Well, that didn’t take long! After exiting the Las Vegas airwaves on Friday to pursue opportunities in the Mile High city, Mike Pritchard has found employment.
The former Colorado star and NFL wide receiver has been hired by Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan as co-host of the station’s new midday program “Pritchard and Cecil”. The show will air weekdays from 9a-10a MT starting August 16th.
“We’re thrilled to have Mike back on the air in the same place where his illustrious football career began,” said Armen Williams, program director for Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan. “This addition serves to solidify our mission to provide the best knowledge and inside information regarding the NFL and football in general.”
Said Pritchard: “I’m beyond excited to become a member of the Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan family and be a contributor to one of the strongest lineups in all of sports talk radio. It’s an honor to work side by side with The Fan’s great talent, and I am ready for this remarkable opportunity. In 1987, I forged some lifelong friendships at CU. I’m thrilled to be back to build new relationships in the great state of Colorado.”
The most valuable player of Colorado’s 1990 national championship team, Prichard played for the Buffaloes from 1987 to 1990. He was drafted 13th overall in the 1991 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons, and went on to enjoy nine seasons in the league, spending time as a member of the Falcons, Denver Broncos, and Seattle Seahawks.
Upon returning home to his native Las Vegas, Pritchard began a career in sports media. He served as co-host of the “Mitch & Pritch Show” on ESPN Las Vegas 1100 AM/100.9 FM, and became the color commentator for UNLV football.
