WTIP is being recognized for two features produced by station staff in the 2011 Minnesota AP Broadcasters Awards.
WTIP’s Barbara Jean Johnson received first place in the series/special category for her story “History Speaks: Recollections of Leng's Fountain” and Kelly Schoenfelder took first place in the feature category for her piece “Moments in Time: Anishinaabe & Isle Royale”.
WTIP is committed to telling the story of our region and exploring the rich history and cultural legacy of the North Shore. Both stories singled out for recognition meet that mission.
