KNIGHTS EVP/COO DAN RAJKOWSKI said, "The opportunity to add WBT to our broadcasting network was very appealing to us. Their signal, combined with vision and talent for radio broadcasting, made them an absolute great fit for the KNIGHTS. It's very pleasing for us to know that our fans will hear CHARLOTTE KNIGHTS games on WBT, along with our flagship station ESPN 730 AM, and in SOUTH CAROLINA on WRHI (94.3 FM and 1340 AM)."

The KNIGHTS are moving back into CHARLOTTE after playing at KNIGHTS STADIUM (formerly KNIGHTS CASTLE) in FORT MILL, SC from 1990 through last season; the city's minor league franchises (CHARLOTTE HORNETS, CHARLOTTE ORIOLES, and the KNIGHTS) played at CROCKETT PARK (formerly CLARK GRIFFITH PARK) in CHARLOTTE from 1940 through 1989.
