CUMULUS Sports WNMQ (103.1 THE TEAM)/COLUMBUS, MS has launched a new local weekday afternoon show, “THE DRIVE WITH STEVE & THE PROFESSOR,” hosted by STEVE ROGERS and GLENN “THE PROFESSOR” LAUTZENHISER. The show debuted yesterday (11/28) and airs 4-6p (ET).
CUMULUS/COLUMBUS-STARKVILLE cluster Operations/Programming Dir. CHRIS STRYKER said, “We are very excited to welcome THE DRIVE WITH STEVE AND THE PROFESSOR to our CUMULUS programming lineup here in COLUMBUS, MS. STEVE ROGERS and GLENN LAUTZENHISER have an intimate knowledge of sports from the local to national level and will be great assets to our station and listeners.”
VP/Market Manager GREG BENEFIELD said, “This entertaining new sports talk program will help advance the growth of WNMQ-FM, while extending our ‘live and local’ platform to 103.1 THE TEAM’s passionate audience of local sports fans.”
ROGERS said, "It seems only natural to do this kind of show in a sports hotbed like the GOLDEN TRIANGLE. You are in the middle of MISSISSIPPI STATE, OLE MISS, ALABAMA and five community colleges. And that doesn't even include some of the best high school sports traditions anywhere."
"We're very excited about it because we think it has great potential," said LAUTZENHISER. "We know the people in NORTH MISSISSIPPI and WEST ALABAMA love their sports. I love sports and sports history. We're going to give people an opportunity to talk about their passion."
