HURRICANES ANNOUNCE RADIO AFFILIATION WITH Y102.9

Ticket deal in partnership with station to provide for more than 1,700 seats available for $10.29

RALEIGH, NC – Matt West, Vice President of Business Operations for the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced a two-year flagship radio agreement with the Curtis Media Group and Y-102.9 FM. All Hurricanes games in the preseason, regular season and playoffs will be heard on Y102.9 – WWMY – Carolina’s Greatest Hits, along with the rest of the Hurricanes Radio Network. The Curtis Media Group is comprised of 15 locally owned and operated radio stations.

In partnership with the affiliate agreement, the Hurricanes and Y102.9 are presenting a new ticket program for Hurricanes fans. More than 1,700 seats, close to 10 percent of the capacity of the RBC Center, will be available on an individual game basis for just $10.29 each. The seats are in eight upper-level sections, a savings of 51% off the gate price in several of the areas.

“The Curtis Media Group has been a terrific supporter of Hurricanes hockey,” said West. “We are thrilled to continue our partnership. We believe that Y102.9 FM represents a great lifestyle and demographic fit with our fan base. We are also extremely excited to present a ticket initiative in conjunction with Y102.9 that provides a great value to our fans.”

“We're beyond excited to continue our special relationship with the Hurricanes,” said Phil Zachary, Executive Vice President of the Curtis Media Group. “Y102.9 provides the best broadcast signal yet for Triangle-area 'Canes fans, and as in years past, we'll bolster our team coverage with season-long content on other key Curtis Media stations.”

Chuck Kaiton returns as the play-by-play announcer for the team’s radio network, a position he has held since the organization joined the National Hockey League in the 1979-80 season. The Hockey Hall of Fame awarded Kaiton with the Foster Hewitt Award on Nov. 8, 2004, making him the 26th NHL broadcaster to receive the distinction since the Hall of Fame began recognizing broadcasters in 1984. The award honors broadcasters who make outstanding contributions to their profession during their careers, and its winners are selected by the NHL Broadcasters Association.

In addition to his work with the Hurricanes, Kaiton has served as President of the NHL Broadcasters Association for the past 18 seasons (1986-2004). A graduate of the University of Michigan, Kaiton began his broadcasting career announcing Wolverine sports. He went on to cover the University of Wisconsin sports teams and was named Wisconsin’s Sportscaster of the Year in 1979. Kaiton and his wife, Mary, reside in Raleigh and have three sons: Nelson, Chuck and Russell.
