About WRDU-FM

WRDU (106.1 FM), known as "Rush Radio 106.1", is a talk radio formatted radio station that serves the Raleigh-Durham market of North Carolina. It is owned and operated by Clear Channel Worldwide. Sister stations include G105, 93.9 KISS-FM, and 100.7 the River. Its call letters were once associated with Channel 28 (now WRDC-TV) from 1968 to 1978 when it was an NBC affiliate. WRDU currently airs the Rush Limbaugh Show and Coast to Coast AM, along with shows hosted by Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and Todd Schnitt. The station began as WVOT-FM in 1961. It shared a studio / transmitter building on Herring Avenue in Wilson with its AM sister, WVOT 1420 AM. That building burned in 1992. WVOT is now operating from an old house on Jackson Street. In the early days, both WVOT AM & FM largely simulcasted a MOR, full service format until the duo was acquired by Century Communications in the mid-'70s. The FM was renamed WXYY and switched to an automated "Super Rock" format. The AM was named "14VOT" and was quite a hit locally with teenagers, playing a tightly-rotated top 20 lineup. By 1980, WXYY had switched to country but was still automated. In 1983, the stations were purchased by Voyager
