|RADIO ONLINE | Wednesday, August 28, 2019|
KGME-FM (Fox Sports 910)/Phoenix moves "The Drive" with host Jody Oehler from afternoons to mornings (5-10am), beginning September 3. Throughout the run of the show, Oehler has had some of the biggest names in sports on-air regularly including Donovan McNabb, Jake Plummer, Ian Rapoport, Kent Somers and Greg Amsinger as well as everyone's favorite radio segment, "Top 5 Thursday" which ranks the top five sports stories every Thursday.
"Jody is, without a doubt, a sports talk pro who just tells it like it is, and what better way to start your mornings in Phoenix if you're a sports fan," said iHeartMedia Phoenix Market President Linda Little. "Moving Jody Oehler to mornings on Fox Sports 910 was a no-brainer, and now sports fans have a place to start the day with the biggest stories in sports."
"I'm incredibly excited to be moving to mornings," added Oehler. "In a city like Phoenix with all the local teams and transplant residents, I relish the opportunity to offer my reaction to the biggest local and national sporting events. We'll do it better than anyone in the market with truth, humor and fun. And as a bonus, I won't get into a near fist fight with myself on the air."
Prior to joining KGME, Oehler hosted afternoons at then Journal's KFFN-AM on 1490 AM and 104.9 FM in Tucson, and was a sports anchor at KGUN-TV.
