Social media chair Michael McMunn was provided the first official radio interview for the ATL Cast.
V-103's Greg Street spoke with Michael for several members at Thursday evenings Draft Block Party hosted by The Atlanta Falcons at Mercedes Benz Stadium.
Michael spoke about the origins of The Cast and our mission. He touched on the ways we're giving back the community and that we are actively seeking members who want to display their love for our team and for our city.
Special thanks to Michael and to Carlton Grant for getting the information and interview together. We'd also like thank to the entire Cast team at the Benz Thursday for helping represent our club so well.
The month of April was an exciting one for the ATL Cast.
It saw tremendous growth in membership and momentum, new members stepping into roles in the 'working cast,' a meeting with Falcons executives, and ,of course, a trip to Dallas for the NFL Draft.
President Bill Ingram met with Steve Cannon, Rich McKay, and several other Falcons employees to discuss the state of The ATL Cast and how we could further grow our partnership with the Falcons as the 'Official Supporters Group.'
The conversations went very well and our vision for the club excited the team when Bill presented them with the business plan moving forward.
We outlined several requests we had for the Falcons and they were very well received. They will be discussed in future meetings moving forward as discussions with Atlanta continue.
The club also provided the team with ATL Cast scarves which they loved.
There are exciting things on the horizon for the club and it will undoubtedly outgrow our wildest expectations within its first year.
Be sure to attend the swag party and future Cast meetings to hear about the exciting things coming our way!
The ATL Cast has been tapped.
Tasked with finding 50 of the rowdiest Atlanta fans available, the Falcons knew exactly where to turn.
This season's draft in Dallas will feature a new 'inner circle' of fans for each team. Teams appear to be slotted near their division rivals to increase the energy surrounding the event.
The Atlanta Falcons reached out to our President, Bill Ingram, and asked us how we'd feel about representing the birds on the national stage. Of course, we obliged.
50 cast members will travel Thursday morning to Dallas to attend the first 2 rounds of the draft.... accompanied by the Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders.
Cast members not attending the draft are still encouraged to attend the draft party at Mercedes Benz Stadium for the first round.
Here's to a brand new class of Falcons for us to enjoy next season!

Since Friday afternoon, after the Falcons email endorsing The ATL CAST went out, we have 42 new CAST members!
First, Welcome to our new members. We are so thrilled to have your voice added to ours in making the Benz LOUD and INTIMIDATING for other NFL teams!
I want to thank all our Club members who put in all the hard work to get us to this point as the Official Supporters Club of the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons have taken notice, believe me, the Tickets to the Draft was a nice nod.
Speaking of the draft, Tyler Hargrove of the Falcons met up with me at the Coca-Cola Spectacular. He is coordinating the NFL Draft with us. He has given us 50 rally scarfs for the event, and mentioned how truly excited the organization is about the CAST representing on the Draft Floor!
I have a plan to really catch the eyes of the Falcons Management and TV. I will be checking out getting Big Head signs of Coach Quinn, Arthur Blank, and Thomas Dimitroff.
In addition, we will have our Bass Drum and megaphones. The idea is that we march into the floor area as a group chanting and making some noise. Tyler believes the NFL will clear this. They want a rowdy and loud crowd, and we will deliver!
The ATL CAST have sold out of their 50 ticket allotment for the NFL Draft. Travel arrangements are now being made.
We received an email from the Atlanta Falcons partnership group, and they are quite excited that we will be there. This is also the group that arranged the block of rooms
Jen John is checking to see if we can have our bass drum and megaphones at the Draft. She offered, we didn't ask! The feeling is that the Falcons want the ATL to stand out in Fan support amoung'st the other NFL team's fans. Done!
This is also the CASTs most excellent chance to be seen and heard by the Falcons ownership, management and coaching staff. Coach Quinn will take notice, to say the least! WE ARE THE MOST FAN-ATICAL FANS IN THE WORLD!
The Atlanta Falcons have arranged a block of 25 rooms at the Omni Hotel Mandalay. The rooms are $169 a night, (posted price is $279). Our club has put down the necessary deposit.
All those needing rooms, please let Bill (Bill@atlcast,com) or Ryan (firstname.lastname@example.org) know your room preference.
We are exploring using Champion Coach Charters for bus transportation. This is the company the Falcons use, and its traveling in style with TVs, DVD and CD player, Wifi, power outlets and reclining seats with footrests.
If you're interested in traveling with the CAST, let Bill or Ryan know.
