WWNO 89.9 FM New Orleans Public Radio

We cover Louisiana: 14 parishes in all. Our service area ranges from the dense historic neighborhoods of New Orleans to small towns nestled in pine forests and communities hugging bayous. We serve this region with a schedule of news, information, and wide-ranging cultural programming on WWNO 89.9FM and on KTLN 90.5 FM in the bayou country around Houma and Thibodaux. After a post-Katrina rebuilding of staff and membership, WWNO put new emphasis on locally produced news and cultural programs. Our reporting priorities have been public schools reform, water management and coastal land loss, and local arts and culture.
