DENVER — Former Denver Bronco Nate Jackson is joining Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan (KKFN-FM) as an on-air host.
Jackson will be heard across all of the station’s programs as a contributor and fill-in host, in addition to contributing digital content at 1043TheFan.com.
Jackson spent six seasons on the Denver Broncos as a wide receiver and tight end from 2003-2008.
Jackson's memoir, “Slow Getting Up: A Story of NFL Survival from the Bottom of the Pile,” is a New York Times best seller. He has also contributed written pieces for a number of outlets, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Deadspin.
“Nate is a fascinating person with incredible perspective on sports and life based on his experiences,” said Raj Sharan, program director for Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan. “While he’s obviously a talented writer, Nate also has a very entertaining and warm personality that we look forward to developing as one of our on-air talents.”
