Any Redskins fan who ever wanted to drill one of the team’s executives about what’s going on will now have that chance, Monday or Friday, by calling in to ESPN 980 in Washington.
Starting Friday, Redskins executive vice president Vinny Cerrato will co-host a call-in radio show from 10 a.m. to noon. Cerrato will co-host Friday’s show with television broadcaster George Michael, and they must have been pretty strapped for guests. Very strapped, in fact. Somehow, they booked me for Friday.
But Cerrato now will branch out of his player personnel responsibilities into the media, which isn’t much of a reach. Cerrato previously worked at ESPN after the Redskins fired him in 2001. Cerrato left ESPN to rejoin the Redskins, where he rose up the ranks to become Dan Snyder‘s right-hand man.
Now Snyder’s right-hand man might just be the only NFL executive to have a twice-weekly radio show, taking calls from the fans he is trying to make happy. On days after wins, it should be fun. On days after losses, not so much.
