WDSE•WRPT exists to serve and celebrate the 431,000 people who proudly call the vibrant communities of northeastern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin their home, delivering local, regional and national PBS programming, media services and online resources.
WDSE•WRPT for 50 years has pursued a passion and commitment to serving our community. WDSE•WRPT is governed by a Board of Directors with 23 elected members, who serve on seven different committees. Additional input is sought every year from our Community Advisory Board in Duluth, and our regular Community Advisory Meetings in Hibbing. Nineteen people are employed full time at WDSE•WRPT, an additional fifteen work part time. Each year we receive special help from a roster of over 450 volunteers, who do everything from answering telephones to helping with our yearly “Kids Club Circus” for families who support our children’s programming.
