Talk about businesses from baseball to broadcasting and you'll find a path back to CBC. A Triangle institution, CBC owns three television stations, multiple radio stations, a minor league baseball team, a satellite data provider and an experimental digital data delivery company.
Capitol Broadcasting Company consistently leads in the fields of new technology, embracing the Internet and digital broadcasting before the equipment was widely used. Through our digital media division, we keep making new strides in ways to use mobile media, always thinking towards the future.
CBC owns three television stations in North Carolina from the Triangle to the coast. One NBC affiliate, one FOX station affiliate and one independent station make up the CBC television family. These stations win awards for community service, excellence in broadcasting, and ground-breaking original programs. CBC has a long history of innovation in television broadcasting and is respected throughout the industry as a pioneer in technology.
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.
CBC not only creates information to broadcast, we work on the cutting edge of ways to get the information to the consumer. CBC's Microspace Communications is the largest provider of satellite data in the world and serves as a testing ground for new & better ways to deliver data.
In North Carolina, CBC presents minor league baseball and ACC sports to avid, dedicated fans. Hailed for a family atmosphere and affordable prices, CBC's baseball club, the Durham Bulls, plays in one of the top venues in Triple-A baseball, Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Through a joint venture with Learfield Sports, Wolfpack Sports Properties handles all of the marketing for the athletic department at North Carolina State University, home of the Wolfpack.
CBC is not only in the business of maintaining, but of creating. Through CBC Real Estate, CBC develops property across the Triangle, building a new state-of-the-art ballpark for the Durham Bulls in downtown Durham, adding the Diamond View office building in right field, and taking on the monstrous task of renovating the 16-acre American Tobacco Historic District across Blackwell Street.
