DENVER – Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan (KKFN-FM) will turn 25 years old, March 6, 2020. To commemorate the occasion, the station will launch a campaign culminating in a 25th Anniversary Celebration to take place this June.
“Twenty-five years ago, we launched Denver’s first 24-hour, all-sports radio station. Over the years, The Fan has featured some of Denver’s most loved personalities, starting with Doug Moe and Tom Green — who signed the station on the air — to legendary personalities like Irv Brown, Joe Williams and Sandy Clough, who continues to entertain Denver sports fans today,” said Bonneville Denver Senior Vice President and Market Manager Bob Call. “Through the years, The Fan has been built on great live and local talent. We are grateful for our many listeners and business partners who have been a part of this remarkable legacy.”
“During the past 25 years, The Fan has become a part of the fabric that makes up the Denver sports community. I grew up listening to The Fan talk about my favorite teams every day, as I know so many Denver sports fans continue to do today,” said Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan Program Director Raj Sharan. “We will be returning to our original logo and colors as just one way to honor the hosts and listeners who’ve helped grow The Fan into what it is today.”
During the anniversary celebration, Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan will welcome back influential figures from the station’s history for a reunion broadcast that will allow Denver listeners to reconnect with talent from the past.
