Last month, the Redskins confirmed that Red Zebra broadcasting chief executive Rick Carmean had left the company and would not be replaced. The team also said that Redskins Executive Vice President Terry Bateman, the chairman of Red Zebra, would take a more active role in running the stations, including 980, the team’s flagship station. Bateman said then that the move signaled a closer business relationship between the Redskins and the station, but there would “absolutely not” be increased control of the station’s content.
A Redskins spokesman confirmed Tuesday that the station is “in the process of restructuring.” Zampillo, the former director of programming for Bleacher Report and NBA Radio at SiriusXM Radio, declined to comment.
Monday’s e-mail to 980 staffers thanked Zampillo “for his continuous support,” and asked employees to wish him success in future endeavors.
