KXPS, "Team 1010," is an all-sports radio station based in Palm Desert, California, United States. It broadcasts on the 1010 AM frequency.

Its lineup comes from a variety of sources: The Dan Patrick Show from Fox Sports Radio and The Jim Rome Show from CBS Sports Radio, with the remainder of their non-local programming coming from NBC Sports Radio and CBS Sports Radio. The station offers local programming during the weekdays with Pure Sports with Geoff "The Dome" Bloom, which airs from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM PST, featuring co-host Barry Long. Team 1010 also carries local weekend programming; such as "Golf is a 4 Letter Word", on Saturdays from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM PST, hosted by Françoise Rhodes.

Play By Play[edit]

The station moved ownership from the Desert Radio Group to CRC Media West in 2011 and in the move gained rights to numerous play by play properties in the Coachella Valley. The Coachella Valley's sports station began airing USC Trojans Football in 2012, as well as Oakland Raiders Football, Los Angeles Clippers Basketball, and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Baseball (all of which were sports properties on stations owned by R&R Broadcasting). Team 1010 carries Monday Night, Thursday Night, and Sunday Night NFL games each season, as well as regular season College Basketball and The NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, which began airing on the station in 2013.

Originally launched in 1961 as KPSI 1010AM, it went through different changes under radio stations KCLB/KCHV, KDES, "K-News" (KCMJ) and KREO/KUNA in the 1970s, 80s & 90s would use that AM dial for temporary periods of time.
