Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan Celebrates its 25th Anniversary

DENVER — Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan (KKFN-FM) will turn 25 years old on Friday, March 6.

The Denver sports station will celebrate the big anniversary with special programming through June.

"Twenty-five years ago, we launched Denver’s first 24-hour, all-sports radio station," said Bonneville Denver Senior Vice President and Market Manager Bob Call. "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."

For its 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," according to a release.

"During the past 25 years, The Fan has become a part of the fabric that makes up the Denver sports community," said Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan Program Director Raj Sharan. "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. 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."
