CBC began as a radio station, WRAL-AM, in 1938, and became WRAL-FM on September 6, 1946, the area’s first FM station. As the oldest continuously operated FM station in this part of the country, that station still broadcasts today, as a contemporary mix of music. MIX 101.5 WRAL-FM holds the #1 fundraiser for Duke’s Children’s Hospital each year with a three-day radiothon. WRAL-FM also became the first radio station on the east coast to broadcast a high-definition (HD) signal. CBC also has a powerhouse of sports talk radio stations led by WCMC-FM 99.9 The Fan, also in the Raleigh-Durham market. In the spring of 2012 CBC launched four sports talk HD radio stations connected with its sports on the AM & FM dials.
