Capitol Sports Vice President George Habel recently unveiled some big news on his blog, Note to Self. Here’s what he had to say about a new way to hear the Durham Bulls on the radio.
Bulls on FM @ 99.3
The heritage Bull City station (The Buzz | 620 AM) has a strong daytime signal in central and eastern NC, but at night – when most Bulls games are played – it’s beset by interference.
The Federal Communications Commission has authorized us to improve our coverage with two FM translators – limited power transmitters designed to serve a single community. That’s why we have acquired two translators. One will cover Durham and the other will be beamed at Raleigh listeners. The first station our engineers have powered up is 99.3 covering Raleigh.
Program one of your radio pre-sets to 99.3. You’ll get all of the Buzz sports programming: Mike and Mark (The World’s Strongest Morning Show), Dan Patrick, Jim Rome, Dan Le Batard, Duke University sports and CBS Sports Radio.
Stay tuned for more info on the Durham translator later in the summer.
Thanks to CS’ George Habel for this capcom story.
