WDSE, virtual and VHF digital channel 8, is a Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) member television station licensed to Duluth, Minnesota, United States, serving northeastern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin. The station is owned by the Duluth–Superior Area Educational Television Corporation. WDSE's studios are located on rented space at the University of Minnesota Duluth, and its transmitter is located west of downtown Duluth in Hilltop Park.

WRPT (virtual and UHF digital channel 31) in Hibbing, Minnesota operates as a full-time satellite of WDSE; this station's transmitter is located at Maple Hill Park south of Hibbing. WRPT covers areas of Minnesota's Iron Range (including Grand Rapids, Virginia and Chisholm) that receive a marginal to non-existent over-the-air signal from WDSE, although there is significant overlap between the two stations' contours otherwise. WRPT is a straight simulcast of WDSE; on-air references to WRPT are limited to Federal Communications Commission (FCC)-mandated hourly station identifications during programming. Aside from the transmitter, WRPT does not maintain any physical presence locally in Hibbing.
