WCCB stays TV home for Charlotte 49ers, WFNZ takes over radio

The Charlotte 49ers’ six home football games this season will be shown on Charlotte’s WCCB television.

Two games – Sept. 6 against Johnson C. Smith and Nov. 15 against Wesley (Del.) – will be on WCCB but produced by the new American Sports Network, which is operated by Sinclair Broadcast Group, Conference USA’s new broadcast partner.

WCCB, which also broadcast home games during Charlotte’s inaugural season in 2013, has a new on-air group, including Sam Smith (play-by-play), former Carolina Panthers quarterback Brett Basanez and Jeff Zell (color) and Brandon Davidow (sideline).

Charlotte’s radio home has moved to WFNZ-AM (610). Matt Swierad will handle play-by-play duties, with Kevin Donnalley providing color commentary and Bobby Rosinski on the sidelines. WFNZ will air a pregame show at 10-11:30 a.m. from the 49ers’ tailgate village, hosted by Chris Kroeger and Richard Walker.

WFNZ’s sister station, WBCN-AM (1660) will air the 49ers’ coaches show featuring Brad Lambert at 7-8 p.m. on Mondays at BlackFinn American Saloon in the EpiCentre in uptown Charlotte.
