As a 10 year former tight end of the National Football League, Alge is able to be insightful, informative, critical as well as comical in talking about today's sports. During his 7 years as a member of the Atlanta Falcons he earned 4 consecutive pro bowl trips. He now enjoys weekly trips to the Atlanta Falcons Flowery Branch facility to interview players and coaches,as well as weekly trips through the woods looking for his lost golf balls. He resides in Suwanee with his wife and three girls.

JP comes to Atlanta with 25 years of award winning TV and Radio experience covering sports in the Southeast including stops in Tampa Bay, Greensboro NC and Tallahassee.

“I am energized by this incredible opportunity to use my extensive experience to help create a unique sports talk show that is fan-centric, opinionated, irreverent when it needs to be and socially relevant on many topics.”

“We plan to use the latest social media and communication technology to instantly poll the listener, react to the trending topics and interact with the audience in an immediate, engaging and entertaining way.”

“I’m excited about teaming with a Falcons legend like Alge. He gives the show the local foundation and knowledge that is essential to our success. I hope to bring a unique journalistic and regional perspective that complements his experience as a player.”

“I don’t take myself to seriously and love to laugh and keep sports in it’s proper perspective. We will talk about the Falcons offensive line woes but also give a dad’s perspective on the Miley Cyrus controversy.”

“Atlanta is the media and sports mecca of the South. This fulfills a career objective for me. Tampa Bay is a great place to live but Atlanta is a passionate and big time sports town with a major event it seems every week. I can’t wait to fully engage the vibe and pulse of this incredible city and sports landscape”

David Archer

Mike Bell

John Michaels

Archer played for the Sacramento Surge of the WLAF in 1992, throwing for 2,964 yards (NFL Europa single season record) and leading them to a World Bowl championship, where he was named game MVP. In 1993 he headed to the Canadian Football League (CFL) and the Sacramento Gold Miners (part of the league's United States expansion) where in 1993 he threw for 6,023 yards, still the fourth most in any CFL season (Doug Flutie of the Calgary Stampeders threw for even more yards that year.) He threw for 3,340 yards for Sacramento in 1994. He played with the San Antonio Texans in 1995, and the Ottawa Rough Riders in 1996. After the Rough Riders folded, he was drafted by the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the dispersal draft. He decided to not play in Saskatchewan as the contract offer was too low and retired instead. He spent the 1997 season as a CFL television analyst and returned to the CFL with the Edmonton Eskimos in 1998. His final game was the Western Final playoff game against the Calgary Stampeders with Jeff Garcia at quarterback. Calgary won and went on to win the Grey Cup. Archer retired after that game and is now the color analyst for the Atlanta Falcons and SEC college football.

In his five seasons in the CFL he completed 1,388 of 2,434 passes (57%) for 20,671 yards with 71 interceptions and 120 touchdown passes.

Mike Bell Lights up the airwaves as Atlanta’s most entertaining afternoon guy. His knowledge of sports, hilarious bits, and impersonations has helped Bell win numerous radio awards including the Air Award for "Best Talk Show Host in Atlanta."

Mike’s diverse talents have translated into numerous media opportunities. He has served as an anchor, reporter, and NASCAR expert for Fox Sports Net South.

Bell, though still a young guy, is a true radio veteran. He has spun records and entertained listeners everywhere from Bloomfield, West Virginia, to Miami, Florida, and is one of the few guys in the business that can proudly say, "I’ve never been fired." Bell is currently living it up in Atlanta as The Zone’s ultimate single guy, and is just thrilled to be in a town where the women clearly outnumber the dudes.

John Michaels can be heard afternoons on Archer and Bell as well as on the Atlanta Falcons Radio Network as the team's sideline reporter.

     
DJ Shockley

Wes Durham

Mike Morgan

D.J. Shockley is a man driven to succeed through a lot of hard work and one who will never be satisfied with mediocrity! An enthusiastic individual that loves new challenges and can adapt to the obstacles that life presents in a positive way. Love sports, love competing in anything and a guy who enjoys everyday like its my last! Successful in high-school, college, pros, and in life but still has more work to do!

Since 1995, Wes Durham has been the football and basketball play-by-play voice for Georgia Tech. In 2004, he also became the "Voice of the Atlanta Falcons". That makes him one of four announcers in the nation doing college football on Saturday and the NFL on Sunday. He's been voted 7-times as the "Georgia Sportscaster of the Year" by the NSSA. In 2005, he received the "Furman Bisher Award" from the Atlanta Sports Council for Sports Media Excellence.

Mike Morgan has been juggling Sports/Talk with Television&Radio Play-by-Play for the last 16 years. In addition to hosting a daily Sports/Talk show in Georgia and the Carolina's over the years, Morgan can be seen calling college football, basketball, and baseball for ESPN and Fox Sports. Morgan also calls Braves Spring Training games, as well as select Gwinnett Braves regular season games on CSS.

Morgan has been talking, following, and broadcasting SEC games for the better part of 2 decades. He called SC Gamecock games for 10 years, racking up 5 "Sportscaster of the Year" Awards in the process. He is a die-hard college football and basketball fan, but is a huge NFL, MLB, and NBA guy as well. He admittedly knows nothing about NASCAR, European Soccer, or movies about aliens and vampires.

Second only to sports is Morgan's passion for incessantly quoting movies & Seinfeld. His awkward looking dog (complete w/ underbite), Kramer, was named after the popular sitcom character.
