Just picked up another update today on the new Wake Forest football station in Winston-Salem and they have plans to bring back Bill Flynn(99.5/WMAG…94.5/RUSH Radio), plus “The Eagle” is looking to have newsman Smith Patterson(WSJS 600AM) in place and they may be considering a move to lock down J.D Higgins(98.1FM) and have him do ‘Calling Carolina’, his look at different roadside destinations across our fine state….Could Jack Murphy be coming on board later on??? He used to work for “The Eagle”, back when 107.5 used that moniker….
from Wikipedia.org as they look at WEGO 980AM:
On July 4, 2012, new owners Ralph Epperson Broadcasting Inc. switched the format from Spanish back to English. The station now is all Local News/Talk and features many of the same local personalities who worked at rival News/Talk Winston-Salem, NC station WSJS-AM 600. The new WEGO-AM 980 is also branded as “The Eagle 980 WEGO-AM”. The goal of the new station is to be VERY live and local to the Winston-Salem community. WEGO-AM 980 is also the brand new flagship radio station of The Wake Forest University Radio Network. The Eagle 980 will now air all football/baseball/basketball games of the W.F.U. Deamon Deacons. WEGO-AM is the sister radio station to 100,000 watt WBRF-FM 98.1 in Galax, VA and WPAQ-AM 740 in Mount Airy, NC.
