Since 1998, WTIP has aired a variety of live local sports throughout the year, showing support for area teams and bringing games to those who otherwise may not have access. Sports broadcasts on WTIP have grown into a service that is depended upon and greatly appreciated throughout WTIP's listening area and beyond.
Norman Moe and Dick Dorr have volunteered their time and talents for years to bring listeners and sports fans the play by play of football and basketball games. And WTIP's engineer, Jeff Nemitz, lends his technical expertise. On occasion we're able to bring live broadcasts of volleyball games as well, thanks to Bob Carter, Kelly Roberts and Kelly Swearingen.
And in addition to our radio broadcasts, through a collaboration with Boreal Access and ISD 166, we're able to offer a LIVE VIDEO STREAM for some of the Cook County Vikings Home games.
And thanks to the following WTIP Sports Underwriters for helping to make live broadcasts of the Cook County Vikings 2013/14 Basketball games possible:
