NRG Media in Omaha is proud to announce that Gary Sharp and Damon Benning, hosts of Sharp and Benning in the Morning, a program that airs daily on Omaha sports radio station 1620 The Zone, have been recognized among “Top Local Sports Talkers in America” by Radio Ink Magazine.  Sharp and Benning who have been hosting the program for the past two years, received the broadcast industry recognition for their on-air content.  Station Program Director, Neil Nelkin, said that the two deserve the recognition for creating relevant, engaging content every single day.

1620 The Zone General Manager, Andy Ruback, credits their success to the fact that they are heavily involved in Omaha and Nebraska communities and that gives them the opportunity to keep their finger on the pulse of what is important to sports fans. Also, Sharp and Benning share their passion and love of sports during every program.  Gary Sharp explained that part of the success the two share, is due to the fact that on-air, they create the kind of atmosphere where it seems like sitting down with the guy at the other end of the bar.  For more information about NRG Media, please call Becca Sautter at (402) 342-2000 or go to
