After listening to hundreds of submissions and interviewing many great candidates, we are pleased to announce Ben Freid as the new morning show host on the Colorado Sound! He will begin on-air on March 21 at 6am MT.

“I couldn’t be more excited to bring the great listeners of the Front Range the best music to start off their mornings,” says Ben. “It still amazes me that I get to play in the toy department and make a career out of it.”

Ben comes to us most recently from Denver’s Sports Station 104.3 The Fan. “My radio career has taken me all over the place, from working on an afternoon drive sports talk show in Jacksonville, Florida, and doing weekend shifts for a rock station, to producing a sports talk morning show in Denver and doing a Sunday night shift for a country music station. Now, I’m here at the Colorado Sound and ready to start my next chapter.” 

His previous experience coupled with his enthusiasm for music discovery made him the ideal person to step into the giant shoes of the Colorado Sound’s longtime morning show host, Ron Bostwick.

However, be assured that Ron is not going anywhere! He will take over evenings on the Colorado Sound (7-10pm MT weekdays) and continue to be our promotions director.

“I’ve been attached to morning radio shows since I was 17, so they’re kinda natural to me,” Ron explains. “But as the Colorado Sound has grown over these past six years, so have my responsibilities as the station’s promotions director. I’m seeing this move as a way to get more show tickets into the hands of listeners!” 

Ben’s passion for music has been with him all his life. “Growing up I always had a love for music and radio, so the idea of being able to do both as a career is a dream come true,” he says. “Music was a way for me and my mother to connect when I was a kid, and she introduced me to some great bands like the Cure, the Clash and Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. Eventually, I found my real music passion, the 1990s grunge scene. Hearing Kurt Cobain for the first time made me realize how important music was in my life.”

“I’m so excited and honored to join the great team at the Colorado Sound,” Ben continues. “Ron has done a tremendous job entertaining our community in the mornings, and I can’t wait to establish a connection with our listeners to bring them the best music and stories to start off their day.” 

Listen between 6am and 10am MT on Monday, March 21 to help us welcome Ben on the air.
