EAST CAROLINA UNIVERSITY sports will remain on BEASLEY Classic Hits WNCT-F and Beach Music WNCT-A/GREENVILE-NEW BERN under a five year extension between BEASLEY and rights holder IMG COLLEGE. Football and men's basketball will air on the FM, with baseball on the AM.
"We are very thankful to GEORGE BEASLEY and the BEASLEY BROADCAST GROUP, as well as our partners at IMG, for extending our radio agreement for an additional five years," ECU Director of Athletics JEFF COMPHER said. "BEASLEY has long been considered a leader in radio broadcasting throughout the country, and continuing this relationship gives our loyal and passionate fans a powerful and reliable way to stay connected to the PIRATES."
"I have always believed that WNCT-FM is the one area station that should have close ties with the University, promoting special events and covering many aspects of this great school which continues to be one of eastern NORTH CAROLINA's greatest assets," said BEASLEY CEO and Chairman GEORGE G. BEASLEY. "This renewal is certainly in the best interest of all parties, especially now as we all try to enhance the growth of ECU's athletics program during its transition to new conference membership."
