WWNO's business manager is a member, too! Jameeta Youngblood explains why she became a sustaining member, rather than a dollar-a-day member like she's been in the past.
"It was easier for me to become a sustaining member," Jameeta said. "I felt like I wouldn't have to constantly be reminded to renew my membership, it would automatically happen. I just felt it was something easy for me to do and a lot less work for the membership staff."
Take a look at some of the photos from our Spring Membership Drive, already in full swing! Thanks so much to all of our donors and volunteers, and to you for making New Orleans public radio possible.
Gratitude! That’s what we at WWNO feel at during our membership drive. With the support of hundreds of donors in the last few days, not to mention many others who gave to our Lagniappe Fund earlier this month, we have had a very successful drive so far — but we’re not done yet!
Gratitude! That's what we at WWNO feel at the conclusion of our Fall Membership Drive, which took place from Oct. 19-26. With the support of over 1000 donors in the last ten days, not to mention many others who gave to our Lagniappe Fund earlier in October, we have had a very successful Fall Drive. We at the station were struck by the high number of new and returning members and by the many enthusiastic comments that donors made online or on the phones, voicing support for the new schedule of programs on 89.9 and for 24-hour classical music on WWNO2.

"Through NPR, I travel to places I can't usually go. I enjoy the storytelling aspect of radio. Even in interviews, people talk about their experiences and their stories. I feel like NPR allows me to temporarily go to different places and connects me to experiences and events I wouldn't have the knowledge of otherwise."
