Raj Sharan Rises To KKFN Denver Program Director
Sharan has served as Assistant Program Director of the stations since 2016 and previously held the APD/Executive Producer duties at Front Range Sports Network. He fills the opening created by Armen Williams’ exit to Entercom’s 610 KILT Houston last month.
Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan (KKFN-FM) and ESPN Denver 1600 (KEPN-AM) announced today that Raj Sharan has been appointed Program Director for both stations effective immediately.
Sharan has spent the last three years at Bonneville Denver as Assistant Program Director and Executive Producer for Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan and ESPN Denver 1600. Prior to that, he held the position of Assistant Program Director and Executive Producer for the former Front Range Sports Network in Denver. Sharan also served as radio play-by-play voice for University of Denver Men’s Basketball from 2015-2017.
“I couldn’t be happier to give Raj the opportunity to program Denver’s biggest sports brand, 104.3 The Fan,” said Bonneville Denver VP/Market Manager Bob Call. Raj has a natural leadership quality that is apparent the moment you meet him. His creativity, superb coaching skills and knowledge of winning sports content makes him the perfect choice to lead 104.3 The Fan into the future.”
“I came to the Denver market a decade ago with the goal of working at Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan,” said Sharan. “I’m so incredibly thankful to Bonneville and Bob Call for giving me this opportunity to live out my dream. I’m honored, overwhelmed and ecstatic to have the chance to lead such an iconic staple of the local Denver sports community. In addition, I’m excited to continue working with ESPN Radio, bringing the biggest events in sports to the Denver market.”
Sharan replaces Armen Williams who left to program for KILT-AM in Houston.
