His voice is familiar, his face is recognizable and his name is unforgettable -- I'm talking about Griffy2K, Atlanta's multi-talented radio-personality. As a co-host of HOT 107.9 (WHTA-FM)'s "A-Team Morning Show," Griffy2K provides comedic and candid commentary. His outspoken style and carefree nature have made him a popular host of several weekly comedy events across Atlanta, as well as an award-winning sports broadcaster.

Griffy2K hosts comedy nights throughout the week, including Psycho Sundays at the Punchline, Comedy with Man in the Band at Barley's on Wednesdays and Comedy Night at Throbacks on Thursdays.

He played four years of semi-pro football in Germany before he began sports commentating. In 1999, he won the Georgia Sportscaster of the Year Award and in 2004, he was nominated for an Emmy for his commentary on "Street Skillz." Now he's pitching a new show to networks called "Done Deal Sports."

Griffy regularly visits juvenile detention centers and group homes to speak to at-risk youths on behalf of Positive Vibes, a nonprofit program he created 13 years ago.

Griffy2K joined the "A-Team Morning Show" on HOT 107.9 a year-and-a-half ago. He had previously worked on the "Frank-Ski Morning Show" for V-103 from 1998-2001.

In October, catch Griffy's performance on "The Big Black Comedy Show," which will air on Showtime.
