ESPN Radio Teams Up with 99.9 fm/The Fan

We’ve teamed up with the sports juggernaut, ESPN, “the Worldwide Leader in Sports.” On Monday, December 1st at 6am, our sports-talk station, 99.9 FM The Fan, became ESPN Radio’s Triangle affiliate.

ESPN’s top talent, high profile guests, analysis, reporting and play-by-play will compliment our afternoon local shows and Carolina Hurricanes coverage. The affiliation gives The Fan access to ESPN’s college hoops luminaries like Jay Bilas, Hubert Davis and Dickie V - fuel for the hardwood fire that gets us through the winter in these parts.

With ESPN we add MLB and NBA play-by-play to The Fan’s line-up. With our existing Westwood One affiliation we have the NFL and college football and basketball. What a package!

On the web we have redesigned and renamed our sports web site –

Breaking sports news. Radio interviews from The Fan. Video from the WRAL TV5 Sports Department. This is THE website for your on-demand sports fix. Listen to a compelling radio interview while you check your e-mail, read an insider’s blog or view an endless menu of video clips from coaches and players.

Have you bookmarked

99.9 fm. Is it one of your presets?

Thanks. We appreciate your patronage.
