    Default KKFN Marks 25th Anniversary

    From Radio Insight:




    Bonneville Sports “104.3 The Fan” KKFN Longmont/Denver has announced it will launch a campaign tied into tomorrow’s 25th anniversary of its switch to Sports Talk.

    950 KKFN Denver completed its gradual shift from Country KYGO to Sports on March 6, 1995 that had begun the previous October with the debut of its afternoon show hosted by Doug Moe and Tom Green. Thirteen years later on March 6, 2008 the station moved to FM as it replaced Smooth Jazz “CD 104.3” KJCD. To mark the occasion, KKFN is returning to a variant of its original logo and will launch a three month campaign that will culminate with a 25th Anniversary Celebration to be held in June that will include an on-air reunion show with former station talent.


    Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan (KKFN-FM) will turn 25 years old tomorrow, 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.

    Yeah, this is an incredible accomplishment for 104.3! Who knew people would like sports on that station?!?! I wonder now?
    What made them such a hit? When news back then tried and failed on FM, but The fan succeeded on FM? Not even Mile High Sports Radio could make the ran for it?
    So I wonder what is their secret to their success?
