Capitol Broadcasting Extends Panthers Partnership

The NFL’s Carolina Panthers and Capitol Broadcasting Company announce they have expanded their partnership to air live Panthers games in the Triangle region on WRAL-FM “MIX 101.5” beginning this fall. Games will be simulcast on “Buzz Sports Radio” (WDNC-AM, Durham; W283DE, Durham and WCMC-HD2, Holly Springs). CBC will continue its local, dedicated coverage and analysis of the Carolina Panthers on WCMC-FM “99.9 The Fan” and “Buzz Sports Radio” along with audio streaming and podcasts. The company says this contract extension through 2027 will make play-by-play broadcasts for all pre-season, regular season and post-season games, as well as the weekly “Panther Talk” and daily “Panthers Update” programs, available to listeners on one of the strongest FM signals in North Carolina.
