WXTF-LP works with the Alcona Community Schools offering guidance and air time for students interested in radio broadcasting. WXTF-LP provides local news and is The Sunrise Side's only broadcast outlet for Pacifica's "Democracy Now" and Harry Shearer's "Le Show" programs. In addition to a state-of-the-art air studio, WXTF-LP has a dedicated "Playroom" live performance studio where local musicians are invited to play.

This station received its original construction permit from the Federal Communications Commission on January 15, 2014.[1] The new station was assigned the WXTF-LP call sign by the FCC on January 23, 2014.[2] WXTF-LP received its license to cover from the FCC on May 22, 2014, and was the first of the new LPFM applicants in Michigan to begin licensed broadcasting.
