WLPR-FM is an FM noncommercial, public radio station broadcasting on 89.1 MHz in Lowell, Indiana and serving Northwest Indiana. The station is owned and operated by Northwest Indiana Public Broadcasting, Inc., which also owns PBS member station WYIN (channel 56), serving as an alternative to Chicago's WBEZ in the Chicago market's eastern reaches. WLPR broadcasts from the WZVN tower on SR-55, just north of SR-2.


Perviously, the station served as the northwest Indiana station for American Family Radio, when Northwest Indiana Public Broadcasting, Inc. purchased the license from AFR for $1,050,000 in September 2008.[1] Northwest Indiana Public Broadcasting, Inc. then requested the callsign to be changed to WLPR.[2] It converted to a public radio format shortly after the sale to NIPB.
