Gaston Rhinos Sports Shows!

With the return of athletics to Gaston College, we are extremely happy to add to our programming line-up two new shows, From the Horn and The Thundering Rhinos Sports Review, which are both hosted by former NBA basket player and Duke University basketball MVP, Gene Banks.  Mr. Banks is currently Special Advisor to the President for Athletics & Advancement at the college.

From the Horn is a five to seven minute weekly sports update that airs on Thursday at 4:30 p.m.  The intent of this show is to share the latest scores and summaries of games played by the Gaston Rhinos along with that of high school and professional teams that are of interest to our listeners and the communities the station is licensed to serve.   

The Thundering Rhinos Sports Review is a thirty minute show that airs twice on Mondays at 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.  This program provides more comprehensive coverage of Gaston Rhinos sports with a rundown of recent games and their outcomes along with pertinent soundbites and interviews with coaches and players.  The show also includes a segment titled, “From the Archives” with Richard Walker and the weekly selection of a high school athlete to be the recipient of our Gaston Rhinos Rising Star Award.   

The Award will be presented to a high student deserving of recognition for his/her outstanding athletic performance, academic accomplishment and school or community service.  Students will be selected for the award based on the following criteria:  Athletic Achievements:  A student athlete whose performance was the most critical to the team.  Someone who has demonstrated exceptional skill and ability in his/her respective sport.  Academic Standing: GPA 3.0+ and School or Community Service:  A student athlete who assists others in improving their communities through volunteer programs, social groups, outreach centers or after school groups.
