Mike has been covering Oklahoma sports for 29 years in both radio and television. The 1986 OU graduate considers Oklahoma City one of the best sports markets in the country and loves the passion the fans have for the Sooners, Cowboys and Thunder. Steely believes a sports show should be informative and fun. Never too serious, “After all, most of us are just a bunch of dorks lucky to be getting paid to do this.” When not hard at “work,” Steely spends his spare time man crushing on Tiger Woods and hanging out with his sweetheart Shea and their four dogs. “Lou Gehrig wasn’t the luckiest man in the world. I am. I’ve been to Augusta National twice.”
Andrew Gilman grew up in Oklahoma before heading to the University of Kansas. Andrew has worked at newspapers in Kansas, Tennessee as well as The Oklahoman before covering the Thunder and Oklahoma football for FoxSportsSouthwest. Andrew got into the radio business when The Franchise began as a regular contributor for Thunder and Oklahoma football news and started full-time with the morning show in June of 2016. When not on the air, Andrew likes to play golf and be around his wife Cassie, son HJ and bulldog Daisy.
Jessi began her radio career right here in Oklahoma City, covering many stations in the market. With over a decade of rocking music radio, she was able to interview artists, celebs and people in the community. After dabbling a bit in the television industry as a Feature Reporter, Jessi was able to jump back into radio with sports radio great, Mike Steely. She spends her spare time eating peanut butter and talking herself into going to the gym. Jessi shares her couch with her brainiac man crush, Gary, her singing-dancing-violinist daughter, Alex, and two dogs, Sissy and Sadie-Mae.
