Capitol Broadcasting is launching a 24/7 local sports television station in 2022. WRAL Sports + will be central North Carolina’s home for live and local sports. Area sports fans can turn to WRAL Sports+ for everything from live sports talk (from our friends at 99.9 The Fan) to live events.
WRAL Sports+ will carry NC Central University Basketball, Durham Bulls Baseball, NC Courage/NCFC Soccer, HighSchoolOT Live and much more!
“Capitol Broadcasting has been intertwined with local and regional sports for decades and this is the next step in the company’s continued commitment to area athletes and fans,” said WRAL-TV Integrated Sales Manager Brad Schaible.
The station launched on January 4, 2022. Full market coverage is available over the air and on OTT and beginning in February will also be available on Spectrum cable. The WRAL Sports+ team will provide 8 hours of live, local sports talk each day from the new audio/video studio.
“Television, radio, and digital team members have been collaborating on the launch of the station since the end of the summer,” explained Schaible. “It has been a very collaborative process as Creative, Engineering, Operations, Sales, and Digital staffers have combined their unique knowledge sets to do something truly unique – launch a new television station.”
