There’s a big shakeup at 104.3 The Fan.
Bonneville Denver on Monday announced a new weekday lineup for the sports radio station that will begin Tuesday, which includes major changes to its flagship show, “The Drive.”
Longtime “Drive” host Darren McKee, better known to listeners as DMac, confirmed on X he is no longer with the company with a tweet.
“On to the next thing,” McKee posted Monday morning.

Zach Bye, who spent years working along side Brandon Stokley on the “Stokley and Josh” show, will now team up with former Denver South, CU Buffs and Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay on “The Drive” from 2-6 p.m.
“I can’t put into words how thrilled I am to team up with Zach and begin my new career in this city that means absolutely everything to me,” Lindsay said in a news release. “I know what it means to be from Denver, I’ve lived here my entire life. This is my city. This is my home. I’m going to give it everything I’ve got, just like I did every time I stepped on the field here.”
Replacing Bye as Stokley’s partner is Josh Dover, who spent the last seven years on air at Kroenke Sports and Entertainment. Their new show, “Stokley and Josh” will air weekdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“I grew up here in Denver listening to The Fan and began my radio career dreaming of becoming a host on the station,” Dover said in a news release. “I’m pinching myself that I’ll have the opportunity to team up with Stoke every day to talk about the teams I love and do it on The Fan.”
Mark Schlereth and Mike Evans’ morning show will now be four hours, running weekdays from 6 to 10 a.m.
Orlando Franklin, who had been hosting on weeknights, also announced his departure from the station on X.
“I was just informed that my services will no longer be needed or wanted at @DenverSportsCom,” Orlando Franklin posted. “They canceled our show. Funny how things work. Thanks to all the listeners locally for your support over the years. On to bigger and better.”
