The opening part of this is re-printed from March of 2009:
Who is your favorite radio announcer????? Back in the day you had Woody Durham and Mick Mixon doing all the games of the ACC menâ€™s basketball tournament, going wire-to-wire, Thursday through Sunday.
The same could be said for Bob Harris and Danny Highsmith/Mike Waters, Gene Overby and Glen Scott, and Wally Ausley and Gary Dornberg. All the schools were doing all the games for UNC, Duke, Wake and State. The announcers called them all, from start to finish.
Letâ€™s take a look at the lineup for this yearâ€™s coverage throughout the Triad/Triangle/Charlotte areas and wherever you can pick up a radio station in your car, bar or very far away from the maddening crowds.
Hereâ€™s what we have found to be the coverage so far this year for 2010:
600 WSJS: They are carrying all games with the Wolfpack Sports Network on the air. Boston College-Virginia coverage with Dave Shore and Mike Maniscalco. These guys are from 99.9 the Fan/620 The Buzz in Raleigh/Durham. Gary Hahn and Tony Haynes due up later on for the N.C. State gamesâ€¦..
620 the Buzz:The Tar Heel Sports Network is on the air with Woody Durham, Eric Montross and Jones Angell. Bob Harris and John Roth will be on board for the Duke games from the ISP Network.
790 the Ball/WBLO: Jim Rome is on the air and no games. PrimeTime with the PackMan later on this afternoon with loads of ACC Tournament talk and they might have Mike Giminski on today.
850AM KIX Radio:Used to be the Sports Buzz, but now we have Charley Pride with “Kiss an Angel Good Morning” and Blondie with “The Tide is High and I’m moving on”….We are too, but this is a pretty good station with straight non-stop music and very few commercials….
920AM WPCM:Up on the Beach with Byron Tucker, Marshall Tucker and Professor John Hook and a sprinkle of Charlie Brown thrown in for good measure….
1110 WBT Charlotte:Rush Limbaugh
1150 WBAG: All games are on with the Tar Heel Sports Network. Woody Durham, Eric Montross and Jones Angell at the helm. They will use the Duke Network with Bob Harris and John Roth for Blue Devil games only…
1200AM: Dave Ramsey Show….We will hear N.C. State games with Hahn and Haynes while the Wolfpack remains in the tourney…
1230AM WMFR:Fred Thompson Show with Dom Dijano filling in for Fred…..
1260AM WKXR:N.C. State Wolfpack Network….All games on the air in the Asheboro area…
1300AM:Tar Heel Sports Network…Don’t know where this was coming from, but it was making the daytime rounds/sounds…
1360AM WCHL:Tar Heel Sports Network…All games we assume in Chapel Hill proper….
1440AM:Tar Heel Sports Network….Games on and we take it they are all on in Lexington….
1660AM:Tar Heel Sports Network….Coming in from Charlotte and used to be all sports with WFNZ….We would think all games are on as they were coming in loud and clear with game one today…
Majic 94.1 FM: All games are on today with the Tar Heel Sports Network. Woody Durham, Eric Montross and Jones Angell at the helm. Woody is really at the helm and you better keep your hands on your side of the car because the steering wheel belongs to the â€œWood Manâ€.
98.1 FM WBRF Galax, Virginia: Using the ISP Network with Bob Harris and Dave Odom for the Virginia-Boston College game. They try and bring a total ACC-type feeling to their coverage on ISP and not just a Wake Forest approach with Stan Cotten and â€œThe Dingerâ€ doing all of the announcing. Stan and Mark will be on board for all Wake Forest games from the tournament…
Country Legends 98.3 FM: They will carry the Duke games only with Bob Harris and John Roth.
101.1 FM WZTK: FM Talk 101.1 will carry Wake Forest games only with Stan Cotten and Mark Freidinger.
101.5 FM WRAL:N.C. State games only…..
