Doug Konkel

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.
