I'll take a break from Matsui Madness at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park and post on another favorite subject - Sports Radio.

Harkening back to March Madness and the Triangle's affection for college hoops, we had very strong ratings during the NCAA tourney. Sports blogger (and number cruncher) Clay Travis has 99.9 The Fan tied for number three sports radio station in the country:


Another development on the bleeding edge of HD Radio...

We just premiered a new sports outlet - 99.9 (HD-3) The Ticket. This station is unconventional. You need an HD receiver. And you can listen online via PC or smartphone. 

The Ticket is affiliated with Yahoo! Sports Radio and they serve up Tim Brando from 10a-1p each day. The new HD station is also the home of Carolina Railhawks soccer and Appalachian State sports.

The Ticket gives us the opportunity to do more local play-by-play. This past Saturday we aired the state championship high school lacrosse match. 

Digital radio...more sports...more local programming...that's the ticket!
