“I have never been part of a work environment more talented, dynamic and forward-thinking than here at The Fan,” said Carni. “I couldn’t be more proud to work with such an eclectic team and help continue setting the bar for sports talk here in Denver and across the country.”

“Watching Richie’s growth over the past five years has been nothing short of extraordinary,” said 104.3 The Fan and ESPN Denver 1600 Program Director Raj Sharan. “He brings a tremendous level of maturity and unmatched work ethic, and we have full confidence in his abilities to help manage our terrestrial day-to-day operations.”

Under his direction, “The Drive” finished #1 in the targeted demographic of men 25-54 years old multiple times, including achieving a station-record high rating for the daypart in October of 2020. He was named the station’s Executive Producer in January, and now takes over as Assistant Program Director for Parker Hillis, who was recently named Brand Manager of Audacy’s KILT-AM in Houston.
