5' MAY 4 ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH WEDNESDAY, MAY 4, 1988 5D SPORTS i Rzeppa Parlayed Talent And Timing Into Big Success BOB BROEG CONTRIBUTING BPORTS EDITOR ! No wonder Zip Rzeppa was a pa-! perweight quarterback. He had more crust than overbaked bread. Imagine ' a guy unemployed six months and with empty pockets four years ago, offered a $50,000-a-year contract and , holding out for $75,000? That's the Zipper . . . er. Zip, a re-' markable overnight sports success now sitting out six months again, this time in the penalty box before taking ' over a $300,000 contract with KMOV-I TV. ; This time, however, Rzeppa is not ! financially horse-collared. In the in- ' terlude of a contractual tug of war between KMOV (Channel 4) and his former employer, KTVI (Channel 2), . Rzeppa is working a 35-station, five-minute radio syndicate and doing a few commercials. Additionally, pleas- ; antly for St. Louis honorees, he's preparing to serve as master of ceremo-nies at the Post-Dispatch's Scholar-Athlete dinner. The 22nd annual S-A festivities will be Thursday, May 12, at the Omni ; International Hotel. Rzeppa will join an impressive list of former P-J dinner emcees. He listened to the list: Jack Buck ... Joe Garagiola ... Jay Randolph . . . John Auble . . . Jim : Bakken . . . Bob Costas . . . Dan Dier-dorf . . . and Bill Wilkerson . . . some : obviously more than once. After coming to St. Louis, Rzeppa 1 turned from a local unknown into the i hottest personal property. So hot, in ; fact, that when he sought to leave Channel 2 for Channel 4, he was caught in a legal rundown play. He escaped, but KTVI won the right to keep him off the rival's boob tube for six months. Rzeppa, who surfaced in St. Louis on Feb. 13, 1984, will go on KMOV on July 11. For Rzeppa, 36, this is as unbeliev- , able a development as it is for many who thought at first that he was only i a funny-faced hotshot. Truth is, Rzeppa isn't funny-faced at all. And he is extremely efficient. If you will, a writer who preferred to be seen ; and heard. Modestly, he said his rapid success in the eternal and infernal ratings , war of network news shows was due in part because the "timing was right" But there's much more to it than happenstance. ! Sure, Rzeppa's early "Zippo : Awards" the best, the worst and the weirdest, edited on tape by his " own hands were an eye-catching MICHEUN I 'Jtt.-iS'W 1 a-a. 1 1 " ' i:. . js-- -"- -miMMi.. -r - ww .ear 1 -TV FFJ STBATTON PREMIUM SX 5000 ALL SEASON STEEL MDIALS 2 StMl Ball Whltewall ALL SEASON STEEL RADIALS 2 Steel Belli Whltewall Long-Listing All-Ssason Tire Handlee Precisely.

Also, more disciplined timing and more time. Like a good newspaper copy editor, writing better photo captions, he timed his voice-over remarks so that they set up a viewer for what he would see, not what he had seen. Rzeppa said: "I had a videotape editing machine put in the sports office at Channel 2, and I dictated the shots to be used. At Channel 4, the producer has done it, but he'll find that I will structure my own shots and show." So that's how Christopher Rzeppa did it, the guy called "Zip" because he was only half-fast, a medium-sized guy (5 feet 9, 155 pounds) whose asset was the strong, accurate throwing arm that zipped the ball and led to his nickname. " Rzeppa played for a Catholic high school in suburban Detroit. His father, Edward, a product of Polish-German ancestors, sells automobiles. Zip's mother was Irish on both sides. He has two younger brothers. A baseball shortstop who described himself as "good field, no hit" and who idolized outfielder Al Kaline of the Tigers, he gravitated early to football and to basketball. His other athletic hero was hard-nosed, high-scoring Gordie Howe of the hockey Red Wings. To get away from work early, he worked a 6 a.m.-to-3 p.m. shift as a summertime busboy so that he could go into the city and shoot baskets with Detroit's playground sharpshooters. He played basketball for a time at Boston University, where he gravitat-' ed to get away from home and to study journalism. At BU, Rzeppa fell under the influence of Tim Cohane, an ex-newspaperman and longtime sports editor of Look magazine. The tough-talking, hard-drinking Cohane was a top-grade journalism teacher. He chewed out Rzeppa many times over his writing, Zip recalls fondly. Broadcasting on BU's pygmy radio station, he suddenly got an unexpected opportunity. A metropolitan broadcaster of Terriers games quit for a better job. The kid moved into the radio varsity for two years, airing football and basketball games. After graduating, Rzeppa did a daring thing. With little money, he took a nine-month leave to circle the nation by Greyhound bus, taking in major sports events with press credentials. He sought to become, in effect, a Charles Kuralt kind of radio sports nomad with brief, brittle Win Elliott humor. His potential interview syndicate didn't get out of the economic infield. So in 1976 he went to work for a STHATTON SUPER 70 ALL SEASON STEEL RADIALS 2 Steal Ball!

TV station for $40 a weekend. "I slept on the news director's couch," he said. Six weeks later, Saginaw, Mich., near home, beckoned with a whopping full-time job, $15,000. Three years later, he went with NBC's outlet in Cincinnati, teaming with Bob Trumpy and Weeb Ewbank on preseason pro-football telecasts. When Cincy won an NFL division championship in 1981, Zip wrote the lyrics and hummed a tune for a rabbit-eared pianist, creating a record titled "The Ballad of the Bengals." Sold about 15,000 "even with me singing," Rzeppa noted. The town Zip loved, Boston, beckoned. He went back for a fetching $80,000 offer from a CBS-TV outlet. Trouble was, with the company hurting for money, the guy who hired him was fired. So were Rzeppa and others. This time an attempted recording about hockey's Bruins flopped. That's when, with Rzeppa canvassing the country, the Times-Mirror Corp. contacted him for a secret St. Louis look-see.Zip got the job at Channel 2, but, as mentioned, that's when he bad the gall to risk longer unemployment by asking for $75,000 when Channel 2 offered $50,000. Spoken like only a gutsy bachelor who, incidentally, bought Red Beren-son's home in Town and Country and converted three of the five bedrooms an office, a radio-recording room and a gym. The trim faddist trots three miles daily. St. Louis now has replaced Boston as the object of Zip Rzeppa's affection. "If I marry and have children, I'd like it to be here," he said. Please girls, don't bother Zip the Lip until after the Post-Dispatch's Scholar-Athlete dinner. ill Vtt&MKt I'll il ! 1 I M ! GOODYEAR AHHIVA ALL SEASON STEEL RADIALS 2 Steel Belt!

Ladue coach Phil Brusca, who entered Simmons at Clayton with a qualifying mark of 7 feet, said he didn't report Simmons' dual-meet mark "because it was just a small meet and we feel he'll be able to do it again at a much bigger meet." Unfortunately, for track and field fans, Plab and Simmons will not have the opportunity to compete against each other this season. coln. 11:33.2: Shelley Hill (Soph.), Lafayette. 100-METER HURDLES (33-Inch) 15 1: Charman Jackson (Sr.), Lafayette. 15.2: Savannah Taylor (Soph.), Lincoln. 15.7: Donna Little (Soph ), Riverview Gardens. 1 5.8: Tracy Lambert (Jr.), Oakville. 100-METER HURDLES (30-inch) 15 4: Savannah Taylor (Soph.), Lincoln. 15.6: Briana Smith (Fr), Edwardsvilie. 300-METER HURDLES 44.5: Patrice Liddell (Jr.), Lincoln. 45.4: Reflaye Williams (Jr.), Belleville East. 46.3: Stephanie Small (Sr.), Riverview Gardens. 46.5: Savannah Taylor (Soph.), Lincoln. 47.9: Michelle Love (Soph.), Hazelwood Ce'ntral. 48.2: Tracy Lambert (Jr.), Oakville. 4X100-METER RELAY 48.5: Lincoln (Savannah Taylor, Patrice Liddell, Lecia Rives, Carmelita Williams). 49.6: Webster Groves. 49.7: Edwardsvilie. 50.2: Ladue. 50.3: Hazelwood Central. 50.7: Parkway South; University City. 4x200-METER RELAY 1:43.6: Lincoln (Savannah Taylor, Cynthia Tylor, Lecia Rives, Patrice Liddell). 1:45.2: Normandy. 1:47.5: Webster Groves. 1.47.6: Clayton. 1:47.8: McCluer North. 4x400-METER RELAY 3:59.4: Lincoln (Savannah Taylor, Cynthia Tylor, Lecia Rives, Carmelita Williams). 4:00.0: Riverview Gardens. 4:01.5: Normandy. 4:04.4: Clayton. 4:08.2: Francis Howell. 4x800-METER RELAY 9:33.5: Francis Howell (Sarah Bliss, Kristy Rees, Robin Putnam, Susan Bliss). 9:41.0: Lafayette. 9:51.9: Lincoln. 10:00.2: Parkway South. 10:03.0: Hazelwood Central.
