Wednesday, December 11 is one important day for WWNO — and for you! It's the one "on-air" day of our Year End Fundraiser.

Fall Member Drive In Full Swing!

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2013

Our good friends at WWNO are in the midst of a fund drive — that niggling but necessary part of the way that public radio in which listeners like you help pay for the programs you love.

Take it from us: the easiest way to listen during a fund drive is with a clear conscience. So give our friends a call and cough up the coin. Then sit back and listen with the smug satisfaction that you’re a member. As they say in the biz: operators are standing-by. 800-286-7002  

Pledge To Win Saints Tickets!

Oct 18, 2013

WWNO's Membership Drive is October 18-25, and if you pledge before 9 a.m. on October 25 you could win tickets to see the New Orleans Saints vs. San Francisco 49ers at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans on November 17, 2013. Kickoff is 3:25 p.m.

Your donation today is what makes the Membership Drive Kick-Off Hour a success. When you give to the Lagniappe Fund, you lead the way, encouraging other listeners to become new members of the station.  They hear your message loud and clear: Public radio is important.

WWNO — New Orleans Public Radio, is listener-supported. That means support from the 1.5 million people in the station's 11-parish audience is our number-one means of support.

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!

Doug Christian's youngest brother works in public radio in Kansas, so that's where his donations go.

But Doug is a New Orleanian and avid WWNO listener. "I have this tremendous guilt that I am not supporting the station here."

So what does he do? Doug volunteers.

"I spend my time here, and spend my money there."

Stephanie Reed

Listener Stephanie Reed says she searched out two things right away when she moved to New Orleans from Maine three years ago: her local farmers market and WWNO.

"That's a good way to feel at home in a new place," Stephanie told WWNO's Fred Kasten.
