1400AM:WKEW carried the Wake Forest Sports Network from IMG….…Stan Cotton and Mark Friedinger….Wake Forest was here, but their season has ended and now the talk is former Page Pirate Danny Manning might be joining Patton and Turner, as in patting the streets and turning the corners(Walking)….

1440AM: Tar Heel Sports Network….Have been carrying Heels for many years and used to carry them on the Hilton Family’s 94.1 FM and now 94.1 is part of the K-LOVE Network…UNC is on MAGIC 99.9 FM and 1440 AM down in Lexington, where Willie Edwards held down the morning show after Max McGann pulled up stakes and went to the ZOO/WZOO Asheboro and was helping out Steve Finnegan…Now “The Shark” from 1440/94.1 is at the ZOO on the weekends…Willie Edwards has joined the sales force at WTOB in Winston-Salem…

94.5 FM:Tar Heel Sports Network…..”Home of the Heels”…..UNC is Here in the Triad…..I think they are still calling this station, WPTI…A talker by day and let’s play some sports at night…Will carry ALL UNC games during the tournament….

98.1 FM WBRF Galax…..Stan Cotten and The Dinger/Mark Friedinger doing the announcing. Stan and Mark WERE on board for Wake Forest games from the tournament…WAKE FOREST was Here…This station is a favorite of many in the Triad, since they have that old Bluegrass feeling to their musical message…They had a guy on Saturday mornings that really had a strong following among the Classic Country Music fans and the Bluegrass Bunch…Have not heard anything about this character in years, but he may still be kicking…The guy sounded half crazy, but he had a strong/loyal following and I think his name was J.D. Higgins….

98.3 FM the Hispanic LaRaza: They will carry the Duke games only….(Duke games in English with no translation necessary.)

105.7 FM WVBZ:N.C. State games only in the Triad…N.C. STATE is here….

Things have sure changed since back in the days of John Pritchett, Bob Hogewood, Vin Baker, Todd Hollingsworth, Wally Harris, Ty Babaloniah, Suzy Quatro, Chrissy Norman, Raleigh/Charlie Durham , Marty Finnerty, Barry Goldberg and all of those great ACC announcers on TV and Radio in the past…Times have really changed and we seriously miss the names like Mike Hogewood, Wally Ausley, Bob Harris, Gene Overby, Woody Durham, Gary Dornburg, ‘Wild’ Bill Curry and the greats from the years gone by of ACC Men’s Basketball….Hogewood did a great job on TV with both the men’s and women’s ACC games…..But now the times are different and we should probably just leave it at that and head on back to the barn….WOW, have the times have changed…I haven’t watched any of the games from the tournament this year and just barely caught the last part of the N.C. State-Clemson game, since I was trying to get the word on John Newman III from Greensboro Day, and I wanted to see if N.C. State had anything left n the tank and they did and fortunately, N.C. State did not tank in their first game of the tournament….

This continues to be your best source for the local sports scene, no matter what BIG event is going on, but boy, things have changed as the games are not as important as they used to be…..Now a days, the players are just hoping they can get out of college as fast as they can, and get on to the NBA and get that big fat check…Maybe they should have stayed away from basketball and played volleyball instead…You just never, never, know….
