Canes, 99.9 FM The Fan Agree to Three-Year Extension
RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has reached an agreement on a three-year extension with Capitol Broadcasting Company to keep 99.9 FM The Fan as the flagship station of the Hurricanes Radio Network. The agreement continues partnership through the 2014-15 NHL season.

“Capitol Broadcasting has been a good friend and partner of the Hurricanes since the team’s arrival in North Carolina,” said Rutherford. “We’re pleased that 99.9 The Fan will continue as the team’s home on the radio.”

The Fan will continue to carry play-by-play calls of all Hurricanes games as it has since its inception in October 2007. The station also will continue to produce ancillary Hurricanes programming, including its pre- and post-game shows, Stormfront and Aftermath, surrounding each game.

“We are pleased to extend our partnership with the Carolina Hurricanes,” said Jason Dixon, operations manager/program director for 99.9 FM The Fan. “Our commitment to this partnership goes beyond all preseason, regular season and playoff games, as well as Canes Corner. We will be using all of our platforms, including web, social media mobile and, of course, radio, to provide Canes fans with all of the coverage that they expect from ‘The Official Station of Caniac Nation.’

“The Hurricanes’ broadcasts are not only great entertainment for our listeners, but a great way for our clients to reach the affluent sports listener. The Canes broadcasts are consistently near the top of nighttime listening.”
