In our current political hellscape, putting on news blinders has never felt so good. Why stoke nuclear anxiety on your commute? Tune out by tuning into KFAN (100.3 FM), Minnesota’s surprisingly robust sports-talk frequency. The clichéd bloviations of the format are largely absent on the Fan, which trades Bayless-style hot air for thoughtful analysis, fun personalities, and a true sense of community. Beyond its weekday roster of heavy-hitters, KFAN sprinkles other locally sourced goodies throughout the programming schedule, like Paul Charchian’s fantasy football and video game shows, plus the unbeatable Twins insight of Gleeman & the Geek (see Best Podcast). When it comes to talk radio, KFAN is the obvious afternoon champ, especially considering MPR’s syndication slog and KTLK’s MAGA cheerleading.
