99.9 The Fan (WCMC-FM) is conducting its third ‘Fan Town Hall’ featuring Mike Krzyzewski, coach of the 2015 NCAA Men’s College Basketball champion Duke Blue Devils. Krzyzewski is in his 36th year of head coaching at Duke University and has taken the team to five national championships. The Q&A session will take place on Thursday, July 2, 2015, from 7-8 p.m. at WRAL-TV, Raleigh.
The 60-minute specialty show will have limited commercial interruptions and will be hosted by WRAL-TV’s Jeff Gravley and 99.9 The Fan’s Joe Ovies. Gravley and Ovies will ask Coach K about the season, his coaching success at Duke and with Team USA, the state of basketball from high school through the pros, recruiting challenges and much more. They will also sprinkle in questions submitted by the public via social media using #FanTownHall.
The event is not open to the public, but it will be air live on WRAL (Ch. 5.2 or Time Warner Cable Ch. 1250), on 99.9 FM The Fan and on WRALSportsFan.com.
