|RADIO ONLINE | Friday, April 19, 2019|
Bonneville Denver inks an agreement with Tom Nalen to join KKFN-FM (Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan) as a fulltime air talent, effective April 22. He'll team with Darren "DMac" McKee on "The Drive" weekdays from 3-6pm. Nalen is a member of the Denver Broncos Ring of Fame and one of the most honored players in franchise history. A two-time champion from Super Bowl XXXII and Super Bowl XXXIII, he's been nominated for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. During his celebrated career, Nalen served as team captain and was named to the Pro Bowl five times.
In addition to his time in the NFL, Nalen brings significant radio experience to his new role with KKFN. Previously, he co-hosted weekday programs in Denver with Kroenke Sports and Entertainment and Front Range Sports Network.
"I'm still pinching myself. I cannot believe Tom Nalen is my new radio partner," McKee said. "Our friendship goes back to his days playing for the Broncos and continued after he retired. I honestly don't know if I've ever been more excited or happy professionally following this move. To host ‘The Drive' every day with Tom Nalen is an absolute dream come true."
"Similar to Kevin Durant, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em right?," Nalen joked. "I'm thrilled to be joining The Fan, it's going to be a blast challenging DMac and having fun with him every day."
"While Tommy's football credentials are unquestionable, it's his personality that made him the perfect fit as our new co-host of ‘The Drive'," said Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan PD Raj Sharan. "His sense of humor mixed with blunt honesty and a heart of gold add up to one of the most loveable figures in Denver sports history."
