KPMI (1300 AM, "The Sports Fox") is an American radio station licensed to serve the community of Bemidji, the county seat of Beltrami County, Minnesota. The station's broadcast license is held by Paskvan Media, Inc.


KPMI broadcasts a sports format including programming from Fox Sports Radio.[1] The station is an affiliate of Red Eye Radio from Cumulus Media Networks.[2]


In January 2004, R.P. Broadcasting, Inc., applied to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for a construction permit for a new broadcast radio station. The FCC granted this permit with amendments on April 27, 2007, with a scheduled expiration date of October 20, 2011.[3][4]

In December 2009, permit holder R.P. Broadcasting, Inc., reached an agreement to transfer the permit to Paskvan Media, Inc., for a total price of $30,000. The FCC approved the move on March 30, 2010, and the transaction was formally consummated on April 20, 2010.[5] The new station was assigned call sign "KPMI" on August 26, 2011.[6][7] After construction and testing were completed, the station was granted its broadcast license on March 1, 2012.[8]
