Dream Adds Babi Mac as DJ and In-Arena Host
“We are excited to have Babi Mac join the Atlanta Dream Family as a DJ and in-arena host,” said President and General Manager Angela Taylor. “She is a talented and versatile performer with a connection to women’s basketball in the Southeast, and will bring energy and excitement to our home games. We believe she will be a valuable asset as we continue to enhance the game-day experience for our fans in Philips Arena.”
"I am so humbled, blessed and excited to be a part of the Atlanta Dream,” said Babi Mac. “It's amazing to me that I have the opportunity to still be a part of the game. I look forward to bringing an element of excitement to the Atlanta Dream home game experience.”
Babi Mac, whose real name is Cait McMahan, was a two-time national champion while playing for Pat Summit at Tennessee. She was a high school All-American for Heritage H.S. in Maryville, Tenn., before knee injuries hindered her career at Tennessee, but she was part of the Lady Vols’ 2007 and 2008 back-to-back national championship squads.
Since leaving Tennessee, Babi Mac has enjoyed a blossoming career as a recording artist, DJ and on-air personality. She describes her music as a hybrid of rock, hip hop, pop and country, and has toured across the U.S. on multiple stages. She is also currently the DJ for ESPN’s College Gameday football show.
Babi Mac was featured on truTV’s Full Throttle Saloon, and her video “Rock Out” was produced in conjunction with Turner Broadcasting/truTV and Jesse Dupree. She also signed a recording deal with Rock-2-Def Mighty Loud Music with industry executives Walt Cusick and Jesse Dupree.
