After seven years as “ESPN Radio 710” Clear Channel Sports KXMR Bismarck has dropped the network.
KXMR has rebranded as “710 The Fan” and airing a mixture of programming from sister “KFAN” 100.3 KFXN Minneapolis and Fox Sports Radio. The new KXMR lineup includes KFAN’s Power Trip from 6-9am, Paul Allen from 9am-12pm, and Dan Barreiro from 3-7pm. Fox Sports Radio programming includes Jay Mohr Sports from 12-3pm, TMZ Sports from 7-8pm, and all night and weekend hours.
Prior to flipping to ESPN in 2007, KXMR had simulcast then 1130 KFAN Minneapolis’ regional network.
With the ESPN Radio affiliation being dropped in Bismarck, no local station has picked up the network yet, however 1400 KQDJ/97.1 K246AM Jamestown has dropped Classic Country for ESPN.
