DENVER – Bonneville Denver announced today that Nick Ferguson will be joining Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan as a full-time on-air talent. “The Safety Blitz with Nick Ferguson” will be heard weekdays from 9 a.m. until noon, starting April 29. In addition, Cecil Lammey was named digital talent for 1043TheFan.com.
Ferguson was a safety in the National Football League for 10 seasons, including five with the Denver Broncos from 2003-2007. He also played for the New York Jets and Houston Texans. He comes to Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan after spending the 2018 NFL season as an assistant coach with the San Francisco 49ers. Prior to that, Ferguson participated in coaching internships with the 49ers, Broncos, Seattle Seahawks, and Houston Texans.
“The city of Denver and its fans have always held a special place in my heart,” Ferguson said. “Being a part of an organization with similar values enticed me to join the Bonneville family. As the community gets to know me, they’ll see my mission has always been about helping others.”
“Nick is an absolute ball of energy that Broncos Country is going to fall in love with,” said Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan program director Raj Sharan. “In his playing days with the Broncos, he would interact with fans and teammates while stretching at training camp. He called it ‘The Nick Ferguson Show,’ and it was often the most entertaining time of practice. Nick’s time as a recent NFL coach and former Broncos player combined with his incredible charisma makes him an extremely unique and valuable addition to our team.”
He brings radio experience from NFL on TuneIn, NBC Sports Radio, 790 The Zone in Atlanta, and 980 The Beast in Los Angeles. Ferguson has also written for The Players’ Tribune and worked as a youth and high school ambassador for the NFL. Previously, he participated in the NFL’s Broadcast Bootcamp, a program to assist NFL players in developing skills for post-playing careers in media.
Ferguson graduated from Georgia Tech with a B.S. in Business Administration and Management and earned his master’s degree in Sports and Fitness Administration from Canisius College. He will be relocating to Colorado from California with his wife, Glady, and their three children.
“The Safety Blitz with Nick Ferguson” will be co-hosted by John Davis. Davis has been with Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan since the summer of 2018, hosting and filling in for a variety of different programs.
Lammey’s new role as digital talent will allow him to focus on creating content for 1043TheFan.com and Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan’s social media platforms.
“I am beyond excited to be at the cutting edge of exciting changes coming to 1043TheFan.com,” Lammey said. “With all of our various digital platforms, I’ll be able to bring fans inside the game of football in fascinating new ways.”
“Cecil has an aptitude for compelling digital content,” said 1043TheFan.com digital editor James Merilatt. “Fans will see, hear, and read Cecil’s thoughts on the Broncos, fantasy football, the NFL Draft, and eSports across our many digital channels.”
Mike Pritchard, who previously co-hosted with Lammey, will remain with Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan in a fill-in role, allowing him to focus on his small business.
