The third installment of 99.9 The Fan’s ‘Fan Town Hall’ series took place on Thursday, July 2, 2015, featuring Mike Krzyzewski, coach of the 2015 NCAA Men’s College Basketball champion Duke Blue Devils. The 60-minute Q&A session had Coach K addressing questions about his own success as well as basketball in general.
“It was a huge success,” said 99.9 The Fan Account Executive Luanne Lane.
The Coach K talked about a variety of topics, answering questions from hosts WRAL-TV Sports Anchor Jeff Gravley and 99.9 The Fan Talk Host Joe Ovies.
The event aired live from 7-8pm on 99.9 The Fan and WRAL (Ch 5.2 or Time Warner Cable Ch. 1250) and live-streamed on WRALSportsFan.com. The Fan Town Hall re-aired the following Saturday evening at 7pm on WRAL.
About fifty invited guests enjoyed dinner in Café 550, CBC’s employee breakroom, before the event and then participated in the live broadcast in WRAL’s Studio A. Listeners and viewers at home shared comments and questions on Twitter & Facebook using #FanTownHall.
“We love the partnership we have with the sports department at WRAL and with WRALSportsFan.com,” said Lane. “Together, we are doing big things!”
