98.1 The Score/WOBX-FM

98.1 The Score/WOBX-FM is pleased to announce that they will once again serve as the voice for both the First Flight and Manteo baseball teams this spring. There are seventeen games scheduled to be aired at this point. In addition to tuning in via the FM dial, interested parties can also catch the broadcast via the free mobile app, the website www.981thescore.com, or through your Amazon Alexa device.

Manteo Athletic Director and Head Baseball Coach Alfie Wheeler was offered his praise of the regional sports outlet noting that “98.1 The Score has been a big supporter of Manteo Athletics and we highly value our relationship with them. They have been integral in promoting Dare County Schools, it’s athletic programs and it’s student-athletes and coaches.” First Flight Athletic Director Chad Williams echoed those sentiments by saying “First Flight is honored to be featured on 98.1 The Score with its high school baseball coverage. Tom Hoggard and 98.1 have been strong supporters of First Flight Athletics and this is truly an extension of that.”

Tom Hoggard, programming director of 98.1 and play-by-play voice of the broadcasts was equally excited to continue both relationships. “One of the most appealing aspects of my job is being able to cover and give exposure to the local athletes of the area’s schools. I’ve heard from grandparents of Dare County athletes who live out of state and rely on our livestreams as a way of staying connected to their grandchildren. Dare County and the surrounding areas are home countless quality athletes and programs. Our station, 98.1/WOBX, exists because of these same people and their families so in some ways I view our coverage as a way of giving back. We’ll aim to be connected to the area schools as long as I am around.”
