In addition to game broadcasts and pregame and postgame shows, The Sports Animal will continue to carry the weekly “Thunder Insider.” Beginning this season, Pinto will host a weekly call-in Thunder talk show and the station will provide a live stream of Thunder games via its website, thesportsanimal.com. That stream will be limited to a 75-mile radius around Oklahoma City.

Thunder coverage on The Sports Animal also includes daily practice reports, player interviews and regular on-air appearances by Pinto and TV analysts the Fox Sports Oklahoma broadcast team of Brian Davis and Grant Long.

Live Spanish-language broadcasts of Thunder home games will continue on Cumulus station WKY-AM 930 (La Indomable). Veteran broadcaster Eleno Ornelas will return to provide play-by-play. Ornelas also serves as the Spanish-language announcer for the Texas Rangers.
