After 17 Years Behind the Mic, Ryan Cameron Replaced by Big Tigger as Atlanta Hawks PA Announcer

The Atlanta Hawks have parted ways with their longtime public address announcer Ryan Cameron. Cameron is the current afternoon host at Majic 107.5/97.5 and has announced Hawks games since 2004. He has announced nearly 700 games including this past season's All Star Game. Over the last year Cameron has worked through some health challenges. 

Starting in the 2021-22 Big Tigger (Darian Morgan) of V-103 and host of “The Big Tigger Morning Show” will move from being the in-house arena DJ at State Farm Arena to the floor level at the table as the PA announcer. 

The Atlanta Hawks games are broadcast on Audacy, Inc. owned station 92.9 The Game which is also the owner of V-103. Cameron, a long time host on V-103, works for Radio One's Majic 107.5/97.5. Sources believe Cameron's contract was not renewed with the Hawks for this reason. The team also announced Tenitra Batiste of 92.9 The Game will take on the role of in-game Sports Analyst.

“We are excited to continue growing our partnership with Audacy both on-air and in-arena. They have been a tremendous partner for eight years, finding ways to grow their audience and reach throughout Atlanta. Tenitra and Big Tigger will add new elements and talents to our in-arena show,” said Hawks & State Farm Arena Chief Revenue Officer Andrew Saltzman.

Gayle King and Charles Barkley are finalizing a deal that would have them jointly lead a primetime hour each week on CNN, according to people familiar with the matter and multiple news sources. The pact is not complete and there is always the risk it may not come to fruition, one of these people says. CNN declined to make executives available for comment.

• WLBT anchor and meteorologist Barbie Bassett is no longer with the Jackson, Miss., NBC station after racially insensitive comments. In early March, Bassett was speaking with her fellow anchors on air about Snoop Dogg’s latest business venture, Snoop Cali Blanc, a new wine in his wine label. In response to a comment about putting a Snoop Dogg tattoo on her shoulder, Bassett said, “Fo shizzle, my nizzle.” Bassett is white. Charlamagne tha God defended Bassett as he discussed the situation on The Breakfast Club. “She might be old. She probably has no idea nizzle is a derivative of the N-word. That’s not a fireable offense. I hope she sues.”
