12 Days Until the Atlanta Hawks’ Season

We are counting down the days until the Hawks’ season-opener in Dallas by giving you 50 things to be excited about this year. With 12 days left, today’s reason is…

Steve Holman and 92.9 The Game

In March 1989 Steve Holman made his first of 2,050 consecutive Atlanta Hawks broadcasts. Holman has been on the call for some of the iconic moments in Hawks history, including Dominique Wilkins becoming the Hawks’ all-time leading scorer and Lenny Wilkens breaking the all-time NBA coaching wins record. The “Voice of the Hawks” brings an incredible amount of knowledge about the game and the history of the Hawks and the NBA as a whole to his broadcasts. He also brings great excitement to the game, such as his trade-marked “BANG!” after big three-point baskets, which fans will hear a lot of with Kyle Korver back this season.

This season, Holman’s 2,051st broadcast will be his first on the Hawks new flagship station 92.9 The Game. Every Hawks game this season will be broadcast on 92.9 FM in Atlanta, so Holman’s calls will come through with great clarity and strength across the city and the metro area. 92.9 The Game will be the radio home for all things Hawks with games, pre-game and post-game shows, and analysis throughout the day from their different shows.

Holman is, in our opinion, the best in the business, and getting to hear him call another season of Hawks action and the Hawks partnership with 92.9 The Game is yet another reason we are excited for the 2013-14 season.
