104.3 The Fan Announces Weekday Lineup Adjustments

Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan in Denver has announced a few adjustments to its weekday programming schedule. As part of the moves, the station adds two additional hours of evening programming and extends one of its midday programs.

Long-time Denver sports personality Sandy Clough, one of the most recognizable voices in the region for the past four decades, will host weeknights from 9p-11p MT starting Tuesday, January 16th. Clough previously worked in middays on the radio station.

“Sandy Clough is an institution in the Denver sports radio market,” said 104.3 The Fan program director Armen Williams said. “In the evening, Denver sports fans are looking for an outlet, and having Sandy on from 9 to 11 will allow him to not only give perspective on Broncos headlines but also provide postgame reaction to the Rockies, Nuggets, Avalanche, and other Denver sports events.”

The other change taking place involves Mike Pritchard and Cecil Lammey. The midday hosts will extend their daily program from one hour to three hours, occupying the 9a-12p MT timeslot.

Pritchard and Cecil have earned this opportunity” said Williams. “Having the two of them on the air for three hours daily takes our station to another level. Mike and Cecil have a work ethic and passion for the game of football that can be felt through the radio.”

Pritchard, a former first round draft pick and nine-year wide receiver in the NFL, played for three teams, including the Denver Broncos. He was most valuable player of the University of Colorado’s 1990 national championship team. Prior to joining The Fan in August Pritchard spent a few years hosting a weekday radio program in Las Vegas. Lammey on the other hand has accumulated nearly 15 years of radio experience in the Denver market serving in a variety of roles, including sports talk host, fantasy football expert, and Broncos insider.

The Fan’s new lineup starting next week will look like this:

6a-9a – Schlereth and Evans (Mark Schlereth and Mike Evans)

9a-12p – Pritchard and Cecil (Mike Pritchard and Cecil Lammey)

12p-3p – Stokley and Zach (Brandon Stokley and Zach Bye)

3p-6p – The Drive with Big Al and DMac (Alfred Williams and Darren McKee)

6p-9p – The Drive Reloaded (Alfred Williams and Darren McKee)

9p-11p – Sandy Clough

The dawn of a new sports radio signal in Dallas has come and who else to be the first voice you hear, but the Old Grey Wolf Mike Rhyner.

97.1 the Eagle stopped their regular programming late Monday morning and began stunting, the technique radio stations use to separate listeners from old programming into new programming. They began by playing songs with the word “freak” in them then went into a continuous loop of “The Waiting is the Hardest Part” by Tom Petty until 3p CT. Then, a voiceover detailing the Eagle’s history transitioned into the voice that Dallas-Forth Worth residents have gotten to know so well, Mike Rhyner.

“So, where were we?” began Rhyner.

He would go on to relive his final moments at The Ticket in Dallas. He said he was getting his “head around being a Paw Paw” before getting a call from Ben Rogers of the Ben and Skin Show and thus an idea for The Freak began to take shape.

After that, the show’s intro music played and Rhyner welcomed in Mike Sirois and before you knew it, the guys were wondering about a quarterback controversy in Dallas. 97.1 The Freak is off and running.

Howie Rose has cut back on his travel schedule as the radio voice of the New York Mets in 2022, but he says that no place is off limits during the playoffs.

“Oh, I’m all-in if they play in Timbuktu,” Rose told Newsday. “A lot of this was designed to make sure that I had enough reserve to be able to handle anything that comes up in terms of road trips.”

Rose, 68, readies for what is likely to be a Wild Card series start to the playoffs and because of their Wild Card status, a win there could mean a trip to Los Angeles for the National League Divisional Series.

“It’s not exactly like managing Edwin Diaz’s innings, but I think that doing the number of games that I have and more to the point, being able to take the breaks that I have, has enabled me to approach the postseason with a clear mind and the full-speed-ahead attitude that you need to have.”
