Doug Konkel has been a presence (sometimes even a wanted one!) at 680 the Fan since 2001. A finalist, but eventual loser, in the original 680 Ultimate Fan Contest, Doug soon began hosting shows with Perry Laurentino, Jerry Elinger and others over the years. Most notably he was on the Sunday morning Review/Preview Show and currently hosts the seasonal recruiting show The Official Visit with Rusty Mansell of 247Sports. He even had a forgettable stint as Promotions Director at 680 before giving way to the much more able Scott McFarlane. Doug has been part of 680’s Friday Night Football since its inception over a decade ago and has been responsible for color commentary on game broadcasts for the last several years with play-by-play maestro Karl Werl.
Doug’s nomadic academic career took from the University of Florida to the University of South Alabama (where he received a degree in communications) to law school at Georgia State. He is married to the remarkable Laura Zucker, the best pediatrician in Georgia and the world’s most fervent yet diminutive Duke basketball fan, and together they are the parents of two current super-geniuses and future captains of industry, Ben and Sam Konkel.
Returning to the Friday Night Football lineup is its longest tenured host, the venerable veteran of Atlanta sports radio, Steve West. With 21-years in the Atlanta market, “Westy” has cultivated a loyal listener fanbase as the laid back, book of football knowledge.
With The Fan since day one of the relaunch in September of 2000, only Buck Belue and John Kincade can equal Steve’s service time. In that time, West has guest or co-hosted on countless shows in the station lineup.
The list over the last year would be lengthy as well, but a sampling would include: Buck Belue’s College Football Today, Hometeam and Hamilton, Buck and Kincade, and NFL Game Day.
This Fall, West will begin his 13th season as the host of the 680 FNF Scoreboard Show.
A die-hard Atlanta Falcons fan, Steve has been a season-ticket holder since the late 1980s, and the Falcon fanbase has always turned to him for straight talk and an honest breakdown of the club.
West earned his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
Residing in Sandy Springs, Steve’s interests include fitness, travel, and pop culture
Karl Werl begins his fourteenth season as the lead play-by-play voice and one of the original members of 680 the Fan’s Friday Night Football. Karl has worn many hats in broadcasting throughout the Southeast since he entered the business in 2001. He originally started with 790 the Zone as a producer and sports reporter covering the University of Georgia, Atlanta Falcons, and Atlanta Braves as well as producing weekend and daily shows. He started doing play-by-play with Emory University calling baseball, softball, and basketball then had an opportunity to be the Director of Broadcasting and Play-by-Play voice for the Fayetteville SwampDogs of the Coastal Plain League out of Fayetteville, NC where he was selected to call the All-Star game in Wilson, NC and the Petite Cup Championship. While in North Carolina, Karl called high school football and hosted a Saturday morning high school football recap show. Upon his return to Atlanta, Karl returned to the business sector but continued to stay in broadcasting doing freelance play-by-play work for GASports.com and Georgia News Network calling the GHSA Football State Semifinals and Finals, Georgia Public Broadcasting calling basketball games and calling regular season and playoff baseball for the Sunbelt League before being tabbed as the play-by-play voice for 680 the Fan’s Friday Night Football.
Karl graduated from the University of Georgia in Athens in 1993 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. Along with Mr. Hanover while at The Zone he created the now defunct Werl Ball and finished a close second to Mr. Hanover’s fraternity in the All Row Sports Championship and still thinks they would have won if The Stroke’s blade had not cracked. I’m not bitter.
