Local Sports Radio Mainstays Switch Stations, Timeslots

Capitol Broadcasting Company (CBC) has announced that Mark & Mike, The Insiders, will be switching time slots and stations with Adam & Joe, effective Thursday, February 18, 2010.    

logosAdam Gold & Joe Ovies will be moving into the 99.9 FM The Fan afternoon slot (3-7 PM) while Mark Thomas and Mike Maniscalco, The Insiders, are headed to the morning slot (6-9 AM) on 620 AM The Buzz.

Adam & Joe have become staples on Triangle sports radio, working together for six years prior to joining CBC in October. Gold has been in sports radio for over a decade, spending most of his career on the air across the Triangle. Ovies served as general manager at the North Carolina State University student station, WKNC, prior to joining Adam & Joe

A cornerstone of CBC’s sports radio programming since the launch of 99.9 FM The Fan in 2007, Mark Thomas and Mike Maniscalco bring a distinct local flavor to area sports coverage through The Insiders.  Thomas, a native of Smithfield, N.C., was a tight end on the football team at N.C. State University and played several years professionally.  Maniscalco, also a renowned local radio personality, will continue his role as the pre- and post-game host of the Carolina Hurricanes games on 99.9 FM The Fan, the flagship radio station for the Triangle’s NHL franchise. 

“This change is just another positive step towards further growth for our sports radio stations,” says Operations Manager Dave Shore.  “There are great opportunities for each of these programs in new timeslots and we’re excited to see what we can accomplish with both shows moving forward.”

In August, CBC announced it would expand its radio sports coverage in the Triangle by acquiring 620 The Bull (WDNC), 1550 (WCLY) and the rights to the sports programming on 850 The Buzz (WRBZ).  The addition of these stations complemented Capitol’s 99.9 FM The Fan which signed on with an all sports format in Fall, 2007.  Sports Programming in the Triangle can now be found on the following CBC properties: 99.9 FM The Fan – ESPN Radio, 620 AM The Buzz and 1550 AM – ESPN Deportes.  Long time sports radio market veteran Brian Maloney oversees the three station sports cluster as General Manager.
