DJ name: Rixon Lane
Show name and time: “The Fast Lane”
Fridays, 10 a.m.–12 p.m.
Describe the routine of your show.
I discuss USC and national sports stories of the week and answer listeners’ questions and comments. Usually a guest is featured on each show. We induct an athlete who has done something dumb into the “HumiliNation.” The final segment is “The Last At-Bat” where I spend five minutes ranting on a topic that I think is the most important.
What inspired you to do sports talk radio?
I listened to several sports talk shows and wanted to bring that kind of program to WUSC. USC needed a show that discusses students’ and fans’ opinions, one that covers more than just sports highlights.
Who is your favorite sports talk radio host, announcer or analyst?
ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt. He gives sports insight and fresh opinions while bringing an entertainment value that appeals to listeners who aren’t die-hard sports fans.
Where do you rank the Carolina versus Clemson rivalry?
Carolina vs. Clemson is one of the top ten rivalries in football. They’ve played every year since 1909, and both programs are primed to be top 10 teams for years to come. It wouldn’t surprise me to see Carolina and Clemson both enter the rivalry game undefeated in a few years. In baseball, it’s the best rivalry the sport has. Both teams are frequent participants in the College World Series. With South Carolina winning two national championships, the rivalry has taken on even more meaning.
What’s the best Gamecock sports memory of 2011?
The heart-stopping ten days in Omaha when the Gamecocks captured their second-straight national title. They were far and away the best team in college baseball that year.
