Losing job leads to better opportunity for Zinno in Atlanta

(December 5, 2017) Losing a job can feel like the end of the world. Sometimes, though, it is a blessing in disguise. That is what happened to Mark Zinno. He’s gone from hosting overnights to afternoon drive in a Top 10 market. An STAA member, Zinno is the newest member of the lineup at The Fan 2.

It’s a big change from one year ago.

Last fall, Zinno was moved to overnights at Atlanta’s Sports Radio 92.9 The Game after hosting an evening show for several months. The move was made because Zinno’s show was regularly being pre-empted by Hawks basketball. Working overnights with a wife and toddler twins at home as difficult. In April, Zinno and the station parted ways.

While searching for his next opportunity, Zinno stayed busy in broadcasting with The Hazard Ground, a podcast he started in January that is growing quickly in popularity. Zinno is a former Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S Army/Army National Guard and an Iraq war veteran. The podcast features servicemen from across the military sharing their stories of combat and survival.

Zinno started his show on The Fan 2 this week. He says with excitement that the show “is better than ever!”
