“The continuation and growth of our partnership with Capitol Broadcasting Company is another success story for the Carolina RailHawks and its fans,” said RailHawks President Curt Johnson. “In addition, fans around the world can view home and away matches through NASLLive.com. CBC is a company rooted in community involvement and they have long been advocates for the game of soccer and its growth in the Triangle. We are proud to grow our partnership in 2014.”

“Dean has been the Voice of the RailHawks since day one and we are proud to have him continue to serve a vital role in the broadcast booth and in the community,” said Johnson. “His work in coordination with our production team, headed by Kyle Lang, gives us one of the best broadcasts in the NASL and allows for the RailHawks to grow their media reach.”
