Ryan Cameron is channeling Ryan Seacrest, adding more duties to his already busy schedule: he will join Mike Conti as a pre-game host for Atlanta Falcons games this season on 92.9/The Game.
The V-103 morning host is an Atlanta native and big sports fan who already joins various shows on occasion on the Game, which is owned by the same company CBS Radio.
Cameron, during the basketball season, has been the in-game announcer at Philips Arena for the Atlanta Hawks since 2004. (Read my 2015 profile of Cameron’s time with the Hawks.)
The radio host’s first appearance 0n the pre-game show will be August 11 for a pre-season game.
In an interview, Cameron said he was interested in doing more sports and both the Falcons and his boss Rick Caffey agreed.
“I’m there to be that guy who is from the city who is down for the team,” Cameron said. He will do home games from the Georgia Dome in its final season and road games from the Game’s studios (though he said he’d love to do a road trip to New Orleans Sept. 26, hint, hint.)
Norm Schrutt, Cameron’s agent, said it’s currently a year-to-year deal but could be easily extended if it works out.
Conti does pre- and post-game for both the Falcons and the Hawks and has been with the station since 2012. (The Game recently extended its contract with the Hawks another three years.)
