“Capitol Broadcasting sets the standard for media in the Triangle area, and has always been a good friend of our team,” said Waddell. “We are pleased to have reached an agreement to keep 99.9 FM The Fan the radio home of the Hurricanes.”
The Fan will continue to carry play-by-play calls of Hurricanes games as it has since its inception in October 2007. The station also will continue to produce its popular pre- and post-game shows, Stormfront and Aftermath, surrounding each game.
“Our stations strive to bring fans the best in sports radio, and that starts with in-depth coverage of the market’s only major-league franchise,” said Dennis Glasgow, operations manager/program director for 99.9 FM The Fan. “Capitol Broadcasting is committed to this relationship with the Hurricanes, and will continue to provide hockey fans with engaging content on TV, online and, of course, on the radio.”
