Streaming ACC Talk Radio

Sports fans in the Triangle are familiar with the local sports radio scene, and some very good sports talk on both 850am and 620am. Word now that starting October 3rd, they will begin streaming live over the net. This is great news for ACC fans outside the triangle, or those inside where AM reception is sometimes iffy. My guess is that only the local shows, and not network shows will be available on the streams. While I don't listen much outside basketball season, I think most of these guys are great broadcasters and well worth the listen, especially before big games, or when there are developing stories and you just can't get enough talk about it.

The line-ups are at

I could go the rest of my life without hearing Jim Rome's show again. I actually like him and he knows his stuff, but the style he's chosen for the show just irritates me too much. But the local guys, including Adam Gold, Chris Clark, Gordon Miller, Morgan Patrick, and Joe Ovies are all really good.

Beat me to the punch on this one... I saw yesterday that Oct 3 is also the launch date for 99.9 The Fan. Coincedence? I think not...

Are there any stories or info out there about the expected show lineup for 99.9?

Nothing much so far... Mark Roberts is leaving WRAL to do the pre-game and post game for the 'Canes and former Pack Tight End Mark Thomas will be part of the 3-7 weekday slot. I also noticed that Dane Huffman is now listed as managing editor of the sports dept at WRAL... wonder if he'll make it over to radio?
