So here we are.

Well, at least this piece is.

We’ve sat around a lot the past few weeks and talked about how far we’ve come since our birth / launch. We’ve talked about the staff that has come and gone. The faces and personas that no longer grace our hallways like Jamie Dukes, Randy Cross, Kordell Stewart, Kristen Ledlow, Rachel Baribeau and more. The new faces that we’ve come to embrace as family in the past year or so like Mike Bell and Mark Zinno.

We’ve had Sports Fests, Tailgate Fests and a number of other fests.

We’ve Superbowl flyaways and GameBowl tournaments.

After much discussion, and several arguments, let’s break down our Top 10 moments of the last 4 years here at 92-9 The Game:

10) Sept 9th, 2014: As the official home of the Atlanta Hawks, 92-9 The Game has had exclusive access to the entire organization for all of the great moments we’ve experienced as Hawks’ fans over the last few years. But, we’ve also been a great partner for the team in those few situations that have not been so good.

After news broke that Hawks’ GM Danny Ferry had been caught on tape using a racial slur, Hawks’ CEO Steve Koonin came to us to get the word out to the fans that Ferry was still the GM and that the team was working hard to handle the situation appropriately. Watch Steve below as he appeared on the then named “Rick & Jamie” show:

9) Aug 4th, 2014 – 92-9 The Game officially became the home of the NFL in Atlanta, GA. The station began airing live NFL games on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays. The most NFL games were now live on the radio on the most powerful sports station signal in the Southeast.

8) Jul 6th, 2016 – Former Falcons’ WR Roddy White called into Dukes & Bell to talk about his career with Atlanta and his relationship with new OC Kyle Shanahan. It was supposed to a relaxed, calm conversation to let Roddy thank the fans for their support and find out what he would be up to next in his career. It doesn’t always go as planned, however, and Roddy had a few things he wanted to get off his chest:

7) Jun 13th, 2015 – Everyone in the South loves to tailgate. This is well-known fact. And by the time mid-summer rolls around it’s been many months since sports fans have been able to do so. The brain trust here at 92-9 The Game got together and organized an event to solve that problem. The first annual Tailgate Fest was held on June 13th, 2015 in the parking lot of The Arena At Gwinnett Center. Tailgating fans, Falcons fans, Hawks fans, Georgia fans and even some 49ers fans all came together to show off their love of tailgating and compete for some great trophies and prizes! The event was repeated this past summer as well with the 2nd annual Tailgate Fest being held in the same spot. Check out what you might have missed here:

6) May 1st thru Jul 25th, 2014 – We like to do things big here at 92-9 The Game. And we like to surprise each other from time to time too. Those two things came together in early summer 2014. We close to becoming the official home of the Atlanta Falcons and some of us felt like we needed to step up our game for our live broadcasts from the Xfinity Training Camp at the Atlanta Falcons’ home base in Flowery Branch. So Dutch, the Marketing Director, and I got together to build a real broadcast set for Training Camp. It took us a couple of months of nights and weekends to accomplish, but we knew our coworkers, many of whom also worked at the NFL Network etc, would be happy when they saw it.

We literally finished the set the morning that we were supposed to set up at Flowery Branch. After months of it taking up my whole garage, we loaded it up and set it up at Training Camp. Jamie Dukes and the rest of the staff were blown away. It’s called “taking it to the next level” and we still use it today.

5) Several times in the last few years Carl Dukes and his co-host have won Best Sports Show in Atlanta as voted by the readers or Creative Loafing. “Gametime” won the award when the show was hosted by Carl Dukes and Kordell Stewart. “Dukes & Bell” won the award again this year, with hosts Carl Dukes and Mike Bell. Mike joined the show about a year after 790 The Zone went off the air. He had been at that station for years and brought a huge fan base with him. Carl and Mike had known each other for years and were very happy to be finally working together. Their hard work paid off when they were voted Best Of!


4) Jun 13, 2013 – 92-9 The Game became the official home of the Atlanta Hawks! Not long after the station launched, negotiations began to bring the Atlanta Hawks Radio Network into the building and make 92-9 The Game the official home of the Hawks for basketball fans across the Atlanta metro and beyond. The station’s strong signal, the storied career of Steve Holman, the talent on the air at 92-9 The Game that could serve as pregame and postgame hosts all joined to together to present Hawks’ basketball to the fans at a level that had never been done before.

3) Jul 12th, 2016 – The Atlanta Hawks sign Dwight Howard and 92-9 The Game introduces Dwight to Atlanta and to Hawks fans. As the exclusive partner with the Atlanta Hawks, much like #10 above, the station has access to the organization that no other media outlet can obtain. And just like the instance above, when the team makes a major move or has major news, they come first and exclusively to 92.9 FM, our website at and our social media platforms on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.

The Hawks signed their star player, a difference maker, on July 12th of this past summer and he immediately came in to the station to talk over moving back to Atlanta, his hometown, with Dukes & Bell. Just one thing, this was a surprise move by the Hawks and Dukes & Bell were on location in Hoover, AL covering SEC Media Week. But we pulled out all the stops, coordinated with our guys on the ground in Hoover and found a way to bring it to you anyways. Watch below as Carl Dukes and Mike Bell interview Dwight Howard and introduce him to Atlanta!

2) Jan 30th, 2015 – The Atlanta Falcons and 92-9 The Game sign a multi-year partnership agreement. We were officially and exclusively the HOME of our Atlanta Falcons. It was a deal that had been being worked on and planned since before the station was even launched. At least on our end. We knew we could bring the fans Falcons coverage better than any other media outlet in the market and that we had been doing so even before the announcement was made.

From the Falcons, on that day:

92.9 The Game will become the Falcons flagship radio station for all preseason and regular season broadcasts. All 20 Falcons games will be heard on 92.9 The Game (92.9 FM). In addition to the game broadcast, 92.9 The Game will provide listeners with a pre-game show that will include interviews with the team’s head coach , General Manager Thomas Dimitroff, quarterback Matt Ryan, and Falcons Team President Rich McKay.

“CBS RADIO Atlanta is a solid broadcaster that is committed to providing Falcons fans with the most innovative, complete and comprehensive coverage from a radio perspective. We are excited to bring Falcons football back to the CBS RADIO family and a familiar spot on the dial for our fans,” said Jim Smith, Falcons Executive Vice President, Chief Marketing & Revenue Officer.

This partnership only grows stronger each day. We are true partners with the organization and we look forward to continuing that for years to come.

1) Oct 24th, 2012 – Our launch. Without this moment none of the above would have been possible. The vision of our Market Manager / Senior VP Rick Caffey and our Program Director Terry Foxx, has become a reality. Our team works relentlessly each day to produce the absolute best product possible for the sports fans in Atlanta. The faces have changed somewhat, some gone, some new, some just older, but we all love what we do and we do it for you.
