KOA-AM & FM/Denver inks a five-year broadcast agreement extension for veteran air personality Alfred Williams, known as "Big Al." Prior to joining the iHeartMedia News/Talk outlet in September, 2019, he served as sports air personality at crosstown Bonneville KKFN-FM and has been a staple for the sports community for decades. As a former NFL player, Williams retired from the Denver Broncos after his team received Super Bowl victories in 1997 and 1998. In addition, he has been recognized as a standout linebacker for the University of Colorado and was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2010.

"Big Al has set the standard for afternoon drive radio," said iHeartMedia Denver President Tim Hager. "This long-term renewal is a testament to Al's impact and importance to iHeartMedia, KOA, our partners and his legion of fans throughout Colorado. Not only is he a tremendous talent and a great man, but he is the type of guy who you want on your team no matter what you are doing and we are so glad he's a part of our team."

"I'm happy and excited to sign a multi-year extension with one of the most dynamic and innovative companies in the world," added Big Al. "I've learned so much in a short time about the strength of iHeart and I've met radio giants and artists that would make anyone blush. I'm still learning about all the areas that I can contribute to and I'm amazed by the many opportunities this role gives me to connect with the Denver community and do what I love."
