But Mike and Coach Mac are not the entire Titans Radio team.
Rhett Bryan returns for his 24th year on the broadcast to serve as executive producer. He will co-host Titans Radio's one-hour pregame show, "Titans Countdown" with Amie Wells, who is in her ninth season with the Titans. During the games, she serves as the team's sideline reporter.

The Titans Radio team extends to the group of great radio stations who carry Titans programming each and every week. Led by flagship station WGFX 104.5 FM ("104.5 the Zone") in Nashville, the Titans Radio partners have been an incredible staple of telling the story for the Tennessee Titans for nearly a quarter of century. One of the newest Titans Radio partners for 2021 is WKIM 98.9 FM in Memphis. Known as "NewsTalk 98.9: The Roar of Memphis", WKIM becomes not only the home for Titans Radio in Memphis, but also the official home for Memphis Tigers athletics.

Murrow Award and is a member of four Halls of Fame, including both the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame and the Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame.
But describing one play over 20 years ago made him famous. On January 8, 2000, Mike called one of the greatest plays in NFL history, "The Music City Miracle", a last-second touchdown that gave the Tennessee Titans a playoff win over the Buffalo Bills. ESPN named Titans Radio's description of the play as one of the ten best radio calls in American sports history.
As the Titans' Vice President of Broadcasting, Mike has a variety of duties outside of calling the Titans' games on Sundays. He hosts multiple Titans Radio shows, The Mike Vrabel Show and Titans All Access television programs, and the official Titans podcast known as The OTP.

He is an in-demand emcee, spokesman and speaker all over the Mid-South.
After starting his broadcast career at WAGG-TV in Franklin at age 17, Mike worked for the legendary John Ward with the Vol Radio Network from 1987-98. He also hosted one of Tennessee's first daily sports talk shows from 1989-98 on WIVK Radio in Knoxville and covered University of Tennessee sports for both WIVK Radio and WBIR-TV.
A native Tennessean, Mike was born in Knoxville and raised in Franklin. Mike and his wife, Michelle, have two children, Abby, and Matthew, and two golden retrievers, "Major" and "Molly".
