Triangle sports radio station 99.9 The Fan has announced two significant changes to the weekday roster of on-air talent and shows.
Adam Gold, co-host of “Adam & Joe” in the afternoon drive time slot (3 to 7 p.m.) for the last decade, will shift to be the solo host for a new midday show. “The Adam Gold Show” will air weekdays from noon to 3 p.m. on 99.9 The Fan and stream live audio and video at WRALSportsFan.com and in the WRALSportsFan app.
Taking over for Gold in afternoon drive will be local sportswriter Joe Giglio, formerly of the News & Observer in Raleigh. Giglio will also be a key contributor to sports reporting for WRAL-TV and WRALSportsFan.com.
Gold takes over for “The David Glenn Show” that originated via Curtis Media Group in Raleigh and that aired for the last decade on 99.9 The Fan.
Giglio, who has covered and written about NC State and UNC among other local sports in The Triangle over the past 20 years, inherits Gold’s spot and will join current afternoon drive personality Joe Ovies weekday afternoons from 3 to 6 p.m.
Gold, who has been in The Triangle for over 20 years, will continue as Carolina Hurricanes reporter with duties that include on-air interviews and analysis, plus previews, recaps, video diaries and hosting Capitol Broadcasting Company’s most popular podcast, “Canes Corner.”
Giglio in addition to co-hosting the three-hour daily radio talk show, will contribute daily sports content for WRAL-TV, WRALSportsFan.com and social media platforms.
Dennis Glasgow, program and operations director of 99.9 The Fan says, “It’s not often that you have the unique opportunity to get better when moving an air personality of Adam Gold’s stature to another time slot and also add a sports reporting vet like Joe Giglio to an already established show, so we’re very fortunate. In the end our listeners are the big winners.”
“We’re really enthusiastic about the unique perspective that Joe Giglio will bring to our sports coverage. His vast knowledge and experience will bolster our reporting efforts. He will serve as a true cross-platform expert, rotating from radio to TV to digital in this specialized role,” said Rick Gall, WRAL news director.
99.9 The Fan is part of a very extensive and impressive list of sports radio & audio platforms for Capitol Broadcasting in the Raleigh-Durham market. This includes Buzz Sports Radio (WCMC-HD2) 620 The Ticket (WDNC-AM) along with live video streaming of local programs on WRALSportsFan.com, the WRALSportsFan app, Facebook, Twitch, Roku, Amazon Firestick and Apple TV on the WRAL-TV app. WRAL-TV is the Triangle’s most watched television station, creating more than 10 hours of local news every weekday.
