KFAN (1270 AM) is a radio station licensed to Rochester, Minnesota. The station owned by Clear Channel Communications, and rebroadcasts sister KFXN-FM in Minneapolis/St. Paul as part of the regional FAN Radio Network.

The station was, for many years, KWEB. In August 2011, Clear Channel parked the KTCN call sign on the frequency for several days, in anticipation of a format and station flip in the Twin Cities market. When KFAN (1130 AM) moved to 100.3 FM and adopted the KFXN-FM call sign, Clear Channel parked the KFAN call sign on 1270 AM in the Rochester market.
