Denver’s best sports life partnership is breaking up. Say goodbye to Vic and Gary.

Some divorces are messy. Sometimes folks just move on. Either way it’s sad when two people who were just too perfect together split up. That’s what’s happening to the greatest TV sports anchor duo in Denver. Vic Lombardi and Gary Miller from CBS4 will soon no longer be “Vic and Gary”; rather they’ll be Vic. Gary is leaving.

Some divorces are messy. Sometimes folks just move on. Either way it’s sad when two people who were just too perfect together split up. That’s what’s happening to the greatest TV sports anchor duo in Denver. Vic Lombardi and Gary Miller from CBS4 will soon no longer be “Vic and Gary”; rather they’ll be Vic. Gary is leaving.  

People have been wondering for quite some time when the Vic and Gary radio show would return to the airwaves. Sadly, it looks like that’s not going to happen. Instead, Vic Lombardi is going to remain a sports anchor at Denver’s CBS affiliate while Gary Miller departs to begin a new life as the play-by-play announcer for CSU athletics, the host of the coaches shows and an afternoon radio host at Denver’s ESPN radio 102.3 / 105.5 FM. They’re breaking up.

Sources in the world of Denver sports radio tell me that Miller will be the “anchor” personality at ESPN radio and that he will take over the 3-6pm slot currently occupied by Nate Kreckman and Charles “CJ” Johnson. We have to assume that he will have at least one co-host and possibly two. One thing we know is that Vic Lombardi will not be one of them.  

Miller might be teamed with recent Broncos Ring-of-Fame inductee Tom Nalen and the very talented Kreckman. We have not heard yet whether the station will retain local programming in the early-afternoon (noon-3) slot, currently occupied by Les Shapiro and Tom Nalen, or if they will thin the talent herd and go with streamed syndicated programming instead. We are told that massive changes are coming to the lineup.

Front Range Sports, the company that operates the ESPN radio signal in Denver, is owned by investors including Tom “Lou from Littleton” Manoogian, “Dealin’” Doug Moreland, Adam Schefter and others. The company has struggled at times, fueling speculation that it could go off the air. The move to hire Gary Miller seems to refute that notion. Although, it seems likely that the station will trim staff regardless. Hopefully all will turn out well. Denver is one lucky city to have three quality sports radio stations.

Gary Miller’s new show, regardless of who he does it with, will air opposite of “the Drive” with Dmac and Big Al (Alfred Williams) at 104.3 the Fan, currently the most popular sports talk show in the market.

More updates as events warrant ...
