The Buzz @ 80

The latest scoop from George Habel’s ‘Note to Self’ blog:

WDNC was Durham’s first radio station taking to the airwaves in 1934. Eight decades later it’s spreading across the media landscape like kudzu!

This summer we have extended the venerable AM radio station to the FM band with two translators. One covers Raleigh on 99.3 and last week we added 96.5 to serve Durham.

These changes represent an improvement in fidelity and coverage for Duke University sports, Durham Bulls baseball, CBS Sports Radio…and during the daytime for fans of Mike & Mark (6-9am), Dan Patrick (9am-noon), Jim Rome (noon-4pm) and ESPN’s Dan Le Batard (4-7pm).

In your car, on your phone/tablet/PC/TV…
The station is also available to HD Radio listeners (99.9 HD2) and we stream the signal at our website and on our app. Also, you can watch the Mike & Mark morning show on MeTV (WRAZ .2 and TWC 1250.) That’s seven channels of distribution for what used to be one AM radio station. Happy 80th birthday to WDNC!
