NFL veteran Randy McMichael and Andy Bunker are joining forces to take over over the mid-day slot on sports talk 92.9/The Game permanently, the station announced today.
Bunker has been hosting the evening show for three years. Given his popularity during that time slot, the promotion is not surprising.
McMichael, a 2001 University of Georgia graduate, played in the NFL from 2002 to 2013 as a tight end for the Miami Dolphins, St. Louis Rams and San Diego Chargers. McMichael has been with the Game for nearly four years. He has hosted shows on weekends until his move up the broadcasting ranks.
The pair have been filling in for several weeks now.
They replace John Michaels and Rick Kamla, who were unceremoniously released in March. Kamla was an original member of the 92.9/The Game launch in 2012. His departure leaves just a single host remaining from that first line up: Carl Dukes in the afternoons.
Michaels, a former 790/The Zone host from 2004 to 2014, worked with Kamla at mid-days for nearly three years. He replaced Jamie Dukes.
Terry Foxx, the program director, has not corresponded with me in four years. And in classic passive/aggressive fashion, the station does not send me press releases although my email address is attached to every story I write. (So Terry... call me... maybe?)
