iHeartMedia has flipped LGBTQ “Pride Radio 96.7” K244FE Calhoun Beach/Minneapolis MN to Sports “KFAN Plus” utilizing the national Fox Sports Radio lineup.
Creating a second Sports brand to pair with “100.3 KFAN” KFXN-FM Minneapolis, the move comes as Hubbard Radio’s “ESPN 1500” KSTP is preparing to eliminate most of its local shows. The station will be fed by 100.3 KFXN-HD2. The 96.7 signal registered a 0.0 share in the July 2018 Nielsen Audio ratings.
iHeartMedia Minneapolis announced today the debut of KFAN Plus, Sports Radio 96.7, effective immediately. KFAN Plus, an expansion of KFAN 100.3, will broadcast exclusively on HD Radio and can also be streamed digitally on iHeartRadio.
KFAN Plus will broadcast both local and national sports news, including programming content from iHeartMedia Minneapolis’s sports partnerships. The station will also feature a renowned weekday lineup from Fox Sports Radio favorites, such as on-air personalities Dan Patrick and Colin Cowherd.
“We’re thrilled to bring the Twin Cities some of the biggest and well-known national names in sports radio,” said Chad Abbott, Program Director for iHeartMedia Minneapolis’s KFAN, Twin Cities News Talk and KFAN Plus. “KFAN Plus will be a great expansion of KFAN Programming, providing our listeners with even more, around the clock, exclusive sports news content that they love.”
