“Spitz on Sports” returns to WENG radio March 30

(Venice, FL) Radio colleague Rich “Spitz” Spedaliere tells me that “Spitz on Sports” is returning to the WENG airwaves. The show will air every Monday through Wednesday from 5-6 pm beginning March 30th, making it the only live and local sports talk show originating in Sarasota and Charlotte Counties.

Host Rich Spedaliere commented “With my wife’s health improving and with her blessing I thought it was a good time to bring the show back to the listeners of the Suncoast. I am very happy to have secured an afternoon drive time slot and look forward to taking listeners home with the interviews with local and national guests as well as an edgy view of the sports world they’ve come to expect.”
