99.9 The Fan’s Adam Gold & Joe Ovies have been named to Radio Ink’s 2017 list of the Best Local Sports Talkers in America. The pair have been a mainstay on the list for the past several years.
“Over the past 4 years, the show (along with the WCMC-FM) has doubled its ratings, and Adam & Joe’s afternoon drive show is now one of the most listened to programs in The Triangle with not only Men, but Adults 25-54,” said 99.9 The Fan Operations Manager/Program Director Dennis Glasgow. “I know that Adam & Joe, and Producer Alec Campbell are very grateful for this recognition and feel blessed that we have such an excellent team to sell, promote and keep them on the air.”
Radio Ink takes nominations for the Best Local Sports Talkers in America online. They then take that list and interview program directors, market managers, Sports Talk experts and radio executives. They also take into account ratings and revenue among other factors in making their final decision.
