North Shore Community Radio began broadcasting on April 29, 1998 from a small studio in the Arrowhead Center for the Arts in Grand Marais, Minnesota. WTIP’s home is in Minnesota’s most remote county, with some of the most pristine and beautiful environment in the United States. Although Cook County is our home geographically, WTIP serves all of the North Shore of Lake Superior, and inland, from Two Harbors, Minnesota to Thunder Bay, Ontario, as well as areas of the South Shore of Lake Superior in northern Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Our webstream also takes our programs all over the world.
 
North Shore Community Radio broadcasts locally-produced programs from the WTIP studios as well as national and international music, news and public affairs programming.
 
WTIP is a community station. Sources of revenue include listener-members, business underwriters, grants, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and other sources. However, the most important and valued source of revenue is our ever-growing group of listener-members.
 
Because WTIP serves some very remote wilderness areas of three States and one Province, our population base is small. We are supported by our listener-members, but we rely on our good friends who visit the area for expanding the membership group. Whether you are visiting for a day, a week, staying for the season or living in the WTIP listening area, we want you to become a member. You can take us home with you by ‘streaming us online through our website: www.wtip.org.
