WCMC-FM (99.9 The Fan)/Raleigh makes two changes to its weekday roster of air talent and shows. Adam Gold, previously co-host for "Adam & Joe" in afternoons (3-7pm) for the last decade, will now be the solo host for his new midday show "The Adam Gold Show" airing weekdays 12-3pm. Taking over for Gold in afternoons will be local sportswriter Joe Giglio, formerly of the News & Observer in Raleigh. Giglio will also be a contributor to on-air sports reporting for WRAL-TV and WRALsportsfan.com.

Gold takes over for "The David Glenn Show" that originated via Curtis Media Group in Raleigh and had aired for the last decade on 99.9 The Fan. Giglio, who has covered and written about NC State and UNC among other local sports in The Triangle over the past 20 years, inherits Gold's spot and will join current afternoon personality Joe Ovies, weekday afternoons from 3-6pm.

Gold, who has been in The Triangle for over 20 years, will continue his duties as the Carolina Hurricanes reporter, including on-air interviews and analysis, plus previews, recaps, video diaries and hosting the companies most popular podcast "Canes Corner." Giglio will not only host the 3-hour daily talk show, but he'll also be a digital contributor with daily sports content for WRAL-TV, WRALsportsfan.com and the 99.9 The Fan social media platforms.

99.9 The Fan Program/Operations Director Dennis Glasgow said, "It's not often that you have the unique opportunity to get better when moving an air personality of Adam Gold's stature to another timeslot and also add a sports reporting vet like Joe Giglio to an already established show, so we're very fortunate. In the end our listeners are the big winners."

"We're really enthusiastic about the unique perspective that Joe Giglio will bring to our sports coverage. His vast knowledge and experience will bolster our reporting efforts. He will serve as a true cross-platform expert, rotating from radio to TV to digital in this specialized role," added WRAL-TV News Director Rick Gall.
