KKFN (104.3 FM, "104.3 The Fan") is a sports radio station serving the Denver-Boulder area. The Lincoln Financial Media outlet broadcasts with an effective radiated power of 91 kW and is licensed to Longmont, Colorado.
The frequency was home to KLMO-FM. In 1988, the station was sold to another local owner and the calls were switched to KQKS and adopted the moniker "KS104". KQKS was home to 104.3 until January 1997, when Jefferson-Pilot (now part of Lincoln Financial Group) moved the calls and Rhythmic Top 40 format to 107.5. After the move, on January 19, J-P placed a classic country format on the signal. But by 2000, they would move that format over to the AM band so they can fill the smooth jazz void that was left open by KHIH after the latter flipped to Top 40 that year. The station adopted the call letters KJCD shortly after the move.
In June 2007, Lincoln announced that would put its television and radio stations up for sale. KJCD, along with its sister stations in Denver, is among the properties being shopped around by Lincoln.
On March 6, 2008, KJCD changed their format to sports, simulcasting KKFN 950 AM. KJCD changed their call letters to KKFN-FM on March 12, 2008, and again to KKFN on March 1, 2009.
