99.9 The Fan now will have 9 hours of continuous weekday local sports talk in The Triangle
WCMC-FM 99.9 The Fan is pleased to announce the addition of ‘SportsChannel8: The Radio Show’ to its lineup starting Thursday, August 15th that will air weekdays 10a-12noon. The Show will also stream audio/video at WRALsportsfan.com & the WRALsportsfan App.
Hosted by long-time North Carolinian Hayes Permar, along with co-hosts Josh Goodson, Brian Geisinger, contributors Ben Swain and Weather Moose, SportsChannel8 is being elevated from its Saturday morning 10a-12noon timeslot, this change will give 99.9 The Fan listeners 9 straight hours of local sports talk programming weekdays.
Dennis Glasgow, 99.9 The Fan Program/Operations Director says, “We couldn’t be more excited to add the SportsChannel8 brand to our weekday lineup. Not only do we add another two hours a day of outstanding local content, but we’ll also be offering probably one of the most engaging, entertaining and hyper-local shows I have every heard in my 6 years here in The Triangle.”
Host Hayes Permar says, “We are incredibly excited and humbled to be a part of the already outstanding lineup 99.9 The Fan offers listeners every weekday. Our crew is made up of guys who all grew up and became sports fans in North Carolina, and our show has and will continue to reflect that. When we started SportsChannel8 about 5 years ago, I’d have thought you would see a 16-seed upset a 1-seed in the NCAA Tournament before we’d get a radio show supported by Capitol Broadcasting, and, well, I guess I was right. Thanks, Virginia.”
Along with the addition of SportsChannel8 The Radio Show, 99.9 The Fan will continue with its current and award-winning lineup that includes: ESPN Radio’s Golic & Wingo, The David Glenn Show, and Adam & Joe. Due to the change in programming, ESPN Radio’s Dan Le Batard show heard currently from 10a-12p on 99.9 The Fan, will shift and be expanded to all three hours live from 10a-12p on Capitol Broadcasting owned-Buzz Sports Radio from 10a-1p.
