CLEVELAND — Are you ready for the return of the Riz?
Former Sports Anchor Tony Rizzo is coming back to Fox 8 with a brand new show airing Sunday nights at 11:00 p.m.
During a recent rehearsal of The Rizzo Show, Tony reflected on his return.
“I’ve been gone a year-and-a-half but I felt the time was right to come back and I’m really looking forward to the show,” said Rizzo. “We’re going to have some sports takes. We’re gonna have some gambling. We’re gonna do a little food and we’re gonna have a lot of fun.”
After nearly 14-years as a sports anchor on Fox 8 News, Tony left 18 months ago to concentrate on his top-rated radio show on ESPN Cleveland WKNR.
“I hope viewers recognize me. It’s still the same me. I got re-married, I’ve been playing a lot of golf,” said Rizzo.
The Riz also gave us a preview of what viewers can expect from his new show.
“Anything can happen, just like when I did the news. And anything will happen,” he added. “We’ve got a great cast. Mike Polk, one of the top comedians in the area, will do a piece every week. We’ll have a big interview each week. The first week is Cleveland’s favorite quarterback. That’s all I’ll say.”
So get ready for the return of The Riz.
The Rizzo Show will air live and uncensored on Fox 8, every Sunday night at 11:00 p.m. starting this Sunday, September 2nd.
Tony added one final thing … “Wheeee.”
