Are you serious? Before wfnz, who was here? They've been there for the longest time and have a lot of affiliates in the Carolinas. Before the Drive came on the other show with the guy who's name escapes me was the best show on there. They've been featured on ESPN as well for breaking some news and other local events. They are legit as it gets. With that being said, it doesn't mean they are the best... but they are legit.
The guy who had the show before The Drive was Mark Packer. I guarantee WFNZ is kicking themselves for letting him walk. Packer probably regrets a little bit as well because he isn't doing much now either. I heard he has a podcast.
Like I said before, Brett Jensen is the only thing WFNZ has on it's station to a legitimate sports writer.
