They say that, in Colorado, if you don't like the weather just wait five minutes.
The same is true for the schedule on Sports Talk Radio. 104.3 the fan launched its latest shake-up just this week, moving stalwart Sandy Clough, largely considered to be the market's most cerebral host, to late morning (9-noon) and installing Program Director and Nationally syndicated (Fox Sports Radio) host Nate Lundy into Clough's old evening slot (6-9).
The new schedule also pushes the early morning program with Joel Klatt and Mike Evans back a half hour. It will now begin at 5:30 AM - which has got to be brutal for Klatt who covers the Rockies for Root Sports in the evening. The show used to to begin at 6 - which was plenty tough enough for a guy who sometimes works past 10pm. That extra 30 minutes doesn't seem like much - but, to Klatt's it only means more lost sleep. He's not complaining, though. He told us months ago that the schedule affords him valueable time with his young son during the afternoons.
Lundy's new show will bring a distinctly different flavor to the evening slot. His style is more youthful that Clough's. Lundy is no novice, though. He has a wealth of radio experience, having previously programmed stations in San Antonio, Memphis and Charleston.
While in San Antonio, Lundy became close friends with Jessica Redfield, then an intern at 760 the Ticket, where Lundy worked as P.D.. Her move to Denver was partially motivated by the fact that Lundy and his friend, Peter Burns were already here. On the horrible Friday when we all learned of her passing, Nate managed to choke out one very powerful and unforgettable segment of radio before handing off the mic.
Lundy had been formerly been paired with former C.U. standout and NFL Pro Bowl linebacker, Chad Brown.
January 1, 2012 will be a sad day for fans of local Sports coverage. Denver Sports Radio, 102.3 the Ticket will become an ESPN Radio affiliate. Gone are Vic and Gary and a slew of other favorites.
