When long-time St. Louis Sportscaster Zip Rzeppa came on television sets in the 1980’s, it’s probably safe to say audiences had never seen or heard anything like him. He didn’t have traditional television good looks and he didn’t do stuffy sportscasts. He dared to be different and to entertain. But not everyone took to Zip’s style. Fellow broadcasters were suspicious and there was even a stretch where former Cardinal Manager Whitey Herzog refused to talk to Zip. His life is now largely focused on his faith.
