The protests in Minneapolis, over the death of George Floyd at the hands of police, led to the destruction of the studios of Santamaria Broadcasting's Regional Mexican KMNV-AM and K239CJ (La Raza 95.7)/St. Paul. Facilities on the fourth floor of an office building on the corner at 3003 27th Avenue South and E. Lake Street were consumed by fire in an area where the protests and looting were centered. It was a block east of the Minneapolis Police Department's 3rd Precinct that was burned down. KMNV had been off the air since Wednesday due to power outages caused by the protests.

The station posted on Facebook, "As you may already know, the building where our facilities were located was burned down by the same horde that looted dozens of businesses along Lake St. without the authorities intervening to contain them. Right now we are evaluating the options we have and through social media we will be informing you."
