“The Current has always had a special relationship with Duluth—its vibrant music scene and the community of music-loving fans,” said The Current’s program director Jim McGuinn in a statement.
McGuinn said the popular station chose Duluth for its “burgeoning music scene,” which includes Low, Trampled by Turtles and Charlie Parr.

However, the station said it planned to hire a Duluth-based radio personality to host a weekly Duluth Local Music Show with opportunities to create other programs specific to the region.
“With a presence on the dial in Duluth and the hiring of a Duluth host,” Lindsay Kimball, The Current’s assistant program director, said in a statement, “we’ll be even better positioned to discover the next generation of artists coming out of Duluth, the North Shore and the Iron Range.”
