The Triangle region of North Carolina is one of the most unique sports markets in the country thanks to a confluence of multiple universities with rabid fanbases: Duke, NC State and UNC, a lone pro sports franchise with the Carolina Hurricanes, and transplants who still care about their hometown teams. As more people move to the area or as young fans enter adulthood, they might lack the context as to why certain things still matter or the impact of certain events to their favorite teams. "A Brief History of Triangle Sports" will interview sports influencers who changed the game we know today in North Carolina. Tom Suiter, Tony Rigsbee, David Glenn, Bomani Jones, Chuck Kaiton, Mick Mixon, Mark Packer, Jeff Gravely, and the late Caulton Tudor (and more) will be featured.
