CHANTICLEER SPORTS NETWORK
Coastal Carolina University Department of Athletics began a new partnership in August 2017 with local broadcast company Alpha Media-Myrtle Beach that will make WRNN-AM/FM (“Hot Talk 99.5”) and stations 1450 AM/105.5 FM the flagship homes of the Chanticleer Sports Network through the 2019-20 athletic season.
The new partnership will feature live game coverage of football, men’s and women’s basketball, and baseball airing primarily on WRNN-FM with supplemental coverage on WRNN-AM 1450 and its FM translator 105.5.
“We are excited about this new partnership and the opportunity for Chanticleer student-athletes to be featured across the strong signal and market-leading listenership of WRNN,” said Rhett Graham, CCU director of corporate sales and sponsorships.”
The new partnership will also feature significant daily promotional support of Chanticleer Athletics on all of Alpha Media’s other market stations, including, WAVE 104, Energy 92.1 and 96.1 WKZQ.
Josh Gertzog, general manager of Alpha Media-Myrtle Beach, said, “We are thrilled to be part of the growth happening at Coastal Carolina University! Being the radio partner of one of only three NCAA Division I FBS programs in the state of South Carolina is an honor, and with a wonderful athletic pedigree, including a baseball national championship, it’s great to be able to broadcast the Chanticleer games and to partner in other ways. Alpha Media’s motto is ‘Live and Local,’ and there is no more local university to the Myrtle Beach/Grand Strand than Coastal Carolina.”
