LINCOLN FINANCIAL MEDIA has named NATE LUNDY PD of Sports KKFN (THE FAN)/DENVER. Staring in FEBRUARY, LUNDY replaces TIM SPENCE, who will focus on his duties as PD of KEPN-A, ESPN Radio 1600.
Previously, LUNDY was Dir./Live Production for the video game maker EA SPORTS. He has also programmed WOAI/KTKR-A/SAN ANTONIO, WREC/KWAM-A/MEMPHIS and WSCC-A/CHARLESTON, SC. He will continue to serve as an occasional weekend host on FOX SPORTS RADIO.
"I told NATE that ORLANDO and DENVER weather is very similar -- 300 days of sunshine," LFM RADIO/DENVER SVP/GM BOB CALL said. "I didn't tell him about the difference in the other 65 days just yet.
"Seriously, NATE is the final piece we need for KKFN to become a major sports force and consistent ratings leader in DENVER, the best sports city in AMERICA," CALL added. "His strong programming background combined with a love of sports and outstanding business sense is a perfect complement to THE FAN and our cluster of stations."
"The opportunity to program great sports radio in a city like Denver is like a dream come true for me," LUNDY said. "Well, at least the dreams that don't involve ALYSSA MILANO ... Passionate sports fans combined with a company that has a passion for great radio is absolutely perfect. We'll just have to see if ALYSSA would like her own show.
"I have believed for years that the evolution of sports talk to the FM dial would revitalize the format," he continued. "It’s such a good feeling to have the chance to work with a team that sees the same opportunity."
