WCMC-FM 99.9 Genuine Country Becomes Home of Hurricanes Radio Network
The Stanley Cup winning Carolina Hurricanes have a new radio home at CBC’s WCMC-FM.
CBC’s newest radio station, WCMC-FM, will now be a home to more than country music. On Thursday, June 28, 2007, the Carolina Hurricanes announced Capitol Broadcasting Company will be the new flagship radio station for the hockey team.
Beginning with the 2007-2008 season, WCMC will broadcast all of the team’s pre-season and regular-season and post-season games. WCMC will also produce and broadcast weekly programming focused on the Hurricanes as part of the three-year agreement.
