RAHEEL RAMZANALI BACK ON RADIO WITH JOHN GRANATO
Written by: LM
The 10a-2p just got a tad more interesting. Raheel Ramzanali one of the originals of 1560 Game returned back to the airwaves. According to Houston Chronicle's David Barron, Raheel will be teamed with one of Houston's best radio personality, John Granato from 10A- Noon.
I'm interested to see how this will play out because Raheel has been away from radio a while and I'm following him via twitter, he's had some life changes and matured. The last time Raheel was on air in a reoccurring role, he was young. Raheel is cool when it comes to Hip Hop, Pop Culture and University of Texas Sports (Alumn). I never really thought of Raheel as a "sports" guy but compared to what's currently on air, I'm sure he can hold his on.
Raheel is no stranger to John Granato; in fact he worked under Granato for a period as a coworker and employee.
Upon learning the news, I reached out to Raheel for a few comments.
LM: How do you feel about being back on radio? Will you do anything different than before? Explain your other duties. You will be competing with the SEC of time slots, are you up for the challenge?
RAHEEL: I am so excited to be back and doing something I truly love. I was a listener for the years I was out of radio so I understand the listening habits and limitations of listeners. I hope to apply some of those lessons I learned to the show. My other duties will include managing the digital side of Gow Communications and helping grow that side of the business.
I am definitely up for the challenge. But like any challenge it is up to the team and I think I have some great teammates in John Granato, Del, and the rest of the ESPN Houston and Gow Communications staff.
Although Raheel is no stranger to radio, I do believe working with a high profile local personality like John Granato will help Raheel. In addition to, Raheel will also rejoin a former coworker, Del Olaleye. Del will be producing John and Raheel as he did for John Granato and Lance Zierlein.
WRAP IT UP
I'm happy there is another local option. In Raheel's comments, he mentioned he monitored "listening habits" but more importantly, I know he monitors Social Media habits. I believe the Social Media outreach could be the X Factor for their show if used right.
Lets keep it 100, Granato, Raheel and Del will bring Gamers back
