Listening to the announcement.

ESPN730's top coverage is now App State. Will do pregame for all FB games, home and away. Will do a 30-minute pregame show with Cobb plus the one-hour The Bottom Line pregame show. Combine that with the regular two-hour pregame, App State will now have three and a half hours of pregame show.

That's just about it right now. Further details will be announced later.

I like this for the fact that I will now be able to listen vis mobile phone now if I'm somewhere not within range of an App broadcast.


And because we're kicking UNCc off the station

Official press release. Also news in that the Yosef Club is establishing a director for the Charlotte area.
BOONE, N.C. — The Appalachian IMG Sports Network and ESPN 730 AM in Charlotte have agreed to a three-year contract that makes ESPN 730 the exclusive radio home of Appalachian State football and men’s basketball in the Charlotte market.

As part of the three-year deal, which begins with the 2014 football season, ESPN 730 will air all Appalachian State football and men’s basketball games, as well as up to five baseball games each season live. The station will also carry the Appalachian IMG Sports Network’s weekly Mountaineer Talk football and basketball coach’s call-in shows and its daily Around The Mountain segment.

In addition, ESPN 730 will air its popular Bottom Line College Gameday Edition show each week live from Appalachian State’s game site, home and away. ESPN 730 will also broadcast a 30-minute program to run prior to the Bottom Line College Gameday Edition that features director of athletics Charlie Cobb and a key figurehead in the college sports culture talking about topical issues in college sports.

With the new 30-minute show and the Bottom Line College Gameday Edition originating from Appalachian State’s game site, Mountaineer football will benefit from three-and-a-half hours of pregame coverage in the Charlotte market each gameday.

The agreement also includes that ESPN 730 will have a presence at Appalachian State athletics events hosted in the Charlotte area throughout the year, including potential games at Bank of America Stadium, Time Warner Cable Arena and BB&T Ballpark, as well as the Yosef Club Spring Tour, Appalachian Alumni Association events and more.

Appalachian State coaches and student-athletes will also be featured in interviews during ESPN 730 drive-time programming and the station will broadcast major athletics department announcements live.

“Over the past four years, Appalachian State athletics has benefited in one of our key markets from the coverage afforded by ESPN 730 and we could not be more excited to take that relationship to the next level,” associate athletics director David Jackson said. “Not only will Appalachian fans in the Charlotte area be able to hear more coverage of Mountaineer football, basketball and baseball than ever before, but this partnership will give Appalachian State a strong marketing push in an area that features a vibrant base of both alumni and current students. (ESPN 730 general manager) Lanny Ford and his staff have been long-time partners of ours and we knew with the impact we are looking to make in the Charlotte market, ESPN 730 was the right place to come.”

“It is always a goal of ours to maximize our exposure in Charlotte — our largest alumni and fan base — and this agreement gives Appalachian State its largest radio presence ever in the Charlotte market,” Cobb said. “We’re grateful for the efforts of David Jackson and Lanny Ford in making this happen and we look forward to a great partnership with ESPN 730 for the next three years and beyond.”

BURNS NAMED REGIONAL ASSOCIATE DEVELOPMENT OFFICER IN CHARLOTTE: In another effort to cultivate and maximize Appalachian State’s presence in the Charlotte market, senior associate athletics director Rick Beasley announced on Wednesday that former Appalachian football student-athlete and Yosef Club president Brian Burns has been named regional associate development officer for the Charlotte area.

In his role, Burns will be responsible for the identification, cultivation, solicitation and stewardship of Appalachian State athletics donors in the Charlotte area on behalf of the Yosef Club. Based out of his hometown of Belmont, N.C., Burns will market Yosef Club and Appalachian athletics events in the Charlotte area and assist the athletics department in promoting Mountaineer athletics in the region.

Burns was a member of Appalachian State’s football program for two seasons prior to his graduation from Appalachian in 1988. He founded Prestige Collision Repair Centers in Charlotte in 1998 and owned and operated the successful business until its sale last year. He has also served as a member of Appalachian State’s alumni council (2004-05) and academic athletics council (2008-present) and served as the president of the Yosef Club advisory board in 2004-05.

“We couldn’t be more excited to have someone with Brian’s experience and love for Appalachian on board to help us strengthen our presence in the Charlotte area,” Beasley said. “We think that having Brian on our staff as a voice in Charlotte will not only be beneficial for our department but also for our alumni and fans in the Metrolina region.”

The good thing is that they broadcast with 10,000 watts day,the bad news,only 190 watts night,which doesn't cover most of charlotte.Their night time signal goes from Tyvola rd. to Gastonia,depending on skywave interference.WZGV's coverage info can be found at www.radio-locator.com

Great news for those of us in the Charlotte area! WKBC is very good overall, but they (along with most of our other stations) have no internet feed available.


When will "It's better than what we had" no longer be good enough for App State?

I think the GoASU app includes live game audio, though I just recently discovered it and haven't tried it out yet.

Heard this today. The announcers seemed genuinely excited about all things APP, and paid our university some very high compliments. They also interviewed DJ. I plan to begin listening to them more, as opposed to WFNZ, which has become a UNC-CHeat- Duke love fest 24/7/365. Tough week for an unnamed school near Concord, as Tom Sorenson at the disturber wrote a column about their BBall program not working, and now their radio home drops them to welcome us.
Hey QC, WE ARE APP STATE! :D

Will someone tell the higher authorities that Hendersonville is not receiving a radio broadcast . We did at one time but now taken over by a Christian radio 97.3. WHKP does sometimes but 99% time tarholes take the airtime. :?:

What about the triangle? If there's a unc, state, or duke game on all of stations listed as app carriers have those games instead. Maybe I just missed it but I went through the dial on am and fm last season several times and could never find a broadcast.

Agree...in the long run the news about Burns may be more significant than the radio station pick-up. It appears he will work on Yosef Club membership. Maybe that will have an impact on corporate dollars. Beasley better hope so; we are woefully lacking in corporate sponsorship dollars, and that must change.

Brian's a great guy. He worked with us on the Yosef Board retreat. I'm tickled to have him in the Charlotte area to solidify our alumni base there.

We need all the support we can get from every arena. For folks like me who are just plow mules and not likely to run with thoroughbreds it's easier to make individual contacts. That's why I'm always harping on the $10 per living alum is over $1,000,000.

Brian will likely be working on all kinds of donors. The most effective way to cultivate donors is generally to get solid buy-in from alumni and then branch out to their contacts. I have no doubt Brian will do well with all aspects of development in the Charlotte area.

I'm pretty excited to hear about all this, with my impending move to Charlotte coming up a few months. It'll be great to have access to all this. Hoping to get to more games now but with what I do for a living, its a reality that I won't have all my Saturdays in the fall free to go to games. This will be a lifesaver.

It looks like the App experiment is over and ESPN 730 has picked Charlotte back up for Football, Men's BBall, some Women's BBall, and a few Baseball games. Don't change that preset in your car, because this is where you can find our game next year. ;)

Is UNCC adding on to the stadium between now and next year? If not that will be one tough ticket.

Every App alum in Charlotte listens to 97.3FM for App games in the car and now 90% of football games are on tv or ESPN3, is was doomed when they announced it.

Thats ok. We signed on with 2 new stations in the Charlotte area a month or so ago for better coverage. Many of our fans complained the signal from 730 wasn't reaching many areas in the Charlotte market.
