KFGO (790 AM, "The Mighty 790") is a radio station broadcasting a news and talk radio format serving the Fargo-Moorhead metropolitan area. The station is currently owned by Midwest Communications Inc. All the offices and studios are located at 1020 S. 25th Street in Fargo, while its transmitter array is located north of Oxbow. It is an affiliate of the CBS Radio Network.
Due to its transmitter power and North Dakota's flat land (with near-perfect ground conductivity), KFGO's provides at least secondary coverage to most of eastern half of North Dakota, northwest Minnesota, northeast South Dakota, and southern Manitoba (a Canadian province). Its coverage area includes Grand Forks, North Dakota, Bemidji, Minnesota, Winnipeg, Manitoba, and Aberdeen, South Dakota.
Former State Senator Joel Heitkamp hosts News and Views and Jack Sunday and Amy Iler host 'It Takes Two.
The KFGO news department includes four full-time reporter/anchors and two part-time reporters. KFGO also has a weather department staffed by a full-time forecaster and staff meteorologist.
