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.

he was an ass but you are wrong as well. this has nothing to do with 730 picking app over uncc for ratings. this has everything to do with the apps state athletic department being smart and understanding that the charlotte market is important enough to pay what they had to not only outbid uncc for games but getting additional coverage as well.

Whiteboard, stop taking the internet so serious. It's good thing for the App fans in South Charlotte but far from some sort of game changer.

If it's not a big deal why be concerned with it then?
You wouldn't think it's the end of the world, but ninernation.net almost has that mood. Guess it puts your only viable option as fnz. Their signal is so weak I lose it driving out of my driveway.
Do like the added programming App State will let them use. Will ensure that we have 3.5 hours of pregame shows before each football game. You can drive from Charlotte to Boone twice in that time period, or from Columbia,SC; so will be hyped when fans get to the games.

3.5 hours before the game is hour two or three of tailgate time. But I do like listening to the pregame.

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?

For sports talk; yes.

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

ESPN being a gleaming example.

Probably for the same reasons you post on a message board about sports. Of course message boards are mainly composed of rational, non biased folks who never go over the top like most radio hosts......03-lmfao
Local sports talk is informative about the teams you probably follow, national shows are not real interesting to me.

Yup, I do.

I have blue tooth in my car, but only listen to my music on my phone for long trips where I don't feel like finding a station on the radio as I move from one coverage area to another.

I have XM/Sirius in my car too, but rarely listen to it, unless I'm on long trips, even then it's rare. But I will if I get bored with my music on my phone.

My wife listens to NPR just about all the time. She even has the volume cranked, which I don't understand how you can jam out to NPR.

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.

Well dang, UNCC has a football team now? 05-stirthepot

730 is expanding their coverage with new towers. Do anyone think ESPN would affiliate with a media outlet that doesn't have intentions on being the best in that market? The 610 personalities could make a run for first place on the all arrogant jerk list.

We switched to 2.5 hours of pregame for home games this year and it worked really well. I wish we would do it more for away games.

And to school if you go to UNCC.
