Toledo Radio: Andrew Z Sentenced To 30-Days

Toledo radio personality, Andrew Z, will serve a 30-day jail sentence and another five years of community control for violating probation.

Zepeda is the current host of Andrew Z in the Morning on Cumulus-owned WWWM / Star 105.

According to, Andrew Zepeda underwent alcohol dependency treatment after pleading guilty to charges related to the 2010 burglary of his former Perrysburg pizzeria.

In November 2010, Zepeda was indicted by a Wood County Grand Jury on three different felony charges, including theft, failure to remit sales tax and complicity to commit breaking and entering.

Zepeda, former of host of Andrew Z in the Morning on Clear Channel’s WVKS 92.5 KISS-FM, has since maintained his innocence. His attorney, Beau Harvey, filed motions asking that his client be accepted for an intervention in lieu of conviction. The motion, which implies Zepeda made decisions under the influence of an alcohol addiction, was made rather than entering a plea.

A Wood County judge granted Zepeda an intervention. Zepeda then pleaded guilty to all felony charges against him. However, within a year, he was back in court to face the charges again after violating conditions of his intervention.

In court on Thursday, Zepeda was ordered to serve 30 days behind bars at the Wood County Justice Center. He was also sentenced to five years of community control. He will enter jail on Jan. 21.


  1. So why is he not on air for his last show of the year? His current station isn't airing any morning show. Is he done with Morning Radio? Been an hour now and its all music and commercials. I saw he had a post telling us he would be on today.

  2. Andrew Z is still listed on the Star website. Stay tuned.
