Many minor league baseball fans will recognize Zolzer as being the entertaining announcer at the Hudson Valley Renegades games. He has been with the HV Renegades for 18 years and is now the vice-president. During his time with the baseball club, he was in charge of the Renegades’ special events department. When he had that position, he was responsible for having raised enough money to give away over $500,000 to local kids and family initiatives. Along the way, he has been a radio sports broadcaster at WPDH for 20 years and WRWD for 2 years. In addition, he was the New Jersey Nets public address (PA) announcer for 3 years and announced the National Basketball Association (NBA) finals 2 years in a row. He also was the Army Football PA announcer for 7 years. To keep his sports skills up, he coached baseball, football, and basketball at Our Lady of Lourdes High School in Poughkeepsie for 6 years and football at Marist College for 3 years. Because he enjoys entertaining people, he figured he could create a company that would afford him the opportunity to perform, entertain, and earn a salary. Zolz Entertainment, a DJ Company, was launched 30 years ago and continues to be a strong business in that niche industry.
