James Merilatt is an 18-year veteran of the Denver sports media scene. Originally, he worked on the team side of things, spending three seasons with the Denver Broncos, where he managed the team’s game program, season-ticket holder magazine and yearbook. Then, he ventured to the other side of the aisle, launching Mile High Sports Magazine in 2002; that publication eventually grew into a multi-media company that included print, radio and digital assets. Currently, he manages Altitude 950’s on-air content as the station’s program director, a position he’s held since the station’s launch in April 2016. Away from the station, James is married (Amber), has three young sons (Ben, Matthew and Ryan), begrudgingly lets two cats (Bill and Muddy Paws) live in his house, coaches his sons in flag football, is a history buff and can’t get enough of sports documentaries.

Will Petersen is a 6-foot-5 Denver native who prefers to shoot the three and avoid the paint. A graduate of The University of Missouri in 2012, Petersen is proud to be a millennial in this anti-millennial word. His stops post-grad before Altitude 950 include cover32, 104.3 The Fan and Mile High Sports. He firmly believes Nikola Jokic is a top-5 NBA talent, Ray Borque hoisting The Stanley Cup is the best moment in Colorado sports history and if you moved here for legal weed you can go home now.</>
