Sandy Clough is Back

Veteran sports talker Sandy Clough returned to The Fan 104.3 this week with a new daily radio show that’s all his own.

“As one of the most recognizable voices in Denver Sports Radio history, it’s great to have Sandy in a timeslot where he has flourished in the past,” said KKFN’s program director Armen Williams. “We’re excited to have his unmistakable presence leading into the second half of the day.”

Clough’s absence is being left unexplained by both the station and host, likely because it involved a dispute with management.
