Well I'm in St Paul and receptions fine for me for the most part.
ESPN 1500, broadcasting a couple miles up University, not so much. Glad they aren't the carrier anymore.

One reason to live in the wilds, I guess. I have tuned in 570AM (Yankton), 1140AM (Sioux Falls), 620AM (Sioux City) and on occasion, 1240AM (Spencer).
Of course, that means being 240 or so miles from the TC (not to mention mlles from restaurants and even fast food cuz I really am in the boonies), but hey, we've got our choice of what station to listen to for Twins broadcasts.

Couldn't be easier to get them in Sioux Falls. They have a station here and WNAX is a blow torch. Driving through the heart of MN? It was hit and miss once WNAX went out. Whatever extra $$ they got from leaving WCCO, the paltry sum couldn't have been worth the collateral damage of not being able to reach your fans. FWIW, I have MLB at bat and listen on it at home. But I refuse to burn data on it while driving through the middle of MN.

Brooklyn Center, here and I always listen to the Twins on the radio. No problems on any of the radios for 93.6.
Also, I have mlb.com and the audio broadcasts are worth it, but I fork over the video cost, as it is fun to watch games elsewhere. I refuse to pay for cable

MLB.TV is great and all for an out of market fan like me, but citizens of Minneapolis/Minnesota should not have to pay to listen to a clear radio broadcast. They paid for the stadium.

What the Twins gained from moving from CCO to KSTP: the Hubbards paid them a million dollars AND all in house ad revenue (thus the Treasure Island Radio Network was born. The Twins kept all that sponsorship money. None of it to the Hubbards.) . And the Twins picked up a lot of affiliates to make up for the small signal of 1500. the KSTP stop was just a layover until the Pohalds figured out to streamline everything and out it on their own channel.
Victory Sports One Radio.
WCCO was never going to agree to to those kind of terms. (at that time, CBS owned stations were cutting back on sports coverage. KMOX/Cardinals was another CBS move).
Im just glad I live in a part of Minnesota where I can pick up New Ulm or Mankato or a couple other distant AM stations.
