RE: ESPN730 Charlotte to replace UNCC with App State
I do like the fact that Appalachian State negotiated the deal themselves since both schools participate in the IMG network.

Yep, tell that to the millions of people that commute more than 10 minutes to and from work every day.

Do people really listen to radio in their cars these days?

Why make these comments? Our product has been complete crap for the last 10 years. 730 is just trying to get listeners. We aren't providing that with our awful basketball product, and at one time, that was our bread and butter. Their basketball isn't great, but they could probably get comparable numbers as of late. Congrats to the Apps.

As for the quality of signal from 730... I'll let the App fans figure that one out.

For sports talk; yes.

Why listen to sports talk? They tend to be idiots on sports programs anyway.

ESPN being a gleaming example.

Yea because it's not like the vast majority of sports fans are brainless zombies listening to ESPNs take as the word of god... It's not like all we complain about is how espn centric casual fans are like every other minute on this board.... Doesn't matter if they are stupid, the casual fan likes to listen.

RE: ESPN730 Charlotte to replace UNCC with App State
IMG was outbid by App. We'll find out where we are ending up.

Rumor is 610, which is Charlotte's top sports radio station. It's a pretty terrible station full of ACC homers though. 730 was pretty friendly to us while 610 laughs at anyone not in the ACC or SEC.

I don't personally care because I don't listen to the radio. We have all our home games guaranteed on television for the next two years and it is fairly likely that all of our games will be on television this year since none of our away games are more than 3 hours away.

Your flying lawn mower with a transparent gorilla head has swayed me. I forfeit the debate.

730 is great for those in south Charlotte! Our presence in Charlotte is growing, just hired a full time athletic member located here.

730 added an additional tower in 2013 and can be heard even at night in a larger area around CLT.
