In 1964 when Zach’s contract was up at WPIX he hosted a teenage dance show at WNJU-TV in Newark, NJ called Disc-O-Teen, hosting the show in full costume. The show ran for three years until 1967, when he became a morning radio host for WNEW-FM. Two years later in 1969, he became the station night broadcaster (10 PM–2 AM) for a progressive rock format. In 1971 he switched his show to WPLJ-FM, where he stayed for ten years. 

In 1963 Zacherley moved to WPIX Ch. 11 where he hosted Chiller Theater and Hercules cartoons. In 2008 Zach returned to WPIX for a special Halloween Chiller Theater featuring the movie Tarantula (1955)
