WWNO 89.9 FM New Orleans Public Radio
Location: * South, Louisiana
Beat: Statehouse reporting in Baton Rouge
Position: This RFA corps member covers state government full-time. WRKF 89.3 FM is known for its statehouse coverage, especially "Capital Access," aired daily during the legislative session. In the past, though, there has been just one reporter to cover all news, including state government; WWNO didn't even have a state government reporter. Such limited reporting was unsatisfactory in a state that usually ranks near the bottom of most measures of human welfare and civic progress. This beat uncovers these stories.
