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 on-air spat between SEC Network host Peter Burns and analyst Ben Watson continues to be bandied about in sports media circles, with 93.7 The Fan hosts Andrew Fillipponi and Chris Mueller discussing the topic Tuesday.

“I’m on Team Burns,” Fillipponi said.

“Forget who’s team you’re on,” Chris Mueller said. “I think you’ve do have to keep the wives and children out of this.”

“What are you talking about, keep the wives and out of it?!,” Fillipponi asked.

“Do we believe this is work or shoot here?,” Mueller wondered.

“Oh, I think this is real,” Fillpponi added, which Mueller agreed.

“Do you think a close fist from Ben Watson hit Peter Burns?,” Mueller asked.

“No, I think he picked him up by the lapels,” Fillipponi said.

When the subject of Watson’s religion was brought up, Fillipponi then pointed out the absurdity of the situation.

“So wait a minute? Because you believe in Jesus Christ you care about your wife more than other people? What are you talking about?”

“I think he might have a shorter fuse and not taking in humor that Peter Burns was giving out,” Mueller said.

“It was an innocuous joke!,” Fillipponi stated. “It wasn’t a joke! Why is it in bad taste?”

Mueller then added the idea of Watson’s wife texting Burns insinuates there’s an inappropriate relationship.

Craig Carton: Booger McFarland’s Zach Wilson Analysis ‘An Embarrasment’

Craig Carton

ESPN NFL analyst Booger McFarland raised eyebrows on Monday Night Countdown this week by saying New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has never been held accountable for his actions because he was a “young man who grew up with a lot of money”. WFAN afternoon host Craig Carton called out McFarland’s comments Tuesday as outlandish.

“It was an embarrasment,” Carton said. “Someone should ask Booger McFarland if his kids — who grew up with amazing wealth — have accountability in their lives or if having a little bit of money in your pocket immediately discounts the possibility to have accountability. He’s an idiot and we learned that last night.”

“It’s funny that Steve Young was on the other side of it,” Evan Roberts noted. “Because a long time ago, Steve Young criticized Chris Simms because he’s the son of a famous quarterback.”

“You don’t have to invent reasons for why Zach Wilson isn’t playing well,” added Carton. “Just watch his tape. He’s not playing well. Maybe he’s just not good!”

Carton later said NFL reporters “will try to make a name for themselves by putting out a story” about quarterbacks who take responsibility for their teams failures, while Wilson wouldn’t accept the blame.

Peter Burns and Ben Watson shared an awkward exchange during the halftime show of an SEC Network football game over the weekend, and many are still debating whether Watson walking off the set was serious or not. Count part of the cast of The Greg Hill Show on WEEI as doubters.

“That was a a bit,” Courtney Cox said. “That was absolutely a bit.”

“Yeah, unlike the Chris Rock/Will Smith thing, I assume that was a bit,” Hill said. “I can’t believe that Ben Watson is really angry about that.”

“I dunno, man. There’s been a lot of speculation that it isn’t,” Jermaine Wiggins added. “There are people who are very sensitive about you clowning on them or joking with them. Especially with joking about their wife. Some people can’t handle jokes like that.”

After a back-and-forth with Cox about the legitimacy of the joke, Wiggins concluded by saying for some folks family is off limits.

“I’ve learned something in my 47 years on this Earth: be careful when you’re talking about somebody’s wife and their kids. ‘Cause not everybody jokes the same way.”
