Among them are former Atlanta Brave Ryan Klesko, former Brave and Falcon Brian Jordan, former NBA players Dennis Scott and Sam Mitchell, former Falcon Ovie Mughelli, and Bob Neal, the longtime voice of the NBA on TBS and TNT.

92.9 has been running automated AAA with occasional national Sports play-by-play since the beginning of the month.

    For those who don’t know Jason Goff, GREAT hire. I am a long time listener to “The Score”, and he will be missed. Good Luck Jason on your new gig.
