Audacy Adds Former University of Pittsburgh and NFL Star Dorin Dickerson to 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh
PITTSBURGH, PA – June 28, 2022 – Audacy welcomes former NFL veteran Dorin Dickerson to 93.7 The Fan (KDKA-FM) in Pittsburgh. Dickerson will join “The Fan Morning Show” alongside co-hosts Colin Dunlap and Chris Mack, weekdays beginning August 1.
“It is always great to see someone grow within our organization, and through his time in various roles with us, Dorin has truly developed into a host who can entertain on topics well beyond the field,” said Michael Spacciapolli, Vice President and Market Manager of Audacy Pittsburgh. “As a former All-American at Pitt and NFL player, Dorin has a perspective that our listeners truly appreciate and we are extremely excited to welcome his thoughts on the sports world and all things Pittsburgh to ‘The Fan Morning Show’ every day.”
“Excited is an understatement…I didn’t know what my purpose was after I retired from the NFL,” said Dickerson. “Five years ago, I found myself sitting in the 93.7 The Fan studio doing a three-hour show, and immediately fell in love with sports radio. That opportunity wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for Larry Richert having faith in me and passing my name along to the station. I can’t thank Michael Spacciapolli and brand manager Kraig Riley enough for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime. I plan to bring positive energy, experience, and fun to the ‘Fan Morning Show.’ I can’t wait.”
Dickerson started his football career in western PA and was a High School All American and Pennsylvania Player of the Year in 2005 at West Allegheny. He played for the University of Pittsburgh and was First-team All American tight end in 2009. Dickerson was a seventh-round draft pick to the Houston Texans in 2010 and played six seasons in the NFL for the Pittsburgh Steelers, New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills, and Tennessee Titans. He joined the station in February 2017 as an on-air personality.
