Twin Cities Radio: The Current To Extend Footprint to Duluth

Starting February 1, KCMP The Current 89.3 FM in the Twin Cities said listeners in Duluth would be able to tune in on their own frequency to the noncommercial radio station.

“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.

According to, broadcasting  on Translator W215CG 90.9 FM, the Duluth outlet will play much of what is produced at the St. Paul headquarters.

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.”
