Rich Shertenlieb returns to Boston radio with the premiere of a new show on WZLX

MEDFORD – Rich Shertenlieb returned to Boston radio Monday morning with his highly anticipated new performance on WZLX.

Shertenlieb was once part of the ratings-dominating morning show Toucher & Rich 98.5 The sports hubleft the station last November, after a bitter end to his 17-year collaboration with Fred Toucher. Now they are competitors.

The Rich Shertenlieb Show

After six months off the air, Rich Shertenlieb was back at 6 a.m. Monday to launch his new show on WZLX, simply called “The Rich Shertenlieb Show.”

“It’s great, but you know, all the pressure remains,” Shertenlieb told WBZ-TV. “If this fails, my name will be on it, but you know what, it’s what I’ve always wanted. It’s what I’ve been working towards my entire career and I’m glad ZLX and iHeart were able to give it to me.”

Shertenlieb is joined daily by former CBS News Boston sportswriter Michael Hurley and a rotating group of other co-hosts, including former New England Patriots linebacker Ted Johnson.

Shertenlieb said he left Toucher and Rich for a “better opportunity.”

“It’s that simple. I really like the place I worked. I liked a lot of the people there. But sometimes you get to see something as cool as this and you just can’t say no,” he told WBZ. “I know it’s not what people want to hear, but it’s the truth and they gave me everything I wanted to do, the kind of show I wanted to do.”

“Sports and other nonsense”

So what is the show on a classic rock station about?

“Sports and other nonsense,” Shertenlieb said. “We’re going to complain about the Bruins, we’re going to celebrate the Celtics, and we’re going to analyze the new Roadhouse film like it’s the Zapruder movie.”

The Rich Shertenlieb Show airs weekdays from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. on 100.7 WZLX in Boston.
