School Sports Broadcasts

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. From time to time, other community members have volunteered to bring coverage of volleyball and hockey games. In 2019, WTIP's Sterling Anderson has started announcing as well. And many thanks to WTIP's engineer, Jeff Nemitz, who lends his behind-the-scenes technical expertise for each broadcast.
