The seven-year NFL veteran has signed on with Sports Radio 104.3 The Fan (KKFN-FM) and will be offering insight and perspective every Sunday morning at 8 a.m. Franklin, who retired from football in May, was originally drafted in the second round by the Denver Broncos in 2011, and spent the majority of his career with the club.
“I’ve known that this is what I’ve wanted to do after football for years,” Franklin said. “In 2012, I started calling into Sandy Clough’s show weekly on The Fan. I loved the interaction that the sports radio platform provided. It’s an honor to now be on the same team as a lot of these guys that I’ve listened to my whole career.”
“We’re really excited to have Orlando as part of our championship team at 104.3 The Fan,” said Armen Williams, 104.3 The Fan Program Director. “He called me a few weeks after he retired, and I went to dinner with him and his wife, Kiaana. It was clear right away that he had this sincere passion to be on The Fan. It’s great to have Orlando as part of our game day on-air presentation.”
