KFPT (790 AM) is an American radio station broadcasting a Sports radio format. Licensed to Clovis, California, USA, the station serves the Fresno area. The station is currently owned by Fat Dawgs 7 Broadcasting, LLC and features programming from Jones Radio Network, ABC Radio and ESPN Radio.
In the 1980s, the station aired beautiful music with the call sign KXTC. The call letters were meant to imply "Ecstasy". 790 became Spanish-language KOOR in the late 1990s, until changed to KFPT by CBS Broadcasting, implying "Fresno's Progressive Talk" and would become the market's second-most listened-to AM station.
In February 2007, KFPT AM 790 was purchased by Peak Broadcasting from CBS as part of a deal involving other stations including News/Talk KMJ, AM 580. It was then sold to Fat Dawgs 7 Broadcasting. The sale included a non-compete clause to protect Peak's conservative talk station, KMJ. On April 2, 2007, KFPT changed their format from progressive talk to sports, with programming from ESPN Radio.
