WHO IS RUSS BLISS?
Russ Bliss has hosted The Red Zone since 1997, making it one
of the longest running continuous fantasy football radio shows in the world, if
not the longest running still on the air. Starting on what is now NBC Sports

he also hosted shows on Sirius/XM on the Sports Byline USA Network and also a

The Red Zone” was recognized as one of the top Fantasy Football Blogs by the
Wall Street Journal.
Russ’s partnership with Santisi Brothers Pizzeria and Sports
Grill began in 1999 when he started making appearances and promoting the
Fantasy Challenge there once a week. In 2001, after leaving a full time
position in the radio industry, Russ partnered with Santisi Brothers and NBC
Sports Radio AM 1060 to continue doing the fantasy football radio show. The
show’s huge success is both a testament to how Russ treats his callers and
those who come into Santisi Brothers to meet him and play the Fantasy
Challenge, along with showing the highest quality of Santisi Brother’s as
