redbankgreen is pleased to introduce a new page. Headed “redbankgreen Sports powered by Shore Sports Zone,” it’s where you’ll find local sports news, much of it in the form of highly polished video reporting by Rich Chrampanis, founder of the independent website Shore Sports Zone, which is also debuting this week.

Chrampanis, who grew up in Middletown and graduated from Christian Brothers Academy (’88), is a veteran at this. After graudating from St. Bonaventure, he spent two decades in television sports coverage as an on-air reporter, anchor and producer. After 14 years at piloting the sports desk at WPDE-TV in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Chrampanis moved his family to Little Silver earlier this year to create Shore Sports Zone. With detailed school pages and timely video coverage, Chrampanis hopes to make the site the top resource for fans of high school sports in Monmouth and Ocean Counties.

We at redbankgreen hope to help him put it across the goal line while offering our readers something we haven’t had in the eight years this site has been around. So tune in here for hyperlocal sports coverage, and get the bigger picture at Shore Sports Zone.

We hope you find both our sports page and Shore Sports Zone informative and entertaining. Let us know what you think.
