For visitors this year, some changes to the local radio dial. Cap-San, which owns four stations that serve the area moved their ESPN Radio format from their 92.3 channel (which covered northern Dare and not much more) to their 97.1 FM slot, dropping the country format on that channel (WYND). While 97.1 has a larger signal footprint than 92.3, its directed more to the NC mainland and Hatteras Island, so picking up ESPN on portable radios and inside the office might pose a problem in Northern Dare and anywhere in Currituck.
Their classic rock format, formerly on 104.9 exclusively, is now simulcast on 92.3. This should greatly improve the coverage of "Classic Hits" in northern Dare, as the 104.9 tower was over in Hertford and had a hard time putting a good signal onto the beach. Although a softer rock format than East Carolina Radio's "95.3 The Rock", this should provide some competition in that genre here in Dare County.
CapSan has retained the adult alternative format on 99.1 "The Sound".
Of course, we listen to Beach 104, at 104.1 on the dial for the BEST coverage of local events, concerts, fishing, weather, and charitable/community concerns.
