‘Air Thunder’ to debut

The Oklahoma City Thunder will debut a magazine show, "Air Thunder,” at 6:30 p.m. Monday, on KSBI-52 (Cox 9) and Fox Sports Oklahoma (Cox 37).

The weekly show, hosted by sideline reporter Brent Weber, plans to go beyond the court and provide fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the NBA franchise.

"This show will help the fans get to know our players and our organization,” said Ken Adelson, Thunder senior vice president and executive producer. "We’re tying the organization to the community, and we have many stories to tell.”

The show also will air on Fox Sports Oklahoma before the Thunder Live pre-game show on Tuesday or Wednesday night, whichever day has a telecast.
