The Drive

WWLS The Sports Animal 98.1 FM

About

The game-winning drive. A successful drive to the basket. Line drives, a drive down the center of the fairway, your favorite team driving you crazy. And, of course, the drive you take every day with the Sports Animal.


Welcome to The Drive, weekdays 9a-12p, is hosted by Matt Ravis, produced by Matt Meyer and features Coach Pat Jones live from Tulsa at 10am and Mark Rodgers at 11!


To me, the word ‘drive’ evokes a sense of forward motion. It’s also a reminder that YOU help drive the conversation.
