Community Voices

Community voices are a vital part of daily programming on WTIP. From the Gunflint Trail to Reservation River Road, these community-focused features paint a picture of daily life on the North Shore, as voiced through community members representing different areas and aspects of life in the north woods. You can hear segments on North Shore Morning from 8 to 10 a.m. Monday through Friday and on North Shore Weekend, Saturdays from 7 to 10 a.m.
