You rely on WWNO.  We rely on you.

The programs that we broadcast–trusted news, great music, and smart entertainment–would not be available without support from listeners like you. Membership is our number one source of support, followed closely by local business underwriters.

WWNO doesn't air conventional advertising. We don't receive funds from the State of Louisiana, or direct financial support from the University of New Orleans—although we enjoy being on campus, and we appreciate the heating, cooling, and lights!  And though we do receive valuable federal funding through the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, that support has diminished in recent years, and we cannot rely on its availability in the future.

And WWNO does not receive funds from NPR—it’s actually the other way around!  Affiliate stations like WWNO support NPR, largely through your membership donations.

Individual listeners are WWNO’s largest single source of funding, accounting for more than a third of our annual budget. Please join, renew your membership, or contribute an additional gift by using our secure online donation process.

Remember, your support is crucial to keep WWNO, NPR, and all of public radio on the air.
