The “Oklahoma High School Sports Express” has expanded into Tulsa with the addition of KWHB-47. Beginning Aug. 19, the station will air the weekly program at 10:30 p.m. Sunday, the same time as Oklahoma City's KOKH-25.

Host Van Shea Iven said the show, in its seventh year, will now air in 66 of the state's 77 counties, and he hopes to add additional stations. Additional airings can be found during the week on stations in Enid, Stillwater, Lawton, Broken Arrow, McAlester, Ponca City and on Pioneer DTV. Every episode of the “Express” since 2009 can be found at www.ohsse.com.

Last school year more than 7,000 student-athletes from 345 high schools in 20 sports were mentioned or featured on the program.
