WTIP is pleased to announce the launch of a new signal, WGPO 90.1 FM, in Grand Portage. Prior to the installation of WGPO, the rugged landscape, with rocky hills and low valleys, made it impossible for WTIP’s signal to be received within the village of Grand Portage. The permit for the new signal was finally granted by the FCC last fall after years of work. WTIP’s Director Deb Benedict says, “We’re very excited that Grand Portage will be part of our community of listeners. We’re hoping in the future to do more collaboration with Grand Portage be it history, culture, or music.” With the addition of WGPO in Grand Portage, WTIP’s signal now covers all of Cook County.
