Interlochen Public Radio, established in 1963, is a network of public radio stations in Northern Michigan. It broadcasts classical music and news on five stations in northwest lower Michigan. It is operated by the Interlochen Center for the Arts, with studios on the center's campus in Interlochen, Michigan; just outside Traverse City. It is an affiliate of National Public Radio and Public Radio International.

At one point early in the 2000s, IPR led the nation in annual listener support.[1] This was all the more remarkable because it is the second-smallest NPR member in Michigan, and one of the smallest in the entire NPR system.


Since 2000, IPR has operated a two-service network. "Classical IPR" (formerly known as "IPR Music Radio") provides classical music and hourly NPR news updates for three station. News and talk programming from NPR and other sources is also heard on three stations, branded as "IPR News Radio".[citation needed]
