Inner Banks has registered 943-TheGame.com (personally a baffling registration when the simpler 943TheGame.com and TheGame943.com are available as of this writing), indicating that AC “Star 94.3” WRHD Farmville will be the station heading to Sports. A Twitter account with the new station logo decked out in the colors of the hometown East Carolina University Pirates is also in place.
