Local radio stations announce Tuesday primary coverage

Local radio stations WTZQ-1600 AM and WHKP-1450 AM announced coverage plans for Tuesday's primary election.

WTZQ is teaming up with the North Carolina News Network for live coverage of the North Carolina primary. Anchored by NCNN Chief Political Correspondent Donna Martinez, the broadcast will include the latest returns, in-depth interviews with the state’s top analysts as well as live local election results from Henderson County.

Coverage begins at 8 p.m. and can be heard on the radio at Q-95.3 FM, AM-1600 or on computer or smart device by going to www.wtzq.com or via the TuneIn Radio app. WTZQ’s election night coverage is sponsored entirely by Pardee Hospital.

WHKP will broadcast live coverage of the local and state-wide election returns starting at 7:30 p.m.

“As it was with Truman versus Dewey almost 70 years ago, and with hundreds of local, state and national offices and candidates since then, WHKP has always brought the local community the numbers, the winners and losers, and a clear explanation of what it all means for our local community and for the state and nation," News Director Larry Freeman said. "And we will continue that tradition this Tuesday evening on 'Super Tuesday.'"

WHKP's coverage is also on 107.7-FM and streamed on its website.
