RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- The Carolina Hurricanes announced a group of 10 new ownership partners in the team, with nine of them based in North Carolina.
Team majority owner and CEO Peter Karmanos Jr. said Thursday that the partners joining him "are devoted to the continued success of the Hurricanes in North Carolina" and solidify the team's standing in the league and the state.
Financial details were not disclosed.
Among the partners are Capitol Broadcasting Company, Inc., which owns several radio and television stations in the state -- including WRAL-TV in Raleigh -- and Raleigh-based Clancy & Theys Construction.
Karmanos had been looking for minority investors since general partner Thomas Thewes died in 2008.
