92.9 The Game has solved their midday problem, naming John Michaels as Rick Kamla’s new on-air partner. The duo made their debut today, hosting from 10a-2p. Michaels fills the void left behind by Randy Cross who was let go by the radio station in December. No explanation has been provided for Cross’ termination.
Michaels has been a sideline reporter for the Atlanta Falcons Radio Network since 2011. He was also an on-air personality at The Game and 790 The Zone, before the radio station dropped all local personalities in 2014.
The Game brought in a number of high profile candidates for auditions for the vacant midday slot. Ryan Stewart of the 2 Live Stews, Dave Archer, and former NFL Tight End Randy McMichael all received consideration, and according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Archer was offered the position first but rejected the opportunity.
Regardless, Michaels now has the job and we wish him the best with the new opportunity.
