WILMINGTON, NC (PORTCITYDAILY.COM) — Port City Radio, Wilmington’s first and only all-news radio station, will launch Monday, April 1.

Formerly The Big Talker FM, you can hear Port City Radio on 93.7 and 106.3 FM, and streaming online at

With the retirement of southeastern North Carolina’s most listened-to talk radio host, Chad Adams, officials with Hometown Wilmington Media decided to change the news-talk format of The Big Talker FM to an all-news format. 

You can catch Reporters’ Corner at 7:41 a.m. weekdays, featuring Port City Daily Managing Editor Caroline Curran and reporters Ben Brown, Joe Catenacci, Christina Haley and Jonathan Spiers.

Then, in the 8 a.m. hour, local newsmakers will join Aimee Bowen for the Community Connections segment.

In addition to local news gathered and produced by the Port City Daily editorial team, you’ll hear traffic and weather every 10 minutes.

    Chad always conducted himself with dignity. He exuded a keen intelligence coupled with professional integrity, interested more in ideas than personalities. Thank you Chad. The chatterati will miss you.

    Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.”

  • GuestTroller says:

    Hooray! One less hate-radio outlet.

  • Guest2929 says:

    What a hateful thing to say for someone who’s so “anti-hate”.

  • George says:

    The intelligent voice of the tolerant progressive liberal?

  • Guest Local Listener says:

    Obviously you should have used a Q-Tip to clean all of the wax out
    of your ears. Yes, Chad made no bones about being a conservative,
    but he was always very respectful of his guests. That’s why people
    from both sides of the aisle were on his show. This being his last
    day on the air, it was nice to hear his listeners and past guests,
    democrats and republicans call in and than him for the non-hostile
    venue he provided. Get you facts straight before you make a complete
    idiot of yourself.

  • Leroy says:

    Why do you hate radio?

  • Guesty111 says:

    I guess hate isn’t selling well now-a-days?? Beat it and stay out I say. Anything will be better than their daily anti-American rants. Nothing but typical “part of the problem not part of the solution” lowbrows. – Buh bye

  • Grand Ole Party says:

    Hate is selling off the shelves, just look who is sitting in the White House. The most divisive president in US history. He hates American more than the commies. But now if you are under the ignorant assumption that conservative talk doesn’t sell, well just take a gander at Fox news…The NUMBER ONE rated news in America. Buh bye

  • East Coast Ed says:

    Chad may have been nice enough but he was from Americans for Prosperity, which is a Koch Brothers backed “non profit” that advocates for their political policies. There was such deep bias in his views. Can’t say less of that on the air is a huge loss for society.

  • Erlkoenig says:

    Obviously Guesty111 and GuestTroller never listened.

  • GuestTroller says:

    Leroy, I don’t hate radio, just rightwing nincompoop talk radio.
