We found that they do have Baseline-to-baseline coverage on RUSH Radio 94.5 FM, with the Tar Heel Sports Network….Started with Jones Angell at 11am on Day One, with the Thursday pre-game from the Greensboro Coliseum….Woody Durham said he feels that the tournament should be held in Greensboro every year…..

Radio coverage for the 2011 ACC Tournament in Greensboro

The opening part of this is re-printed from previous years of the tournament:

Who is your favorite radio announcer????? Back in the day you had Woody Durham and Mick Mixon doing all the games of the ACC men’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.

Let’s take a look at the lineup for this year’s coverage throughout the area and wherever you can pick up a radio station in your car, bar or very far away from the maddening crowds.

Here’s what we have found to be the coverage so far this year for 2011:

600 WSJS: They are carrying the games from the Wolfpack Sports Network. Gary Hahn and Tony Haynes due up for N.C. State-Maryland….

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 IMG College Network.

790 the Ball: GONE

850AM KIX Radio: Used to be the Sports Buzz, but now they have Charley Pride with “Kiss an Angel Good Morning” and Blondie with “The Tide is High and I’m moving on”….They also carry Charlie Brown’s “Up on the Beach” and other syndicated programs and we should look to them to still have Duke broadcasts with Bob Harris, John Roth and John Rose….

920AM WPCM: Laying on the Beach with Byron Tucker, Marshall Tucker and Professor John Hook and a sprinkle of Charlie Brown and Dee Brockwell thrown in for good measure….WPCM is the station for Elon sports during the season….

1110 WBT Charlotte: Rush Limbaugh

1150 WBAG: All games 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…Joe Gray and his crew have been very steady, going this same route over the past several seasons….

1200AM: Now a part of the Triad Sports Network with no ACC coverage…..Carries Campbell University during the hoops season….

1230AM WMFR: Triad Sports Network and no ACC coverage….Carries High Point University during the season….

1260AM WKXR: N.C. State Wolfpack Network….All games on the air in the Asheboro area and surrounding portions of Randolph County…

1300AM: Tar Heel Sports Network…Don’t know where this was coming from, but it was making the daytime rounds/sounds…

1320AM: Was Radio Disney last year and this year part of Triad Sports Network and no ACC coverage….Carries UNCG during the season….

1360AM WCHL: Tar Heel Sports Network…All games LIVE in Chapel Hill proper….

1440AM: Tar Heel Sports Network….Games on in Lexington and this station is now part of the KOOL Music Network, so that might change their approach when it comes to carrying all of the games as they have in the past….Bob and The Shark will have the final say-so…..Steve Finegan will break up the fight that might develop over full-coverage or part-time basketball….(Bob vs. The Shark, and I’m taking The Shark…..)

K-LOVE 94.1 FM: No games…Used to be part of the Tar Heel Sports Network….

RUSH 94.5 FM: RUSH has 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 boat because the steering wheel and the anchor belong to Mr. Durham and don’t you fans forget it….He has been calling these games for nearly 40 years and he has earned the right to have the first and last word and if you don’t believe me, ask Woody…..

98.1 FM WBRF Galax, Virginia: Using primarily the IMG College Network with play-by-play men and Dave Odom for the games…Wake Forest-Boston College with Stan Cotten and The Dinger doing the announcing. Stan and Mark will be on board for all Wake Forest games from the tournament…(More than one Wake game from the Coliseum?)

Formerly Country Legends 98.3 FM now Hispanic LaRaza: They will carry the Duke games only with Bob(Roberto) Harris, John(Juan) Roth and John(Juan) Rose….Bob is a legend when it comes to college basketball on the radio….

101.1 FM WZTK: FM Talk 101.1 will carry Wake Forest games only with Stan Cotten and Mark Freidinger.
