPN 980 unveils new afternoon radio show, The Drive with Cooley and Czabe, to debut on ESPN 980 Aug. 1st

Washington DC (July 22, 2013) - RED ZEBRA BROADCASTING announces today, that long time afternoon drive host Steve Czaban, will be joined by former Redskins Pro Bowl tight end Chris Cooley and current ESPN980 Sports Saturday host Al Galdi to form a new afternoon drive program on ESPN980.

Steve Czaban, who has co-hosted “The Sports Reporters” on WTEM for the last 13 years said of the new show "I will work tirelessly to make Chris Cooley the second most beloved ex-Redskin tight end on radio in the DC market. “

Co-Host Chris Cooley starts his full time broadcasting career after nine years in the NFL with the Washington Redskins. Cooley’s opinions and unpredictability will bring excitement to this new project “I have listened and enjoyed Czabe ’s show since I was a little kid. A real little kid. He kind of reminds me of a much older Sherm Lewis.”

Al Galdi rounds out the cast. Al is a native Washingtonian that began at WTEM fifteen years ago as an intern and has worked his way up the ranks. Al will bring a well rounded knowledge of all sports and pop culture to the show.

Andy Pollin remains with Red Zebra and will fill-in for the vacationing Tony Kornheiser beginning August 5th.

“THE DRIVE WITH COOLEY AND CZABE” will debut on August 1st, 2013 and will air from 4pm – 7pm Monday thru Friday.
