KXMR (710 AM) is a radio station located in Bismarck, North Dakota, airing ESPN Radio, and is owned by iHeartMedia, Inc.. ESPN 710 broadcasts Minnesota Twins and Minnesota Vikings games.

The station aired programming from KFAN of Minneapolis, Minnesota, until April 16, 2007, when it became a full-time ESPN Radio affiliate.

On June 1, 2014 at midnight KXMR rebranded as "710 The Fan" and switched affiliations from ESPN Radio to Fox Sports Radio and also airs "Fan" programming from KFXN 100.3 FM Minneapolis, Minnesota.[1] The station rebranded as "Fox Sports 710" in 2015 without any changes to its "Fan" programming.

iHeartMedia, Inc. also owns KFYR 550 (News/Talk), KBMR 1130 (Classic country), KYYY 92.9 (Top 40 (CHR)), KQDY 94.5 (Country), and KSSS 101.5 (Classic rock) in the Bismarck-Mandan area.

On April 27, 2017 KXMR filed an application for a Federal Communications Commission construction permit to move the day transmitter site to the night site and decrease day power to 4,000 watts. Critical hours operation would be discontinued. The application was accepted for filing the following day.[2]
