Starting Tuesday, July 24 at 1:00 p.m. 89.9 WWNO's long-running, multi-award-winning feature series Inside the Arts will debut in a new half-hour version hosted by Diane Mack. WWNO's Fred Kasten picks up the story.
This is New Orleans, one of the country's most distinctive cities. Many aspects of activity, identity, heritage and tradition shape that distinction. Some of those elements are good, some are bad. It's time to look at both. It's time for All Things New Orleans.
This month, New Orleans Magazine recognizes WWNO's Diane Mack as its Top Female Achiever. "Over the years [Diane] has been the local host of NPR's flagship news programs, hosted a classical music shift and written and produced interviews for coverage of Tulane University's Friends of Music concert series. She is also the award-winning producer of "Inside the Arts," the station's series on the cultural arts." At WWNO we all know and admire Diane for her hard work, dedication, and creativity, and we are delighted that New Orleans Magazine has likewise recognized her talents.
