1130KFAN Minneapolis MN
A little bit of radio geekiness for you: Clear Channel has completed the formal callsign changes that go along with its Twin Cities format swap. KFAN/1130 (Minneapolis) is now officially KTCN, short for "Twin Cities News/Talk". The KFAN callsign moved to the former KWEB/1270 (Rochester). The Rochester station is also owned by Clear Channel and carries "Fan" programming from what's now KFXN-FM/100.3 (Minneapolis). Clear Channel first changed KWEB to KTCN, which allowed it to swap the Minneapolis and Rochester callsigns with no risk of someone else grabbing KFAN. The KWEB callsign had been used in Rochester since 1957 and is now unassigned.
