Drive This! was an authentic sports radio talk show produced from The Score Television Network studios in Toronto, Canada. It ended on April 9, 2009, when Richard Garner left Hardcore sports Radio.

The program was broadcast weekdays from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. ET on Hardcore Sports Radio Sirius channel 98 with various repeat times and simulcast on The Score Television Network except on Tuesdays, since January 7, 2008.[1]

Format and authenticity[edit]

It was hosted by Richard Garner, with co-hosts Cam Stewart and Sarah Meehan with appearances from Gabriel Morency.[2] The most interesting, bizarre, hilarious, hot button issues from the world of sports were discussed in a completely uncensored, thought provoking and genuinely passionate manner unlike any other sports radio show.[1] On Television however, most of the profanity is bleeped. The 2 hour program consists of 6 segments:

Segment 1: 4:00 p.m. - 4:14 p.m. ET (approx.)

Segment 2: 4:17 p.m. - 4:27 p.m. ET (approx.)

Segment 3: 4:31 p.m. - 4:51 p.m. ET (approx.)

Segment 4: 5:00 p.m. - 5:11 p.m. ET (approx.)

Segment 5: 5:16 p.m. - 5:31 p.m. ET (approx.)

Segment 6: 5:36 p.m. - 5:51 p.m. ET (approx.)

Part of the show consisted of callers, usually regulars voicing their opinions on the topics being discussed on the show or simply commenting on the show itself. E-mails sent in by listeners were also often read on the program, especially those who tend to criticize the hosts or the program. The first three segments also included a TV-only feature called Txt TV, where people could send in messages via SMS or an online form, and discuss anything sports related, not always pertaining to the current topic, and vote in daily polls.

On Fridays, Sarah Meehan surprised her co-hosts with a special secret guest and interesting story which reminded people why they loved sports so much. The segment was entitled "Storytime with Sarah".
