Three usually is a crowd in a broadcasting booth during game coverage. How about a trio yakking during a high-profile afternoon sports-talk show five days a week?

We'll hear how this works beginning July 22 when Denver's two ESPN FM outlets — 102.3 and 105.5 — introduce "The Locker Room" (3-6 p.m.),featuring Gary Miller,Nate Kreckman and Tom Nalen.

The show,destined for a lot of advance tub-thumping,will air opposite Dave Logan and Dave Krieger on KOA 850 AM,Alfred Williams and D-Mac (Darren McKee) on KKFN 104.3 FM and the Mile High Sports duo of Mark McIntosh and Eric Goodman on 1510 AM and 93.7 FM.

The ESPN show is part of a major career change for Miller,who recently signed on as the play-by-play talent for Colorado State football and basketball,airing this fall on 105.5 FM.

Miller ends his 22-year KCNC- Channel 4 career Thursday.

Kreckman has been teaming at 3 p.m. with Charles Johnson,who may move to noon-3 p.m. with Les Shapiro.

Kreckman and Johnson have worked well together,mixing news,opinion and humor.

Nalen,a man of very few words as an honored Broncos center,has been voicing a multitude of opinions with Shapiro.

The winds of change never stop blowing in the competitive world of weekday sports-talk radio. Remember when Miller and Channel 4's Vic Lombardi had a morning show on 102.3 FM for 2½ years beginning in July 2009?

Lombardi is replacing the departed Joel Klatt (now with Fox Sports 1) in the 5:30-9 a.m. time period on 104.3 FM,working with Mike Evans and Nate Lundy,The Fan's program director.

By the way,whatever happened to Jo Jo?

Let's bring back Doug Moe and Tom Green,a popular chatting duo.

Anyone ready for a "Jeopardy!"-type TV show dealing with Denver sports-talk radio down through the years?

More broadcasting names. Noted college basketball analyst Bill Raftery,an ESPN staple for 20 years,has joined Fox Sports 1 to cover Big East basketball,teaming with Gus Johnson.

Raftery will remain with longtime partner Verne Lundquist during CBS Sports' coverage of the NCAA Tournament.

• An example of job security: ESPN has signed lead college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit to a new contract through 2022. He also will continue as an analyst on the Saturday morning "College GameDay" pregame show.

• Former CNN morning anchor Soledad O'Brien,now a member of HBO's "Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel, " made a positive debut last Tuesday with a report on how Iraq war veterans are battling post-traumatic stress disorder through organized mixed marital arts activities.

• "America's funniest dumb blond" put on a two-night stage show at the Mirage in Las Vegas on Friday and Saturday nights.

Don't go through your list of noted blond female entertainers. This performer was Terry Bradshaw,who provided 70-minute shows singing and telling stories about his growing-up years and lively career,which included being a blond toupee model.
